Essential hypertension: an approach to clinical data by the use of models.
A new approach, based on animal circulatory models, was proposed for the study of clinical data in hypertension. Clinical data were identified with steady states in models. From the study of models, possible impairments, susceptible to account for the observed derivations of steady states in men, were analyzed. To be specific, the 1967-Guyton-Coleman model was confronted with a set of data on essential hypertension. The approach afforded a physiological interpretation for statistical results performed on clinical data.
