Physiological realistic models of the controlled cardiovascular system
are constructed and validated against clinical data. Special attention is paid
to the control of blood pressure, cerebral blood flow velocity, and heart
rate during postural challenges, including sit-to-stand and head-up tilt. This
study describes development of patient specific models, and how sensitivity
analysis and nonlinear optimization methods can be used to predict patient
specific characteristics when analyzed using experimental data. Finally, we
discuss how a given model can be used to understand physiological changes
between groups of individuals and how to use modeling to identify biomarkers.
