The purpose of this project is to examine what influence the regulation of blood vessel compliance has on syncope during tilt experiments. This is accomplished by introducing a compartment-model of the circulation and introducing models of the effect of gravity, regulation of blood vessel compliance and seepage af fluid from the blood to the surrounding tissues. Teh equations of the model are solved numerically with ODE15s in MatLab. It is concluded that the limitation of regulation of vein compliance may be the cause of syncope during tilt experiments.
