He likened this process to the air chamber Windkessel on fire-engines of the time, where the alternate compression and decompression of the air in the chamber produced a relatively steady flow, heodynamics the irregularity introduced by the reciprocating pump driving the flow. Thus, the flow is assumed to be fully developed, in the sense that the distance from the entrance is large enough that the velocity profile is no longer varying with milor along the tube.

Since the same cardiac output that flows through the aorta must also flow through the capillaries, the velocity is about times slower in the capillaries. Thus hemodynamics explains the physical laws that govern the flow of blood in the blood vessels. Thus, both aggregation and deformation of red blood cells contribute to the reduction of blood viscosity with increasing shear rate, as shown in Figure 7.

At a fundamental level, the study of hemodynamics is concerned milnof the distribution of pressures and flows in the circulatory system.


For many fluids, including air and water, the viscosity is an intrinsic property of the fluid at a given temperature and pressure. These and other aspects of venous hemodynamics are discussed by Fung Milnir in curved, helical and branching arteries When blood flows through a tube milhor has a curvature in a single plane, the change in flow direction involves a change in momentum, which is driven by a pressure hemidynamics across the vessel cross-section, with higher pressure at the outside of the curve.

Cross-talk between cardiac muscle and coronary vasculature. On the arterial side of the circulation, the decline in flow velocity closely parallels the decline in diameter, as indicated in a logarithmic plot Figure 8. Some basic aspects are discussed in the following sections. In continuum mechanics, miknor fluid is defined as a material that can be at equilibrium without stress in many different configurations, i.

Since blood is effectively incompressible, any increase in volume flow rate with position x implies that the cross-section area must be decreasing with time milonr that position, and vice versa.


The wall is customarily described in terms of three main layers, tunica intima, tunica media, and tunica adventitia This can lead to varicose veins, leg edema, and eventually ulcer formation. Hemorynamics x -scale is greatly compressed here for illustrative purposes.

Under normal conditions, to avoid atherogenesis, thrombosis, smooth muscle proliferation and endothelial apoptosis, shear stress maintains its magnitude and direction within an acceptable range. Velocity profiles indicate approach to fully developed flow. Clots Thrombus Hemodynamic Renal vein thrombosis. As a result of the compliance of the arteries, the pressure pulse produced by the heart is not transmitted immediately to all parts of the arterial system, but is propagated along the vessels in the form of a traveling wave.

If the displacement is the same for every point in the object, then it has undergone a translation without any deformation. Thin-wall theory For a basic analysis of the stress generated in an artery wall by blood pressure, it is helpful to consider first the thin-wall case, in which the thickness of the wall is assumed to be much smaller than the vessel radius.

Hemodynamics – Wikipedia

From a hemodynamic perspective, the flow of blood in arteries has several prominent characteristics. The changes in shape and flexibility affect the mechanical properties of whole blood.

The resulting flow in a uniform tube driven can be computed by superimposing the velocity profiles generated by Poiseuille flow for the steady component mipnor by the above analysis for the oscillatory components. The measurement of blood pressure using the standard milnof with an inflated cuff wrapped around the arm represents another common situation where pulsatile blood flow is strongly affected by external pressure.

This particular tensor is of second rank, i.

Med Biol Eng Comput. To characterize the relevant phenomena in pulsatile flow, it is helpful to introduce a dimensionless parameter analogous to the Reynolds number. Dependence of intramyocardial pressure and coronary flow on ventricular loading and contractility: The theoretical analysis of pulse wave propagation has a long history Shear dependence of effective cell volume as a determinant of blood viscosity.

In this case, the transmitted pressure wave has higher amplitude than the incident wave. When blood flows through a tube that hemodyhamics a curvature in a single plane, the change in flow direction involves a change in momentum, which is driven by a pressure gradient across the vessel cross-section, hemodyna,ics higher pressure at the outside of the curve.


Pa, PascalmmHg and cmH 2 O. Gray area represents artery, and small arrows indicate local fluid velocities. In general, any flow system with the character of a jet, where a stream of faster moving fluid enters a wider region of slower moving fluid, is prone to instability.

In that case, resultant forces are generated when the stresses on two opposite faces of the cuboid are different.

Windkessel model for the aorta and large arteries Stephen Hales in 35 recognized the role that the compliance of the aorta and large arteries plays in creating a more steady blood flow rate to the tissues than the sporadic ejection provided by the heart. Liquids, including water and blood, have very large resistance to volume changes in response to changes in hydrostatic pressure and can be regarded as incompressible from a hemodynamic perspective.

The solution to the wave equation given in Eq. All these forces must sum to zero, i. The size of the region is then considered to approach zero.

The formed elements are plateletswhite blood cells and red blood cellsthe presence of these formed elements and their interaction with plasma molecules are the main reasons why blood differs so much from ideal Newtonian fluids. The vessel diameter is the most principal determinant to control resistance. Symp Soc Exp Hemodjnamics.

When blood flows in narrow tubes, the concentration of red blood cells within the tube tube hematocrit, H T is observed to be less than the concentration in the blood entering and leaving the tube discharge hematocrit, H D. These findings can be understood as follows.

This finding is consistent hemkdynamics the concept that blood vessels sense and respond to levels of wall shear stress, and that this mechanism hemodyna,ics an important role in determining the structural diameter of blood vessels Red blood cells in flowing blood do not generally retain the characteristic biconcave disk shape that they have under static conditions.
