National Symposium on Haemodynamics : Clinical and Engineering Aspects


A substantial majority of human death is associated with cardiac failure, not only in our country but also across the world. The changing life style is making the situation worse day by day. Unwanted deposition of fatty acids and glycerol inside the arterial cavity is causing series of problems ranging from stenosis to thrombosis. It is becoming very common even among the people within lower age group. Immediate intervention through medicine and surgery is becoming inevitable for a large section of comparatively young population to solve this type of cardiac problems and save their lives. Here lies the importance of understanding haemodynamics, the study of blood flow or the circulation through arteries, veins and other smaller conduits in human body.

In last few years, this is treated as a growing branch of fluid dynamics and it enjoys tremendous attention of the scientific and engineering community. The fundamental principles of fluid mechanics applied to study the complex pattern of blood flow form the basis of this subject. However it must be taken into account that fluid flow through a rigid walled conduit differs substantially from that in case of flexible walled arteries or veins. Moreover the human blood flow is pulsatile, biphasic in nature and above all the fluid is non-newtonian with continuous lively interaction with the wall. Naturally to mimic the reality in engineering analysis is a difficult proposition and a daunting task ahead of the engineering community.

With the passage of time, the demand on health care system is increasing with the increase in general health consciousness and obviously it puts an extra pressure on the quality of clinical performance. So there is more and more need to collate the two aspects of haemodynamics : clinical and computational (or in other words medical and engineering). The proposed programme is envisaged to focus on both of these two aspects. Experts from the field of computational studies will share their experiences with the clinical practitioners and surgeons. We believe that such an interaction will be beneficial for the medical fraternity, the engineering professionals as well as the large section of the society in general.
