The concept of re-reflections of blood pressure waves at the heart has been neglected in most models and is only poorly understood so far. Therefore, the aim of this work was to develop a simple mathematical model which is capable to represent the effects of wave travel, wave reflection as well as re-reflection at the aortic valve.
