To determine the mechanical properties of the left ventricle (LV) as a pump, a mathematical model of its systolic dynamics was developed. Initially the model consisted of three elements, i.e., elastance, resistance, and inertance. Results from three experiments, however, indicated that the inertial component was negligible compared with the other two components. The functional forms of elastance and resistance were determined by applying the flow-pulse response technique to an isovolumetrically… CONTINUE READING
