Abstract.

The paper presents examinations of human's greater part of the circulatory system, modeled as an electric net. The similarities between human's greater circulation and the electric model have been evolved. The analysis of the greater circulation was performed in PSPICE – an environment of electric circuits modeling. The designed model allows to analyze human's greater circulation in physiological and pathological cases.
