Abstract

The pressure-dependent compliance and viscoelastic characteristics of arteries can be observed from experimentally determined pressure-diameter relations. These relations reveal the limitations in the use of linear arterial system models for the determination of systemic arterial compliance for the purpose of evaluating the dynamic load of the left ventricle.
