Abstract

Classical hydraulics, electronic analogs, animal studies, and numerical solutions to the equations of motion using a digital computer, have been applied to the investigation of atrioventricular flow dynamics. The results are complementary, consistent, and have served to elucidate the patterns of flow and the overall system dynamics. The role of inertia is shown to be significant in understanding instantaneous pressure-flow dynamics and cusp motion; and the quasi-steady nature of the time average properties have been investigated.
