We present a simplified heart model with the aim of introducing a mechanical point of view in the interpretation of the pressure–volume loops. In particular, we propose a mechanical description of muscle contraction, and discuss its implications with reference to a specific pressure–volume loop representative of a normal human patient.

Abstract

We present a simplified heart model with the aim of introducing a mechanical point of view in the interpretation of the pressure–volume loops. In particular, we propose a mechanical description of muscle contraction, and discuss its implications with reference to a specific pressure–volume loop representative of a normal human patient.
