Introduction
IntroductionFrom the measurement system for measuring hypertension in humans with an indirect method, to the system for measurement of flow and pressure waveforms in the uterine artery of cows, flow and pressure measurement systems have wide-ranging applications in biology and medicine. A few of the varied methods for making these measurements are discussed below.Measurements of flow and pressure are two of the most important measurements in biological and medical applications. Because there is a complex control system in the human body controlling pressure and flow, the interactions of the measuring system with the physiological control system increase the complexity of the measurement. The invasive nature of flow and pressure measurement also…
