The role of hemodynamic and regulatory factors in the arterial pressure response to hemodialysis induced hypovolemia was investigated by means of a computer model of the cardiovascular system, including the main short-term pressure regulatory mechanisms. The model mimics the arterial and venous systemic circulation, Starling's law and inotropic heart regulation, arterial and cardiopulmonary baroreflex controls of resistance, and capacitance vessels. All of the model parameters have a clear… CONTINUE READING
