The goal of this research project is to explore how changing 2 existing default parameters on a cardiac model (the time-to-peak strain and the relaxation duration) affects the model behavior- specifically the dp/dtmax, dp/dtmin, and ejection fraction. The model is used to test different types of CRT (Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy) in order to improve treatments for people with heart failure. Understanding the relationship between these two parameters and overall hemodynamic functions of the heart may help expand the ability of the model to test varying heart conditions with greater accuracy.
