Abstract

Foetal circulation is a complex system that differs from the corresponding neonatal and adult system. Current understanding of the foetal haemodynamics is limited1, while the role of haematocrit at different gestational ages has not yet been investigated extensively. Computational models can aid elucidate circulation haemodynamics2. To this end, this contribution proposes a multi-compartment lumped parameter model of the foetal circulatory system to investigate the effect of haematocrit variations on the systemic arterial flow.
