Pulmonary arterial compliance in children with atrial and ventricular septal defect

Abstract

Previous studies have documented the normal values of pulmonary arterial compliance (Cp) in animals and adult humans. In the past, variations in Cp and its measurement in children with septal defects has been unknown. In the present study, we found the Windkessel model, which uses compliance and resistance as parameters, to be a useful tool in understanding… (More)
