Current features

Simulate heart rate, stroke volume, mean arterial pressure, systolic arterial pressure, diastolic arterial pressure and central venous pressure, as well as pressure, compliance, elastance and volume of 21 compartments

Plot all data with a single python script

Simulate tilt tests and modify parameters from terminal. In a tilt test a person is lying on an inclinable bed. The effects on the cardiovascular system are similar to those of microgravity.
