Modeling the Cardiovascular System

As seen in the previous chapters every physiological system requires a modeling approach that is unique, either on account of the experimental constraints or the biophysical characteristics. In the case of complex systems like the cardiovascular system several different models are used to look at different aspects of the system and to serve different end uses. A brief look at some of these different modeling approaches to this one system will serve to illustrate the broad range of modeling approaches that are possible for any system.
