The application of engineering system analysis is a very important field in
biomedical engineering (BME) studies: modeling, simulation and control
of the most important physiological systems. A virtual laboratory for the
analysis and the study of human circulatory system is presented in this paper.
This laboratory is based on the compilation of several mathematical models
described in the literature. In addition, some model parameters have been tuned
by means of experimental data under caffeine stimulus. The computational
tool has been built using MATLAB/SIMULINK and EJS, so it combines
good computation capabilities with interactivity. The virtual laboratory has
been designed in order to understand the operation of the circulatory system
under normal conditions, and to predict circulatory variables at different
types and levels of stimuli and conditions.
