Abstract

Regulation of the cardiovascular system depends upon the coordinated activity of many homeostatic processes. These regulatory activities can be broken down into their component parts using engineering principles of control systems. In this article, the components of control systems are defined and illustrated with examples of known cardiovascular mechanisms.
