Blood Flow Under Mechanical Stimulations
We propose a one-dimensional blood flow model taking into account muscle pump, external contraction and autoregulation. This model is used to study two effects: blood flow during running and the impact of enhanced external counterpulsation on the coronary blood flow on the basis of patient-specific data. On the basis of mathematical modelling we observe optimal stride frequency, which maximizes venous return.
