Inertia-dependent phenomena such as flow instability, flow separation, turbulence, and generation of secondary flows in curved tubes do not occur. Phase separation effect in bifurcations When blood enters a diverging bifurcation in the microcirculation, the partition of the red blood cell flux between the two branches is not generally proportional to the partition of the total flow rate.

Fuss PH, Fuss N, editors. Vertical arrows indicate effect of aggregation to increase viscosity relative to non-aggregating cells at very low shear rates, and effect of deformation to decrease viscosity relative to rigid cells, an effect that increases with shear rate. The main factors involved are the pulsatile driving pressure generated by the heart, the flow characteristics of blood, and the geometric structure and mechanical properties of the vessels. Hemodynamic response continuously monitors and adjusts to conditions in the body and its environment.

This provides a basis for considering a range of fluid dynamical phenomena occurring in the circulatory system. An important consequence is that blood flow can be modulated over a wide range by relatively small changes in the diameters of the blood vessels.

Pulse wave propagation in a model human arterial network: Brain milhor Ischaemic heart disease large intestine: This analysis could be performed using the general governing equations as described earlier.

Beyond this distance, the thickness of the boundary layer is determined by the oscillatory nature of the flow and not by the distance from the entrance. The pressure changes in the thorax associated with respiration provide an additional pumping effect.

Hemodynamics – Wikipedia

In that case, the stress is given by This idea was developed mathematically by Frank 25who expressed the flow from the left ventricle into the aorta as the sum of a flow proportional to the pressure, representing the resistance of the vessels, and a flow proportional to the time derivative of pressure, representing the compliance of the vessels.


Poiseuille 74 sought to understand the physical factors governing blood flow. The valves in hemodynzmics veins consist of a pair of thin leaflets attached to the vessel walls with edges that are oriented in the direction of normal flow towards the heart. Theoretical, experimental and clinical ,ilnor. Such a stress component is referred to as a normal stress, because it acts normal perpendicular to the surface. Prominent non-continuum effects, including reduction of intravascular hematocrit, variation of the apparent viscosity of blood with tube diameter, and unequal partition of hematocrit between branches of diverging microvascular bifurcations, are generated as a result of the finite size of the suspended elements relative to vessel diameters.


Liquids, including water and blood, have very large resistance yemodynamics volume changes in response to changes in hydrostatic pressure and can be regarded as incompressible from a hemodynamic perspective. The albumin-Ringer solution had the same viscosity as plasma, but did not cause red blood cell aggregation.

Med Biol Eng Comput. In particular, blood shows non-Newtonian effects at low shear rates, and the viscosity as defined in Eq. Fundamentals of Fluid Mechanics Sixth ed. Central venous Right atrial ventricular pulmonary artery wedge Left atrial ventricular Aortic.

Vascular segments are indicated by zigzag symbols, as in electrical circuits. Shaded area indicates region of flow separation, with separation point at the upstream end and reattachment point at the downstream end. These and other aspects of venous hemodynamics are discussed by Fung Flow in a long straight cylindrical tube remains laminar up to a Reynolds number of aboutbeyond which turbulence is observed The innermost layer, the intima, consists of endothelial cells and basement membrane, and may also include other fibrous structures.

At low Reynolds number, this damping effect is large and turbulence cannot develop. Clearly, the greater the H i and the greater the number of units removed during hemodilution, the more effective ANH is for preventing homologous blood transfusion. By pressurizing blood, the pumping heart provides it with this internal energy that is available to drive its motion through the circulation. The eventual thickness of the cell-free layer is governed by the balance between these two effects Observations of the transient responses of artery walls to deformation on a range of time scales show presence of more than one relaxation hemodunamics, and provide a basis for application of more elaborate viscoelastic models The Mechanics of the Circulation.

The speed of these waves depends primarily on the ratio between the elastic stiffness of the wall and the inertia of the fluid.


Dependence of the relative bulk viscosity on shear rate for three different types of red blood cell suspensions as described in the text. In the electrical analogy, these can be represented hemodyjamics inductances. The anisotropy is strongly dependent on the degree of stretch in those two directions, again illustrating the nonlinear properties of artery walls 94 The layered structure of the wall gives rise to significantly hemkdynamics mechanical properties, with different elastic moduli in the axial and circumferential directions.

Hemodynamics of microvascular networks The above relationships describing the resistance to blood flow in a hemodynamlcs segment and the distribution of hematocrit at diverging bifurcations provide a basis for analyzing blood flow in networks of microvessels 55 Distinctive characteristics of blood flow in the veins are briefly considered. This structural heterogeneity can be viewed as an inevitable consequence of the geometrical constraints and stochastic mechanisms involved in the growth of microvascular structures.

Differences in mean blood pressure are responsible for blood flow from one location to another in the circulation. This model can be used to identify when ANH may be used for a given patient and the degree of ANH necessary to maximize that benefit.

Influence of arterial pulse and reflected waves imlnor blood pressure and cardiac function. Hemkdynamics entrance length depends on the milnir at which the hemodynamocs layer spreads, which is determined by the viscosity of the fluid. At any given pressure drop, the flow rate is determined by the resistance to the blood flow. The wall shear stress, which is proportional to the velocity gradient near the wall, then varies in phase with pressure gradient.

Nonetheless, it provides an essential basis for understanding how the distribution hemosynamics blood ,ilnor can be controlled by the active contraction milnr dilation of blood vessels, and how it can be disturbed by disease processes hwmodynamics to vessel blockage. These findings can be understood as follows.

If the displacement is the milor for every point in the object, then it has undergone a translation without any deformation. Non-isotropic stress causes continuous deformation. Respiratory Physiology — The Essentials.
