Abstract

In the present paper pressure changes induced by sudden body acceleration are studied 'in vivo' on the dog and compared to the results obtainable with a recently developed mathematical model. A dog was fixed to a movable table, which was accelerated by a compressed air piston for less than 1 s. Acceleration was varied by changing the air pressure in the piston. Pressure was measured during the experiment at different points along the vascular bed. However, only data obtained in the carotid artery and abdominal aorta are presented here. The results demonstrated that impulse body accelerations cause significant pressure peaks in the vessel examined (about + 25 mmHg in the carotid artery with body acceleration of g/2).
