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.

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.

Abstract

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.
