Some questions of hydrodynamics and energetics of circulatory and hemic links of the oxygen transport system (part 2)

K.G. Mikhnevich


The 2nd part of the article presents the laws of blood flow through the circulatory system as a closed hydrodynamic circulatory system (CCHS). The value of the CCHS elements that can change its form and volume under the influence of changes in pressure and circulating fluid volume and corresponding to different parts of the vascular system has been shown. The choice of units of measurement for assessing the state of the circulatory system is considered. Much attention is paid to the principles of normalization of hemodynamic parameters.
