dc.description.abstractThis research presents the development of a depulsation system for the chronic depulsation of the systemic circulations of a research animal. The system is designed so the animal may be alert and unrestrained while the system is activated. The transfer functions describing the change in the systemic circulation are found by the use of an electrical analog of the depulsator— systemic circulation system. Depulsators are constructed and implanted. Studies are performed to investigate the affect of the depulsator on the cardiovascular’ system variables. Multiple regression analysis is applied to the data. The depulsator is found to have no affect on the cardiovascular variables except to reduce the blood pulse pressure and to slightly increase the mean blood pressure. The increase of the mean blood pressure is believed to be caused by the additional resistance presented to the blood flow by the depulsator.eng
