A mathematical model that can approximate cardiovascular dynamics is useful for monitoring the physiological state of a patient with cardiac disease or for the evaluation of cardiac function. The simplest model of the cardiovascular system is the windkessel model which is expressed with a corresponding linear differential equations. On the other hand, a time-series model in the discrete-time domain is more useful for studying the cardiovascular system. Although the two methods are based on simple and linear model, good results are obtained under less-invasive conditions and with short computational times.
