The pressure-flow relationships of collapsible tubes were studied utilizing the Starling resistor model. Reynolds numbers much higher than previously reported were used to simulate high cardiac output states. Alterations which occur in vivo, including longitudinal tension, stretch, tubing diameter, length, and outflow resistance were also simulated and systematically investigated. The pressure-flow curves showed an initial rising phase, a plateau phase, as well as a late-rising phase which has… CONTINUE READING
