Abstract

During studies in dogs and humans, dynamic measurements were made of sternal force, displacement and right atrial pressure. A nonlinear phenomenological model is presented which relates right atrial pressure (PRA) to sternal displacement. The ability of this model to fit data from both canine and human subjects provides support for the use of canine models of human CPR. This model also provides a tool for further investigation of the mechanisms of intrathoracic vascular pressure generation.
