Arterial simulators are a useful tool to simulate the cardiovascular system in many different ﬁelds of application and to carry out in vitro tests that would constitute a danger when performed in in vivo conditions. In the literature, a thriving series of in vitro experimental set-up examples can be found. Nevertheless, in the current scientiﬁc panorama on this topic, it seems that organic research from a metrological and functional perspective is still lacking. In this regard, the present review study aims to make a contribution by analyzing and classifying the main concerns for the cardiovascular simulators proposed in the literature from a metrological and functional point of view, according to their ﬁeld of application, as well as for the transducers in the arterial experimental set-ups, measuring the main hemodynamic quantities in order to study their trends in speciﬁc testing conditions and to estimate some parameters or indicators of interest for the scientiﬁc community.
