In this paper we give a survey on modeling efforts concerning the CVRS. The material we discuss is organized in accordance with modeling goals and stresses control and transport issues. We also address basic modeling approaches and discuss some of the challenges for mathematical modeling methodologies in the context of parameter estimation and model validation.

State of the Art of Modelling and Simulation of the Physiological Systems
This chapter describes other researchers’ approaches to developing cardiovascular system models as well as three simulation examples, namely a cardiovascular simulator (“CVSim”), a software tool for analysing breathing-related errors in transthoracic electrical bio-impedance spectroscopy measurements, and a simulation of lung edema in impedance cardiography.
Basics of mathematical modeling of pulmonary ventilation mechanics and gas exchange
A simple model is provided that provides a linearized description of pulmonary ventilation mechanics and some equations describing the introduction to chemical regulation of lung ventilation are derived.
Stabilizing Control for a Pulsatile Cardiovascular Mathematical Model
A stabilizing feedback control is designed for the pulsatile model which is obtained by solving a linear-quadratic regulator problem for the linearization of a non-pulsatile counterpart of the pulsesatile model.
A Parametric Framework for Modelling of Bioelectrical Signals
This work has proposed a proposed Novel Generic Framework for Modelling the Bioelectrical Information and the implementation of the Framework and the Experimental results were positive.
Physical modelling and computer simulation of the cardiorespiratory system based on the use of a combined electrical analogy
This object-oriented modelling approach, based on the combined use of electrical analogies, proves to be avaluable tool as a test bench for different strategies aimed to qualitative prediction of the effects of cardiorespiratory interactions during exercise, thus avoiding the formulation of complex mathematical models.
Dynamics of a cardiovascular model obtaining measurable pulsatile pressure output
The pulsatile cardiovascular model can be used to describe cardiovascular dynamics during rest and exercise conditions and a sigmoidal function dependent on heart rate is used to characterize the maximum left ventricular elastance.

Extracorporeal Blood Oxygenation
This chapter deals with machines helping or replacing the natural respiratory function with external blood oxygenation, the extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) or the alternative intravenous membrane oxygenator (IMO, or IVOX), and the newly developed machines combining an oxygenator and a hemofilter.
A Client-Server and Web-Based Graphical User Interface Design for the Mathematical Model of Cardiovascular-Respiratory System
The design of a web-based graphical user interface of mathematical model of cardiovascular-respiratory system (ICRSMM) as an appropriate displaying tool to put an accent of consideration to an area of research that still needs more discoveries and exploration.


Cardiovascular and Respiratory Systems: Modeling, Analysis, and Control
The cardiovascular system under an ergometric workload and the nonlinear feedback law are studied, which shows clear patterns in the response of the immune system to changes in pressure.
A mathematical model for fundamental regulation processes in the cardiovascular system
A model for the response of the cardiovascular system to a short term submaximal workload based on the four compartment model by Grodins provides a satisfactory description of data obtained in bicycle ergometer tests.
Computational modeling of cardiovascular response to orthostatic stress.
A model of the cardiovascular system capable of simulating the short-term transient and steady-state hemodynamic responses to head-up tilt and lower body negative pressure is developed and orthostatic stress simulations are not statistically different from experimental data.
Modeling Pulsatility in the Human Cardiovascular System
This study investigated, modified and combined two existing mathematical cardiovascular models, a non-pulsatile global model and a simplified pulsatile left heart model to have a global lumped parameter pulsatile model that predicts the pressures in the systemic and pulmonary circulation, and specifically the pulses in the finger arteries where real-time measurements can be obtained.
Modeling the human cardiovascular control response to blood volume loss due to hemorrhage
The authors' simulations show that the application of a saline solution is stabilizing in the short term but in the long run only marginally better than the situation with no infusion, however, for the use of whole blood the infused volume stays in the blood vessel compartment and is able to improve the cardiovascular performance.
Modeling arterial hypotension during hemodialysis.
The results suggest that hypotension during hemodialysis is a complex phenomenon that depends on the superimposition of several concomitant factors working together that can lead to a variety of distinct individual patterns.
Receding Horizon Controller for the Baroreceptor Loop in a Model for the Cardiovascular System
The design and implementation of a receding horizon control (RHC) which will be used to represent the control for the baroreceptor loop in the human cardiovascular system (CVS) and the results of the RHQ implementation will be compared with the LQR implementation.
