A theory of wave propagation in liquid filled distensible tubes, which extends the region of validity of the linear long wavelength theory commonly employed in haemodynamics, is presented and tested against experiments on water filled latex tubes. The theory which is linear and involves but a single free parameter provides excellent agreement with the impulse experiments.
