Overall Myogenic-Coordination: Building Stones in the Whole-Body Integration and Tuning
A comparative presentation of amplitude-frequency characteristics in the kidney (macro flow and micro flow) and the coronary vascular system is shown in Fig. 5.1. The right side of the illustration (b) shows the contractions of the aorta, lymph node, and stomach on stretch increase. In the amplitude characteristics of the circulatory organs, the vascular resistance is illustrated, but not the flow characteristics. The comparison of all theses curves indicates that vascular resistance at the microscopic and macroscopic levels, and the contraction properties of the aorta, lymph nodes, and the stomach, show good accordance. In other words, the contractility of the vascular bed, large arteries such as aorta, large veins such as the portal vein, lymph nodes, peristaltic organs such as the stomach, intestines, and uterus all show the same resonant properties.
