BACKGROUND A time-domain approach to couple the Windkessel effect and wave propagation has been recently introduced. The technique assumes that the measured pressure in the aorta (P) is the sum of a reservoir pressure (Pr), due to the storage of blood, and an excess pressure (Pe), due to the waves. Since the subtraction of Pr from P results in a smaller component of Pe, we hypothesized that using the reservoir-wave approach would produce smaller values of wave speed and intensities. Therefore… CONTINUE READING
