We present a reduced–order heart model aimed to introduce a novel point of view in the interpretation of the pressure–volume loops. The novelty of the approach is based on the definition of active contraction as opposed to that of active stress. The consequences of such assumption are discussed with reference to a specific pressure-volume loop characteristic of a normal human patient.

Abstract

We present a reduced–order heart model aimed to introduce a novel point of view in the interpretation of the pressure–volume loops. The novelty of the approach is based on the definition of active contraction as opposed to that of active stress. The consequences of such assumption are discussed with reference to a specific pressure-volume loop characteristic of a normal human patient.
