A simplified model for mitral valve dynamics
(University of Canterbury. Electrical and Computer EngineeringUniversity of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering, 2013)
Located between the left atrium and the left ventricle, the mitral valve controls flow between these two cardiac chambers. Mitral valve dysfunction is a major cause of cardiac dysfunction and its dynamics are little known. ...
Assessment of ventricular contractility and ventricular-arterial coupling with a model-based sensor
(University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering, 2013)
Estimation of ventricular contractility and ventricular arterial coupling is clinically important in diagnosing cardiac dysfunction in the critically ill. However, experimental assessment of indexes of ventricular ...
