Description Pulse Pressure is a computer model that simulates the arterial pressure pulse. The user explores factors like heart rate, stroke volume, arterial compliance, and arterial resistance and see how they affect the arterial pulse pressure.

This is a wonderful Labview based program. its simple to understand cardiovascular dynamics.good for undergraduate and graduate students only....its interesting to note how software based teaching can be made in the classrooms....i shall take it to the screen of my class and show my students how sensitive is our cardiovascular dynamics....

It is difficult to teach how changes in venous return, heart rate, arterial compliance or total peripheral ressitance impact the arterial pressure waveform using static diagrams.  The Arterial Pulse Model program allows students to make such manipulations, predict how such a change will manifest, then visualize what happens.  I expect that use of this program would enhance learning this difficult conetent for most students.
