ABSTRACT
The present paper briefly discusses the behavior of capillaries in skeletal muscle during increased effort, and the factors affecting the capillary circulation. The number of capillaries is then discussed. The number of open capillaries May vary considerably; the relevant literature is reviewed. Personal experiments are described which indicate that formation of new capillaries is possible in very hypertrophic skeletal muscle. This has so far been regarded as doubtful and no reliable evidence to this effect has hitherto been presented.

    Central aortic pressure waveforms can be calculated from the radial artery pressure waveform using a generalized transfer function to correct for pressure wave distortion in the upper limb. Although validated to standards conventionally applied, reservations are still expressed on use of this...

    Background: Epidemiologic studies suggest that high flavonoid intake confers a benefit on cardiovascular outcome. Endothelial function, arterial stiffness, and wave reflections are important determinants of cardiovascular performance and are predictors of cardiovascular risk. Methods: The effect...

Modeling: In the present paper, Murray's law which is applicable to an arterial bifurcation, is...

    The motion of an individual deformable erythrocyte in a capillary whose diameter is smaller than the particle diameter has been considered. The problem formulation is based on the Lighthill-Fitzgerald model. The erythrocyte drag at a given pressure difference acting on its frontal surface has...
