Abstract.

In the paper researches of human's greater circulation, modeled as an electric equivalent circuit were presented. The results of investigations were obtained by applying of electric equivalent circuit and compared with data supplied by a physical, hydrodynamic model of the circulatory system, elaborated by the Biocybernetics Group at the Foundation of Cardiac Surgery Development (Zabrze, Poland).
