The same periodic components are demonstrated for different functions, and at different sites, of the human cardiovascular system. The wavelet transform is used to show that their frequencies and amplitudes are modulated, providing experimental evidence that the dynamics of blood distribution is governed by five almost periodic and mutually coupled processes. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.
