General compartmental models of the cardiovascular system.

Abstract

A systematic discussion on linear as well as non-linear compartmental models of the cardiovascular system and its various feedback mechanism is given. Most of the results are independent of explicit functional expressions. The topological structure of the model is essential for the response to a local change in peripheral resistance. Inclusion of Parallel paths versus serial paths gives qualitatively different response. Global asymptotic stability follows from the general theory.
