The notions of effective length, effective reflection site, and resonance frequency of the arterial system stem from the start of the century. The effective length and effective reflection point describe a system analogous to the arterial tree by a uniform tube with one reflection point. The effective length and related effective reflection site may be obtained from the amplitudes of the various pressure harmonics measured at different locations along the aorta or from the input impedance as a… CONTINUE READING
