Based on physiological knowledge, and on an analysis of signals related to its dynamics, we propose a model of the cardiovascular system. It consists of coupled oscillators. Each of them describes one of the subsystems involved in the regulation of one passage of blood through the circulatory system. The flow of blood through the system of closed tubes-the blood vessels-is described by wave equations.
