Project Summary Project Information

PROBLEM STATEMENT

Current methods of studying the circulatory system in BIME 492: Systems Physiology Dynamics and Controls Lab are restricted in that the students themselves must act as subjects for their experiments. A physical model of systemic circulation provides the ability for students to model both normal and physiological conditions and measure relevant outputs such as pressure and flow. The model should be able to work together seamlessly with the P16080 heart pump project in order to create a complete model of the entire circulatory system.

The goal of this project is to design a model of systemic circulation which, when used in conjunction with the P16080 heart pump project, can be used as a Circulatory System Model for the BIME 492 course at RIT. The model will allow students to analyze normal and pathological conditions and the effect these various conditions have on this component of the circulatory system. Empirical results from the model will be compared with theoretical models described in Chapter 5 of Quantitative Human Physiology: An Introduction by Joseph Feher. The expected end result is a functional prototype that allows the user to choose a desired physiological condition to model and measure pressure and flow as an output. The final product should have a water inlet pressure that is physiologically relevant and transparent materials should be used in locations where the flow of water can be observed.
