Cardiovascular Physiology

Part of the CRM Series in Mathematical Physics book series (CRM)

The cardiovascular system provides adequate blood input to the different body organs, responding to sudden changes in demand for nutrient supplies. For a stroke volume of 80 ml and a cardiac frequency of 70 beats per minute, a blood volume of 5.6 l is propelled per minute. The travel time for oxygen delivery between the right atrium and peripheral tissues has a magnitude of O(s).
