A Physical Model of the Human Circulatory System for the Modeling, Control and Diagnostic of Cardiac Support Processes

  • Conference paper
Mechatronics 2013

Abstract

This study discusses the concept of building and capabilities of the physical model of the cardiovascular system, which will be used for research of the heart support processes. The paper describes the functionality of the system and the data acquisition configuration necessary for the purposes of assist devices modeling, control algorithms development and testing, as well as for implementation of support processes diagnostics. Exemplary hardware for elements representing the selected components of the circulatory system, is presented. Selected measurement devices and methods of pathological conditions modeling are described.
