Portuguese term or phrase: complacência
O modelo Windkessel considera o efeito de amortecimento pela complacência das grandes artérias durante a contração cardíaca. Esta interação permite que o volume sistólico tenha pequeno aumento na pressão arterial e mantenha a perfusão orgânica durante a diástole. A figura 1 apresenta a derivação do modelo Windkessel de 2 elementos aplicado à PPG, onde é I(t) o fluxo de sangue do coração para a aorta, P(t) é a pressão sanguíınea na aorta, C é a complacência arterial da aorta e R é a resistência periférica da circulação sistêmica.
O modelo Windkessel de dois elementos auxila na compreensão do efeito da complacência (C) e resistência (R) do sistema cardiovascular, demonstrando que não só a resistência periférica está aumentada na hipertensão, mas também a redução da complacência, que possui um efeito importante no aumento da PP, identificado como marcador de mortalidade cardiovascular.

Arterial compliance

The classic definition by Spencer and Denison of compliance (C) is the change in arterial blood volume (ΔV) due to a given change in arterial blood pressure (ΔP). So, C = ΔV/ΔP.[4]

Arterial compliance is an index of the elasticity of large arteries such as the thoracic aorta. Arterial compliance is an important cardiovascular risk factor. Compliance diminishes with age and menopause. Arterial compliance is measured by ultrasound as a pressure (carotid artery) and volume (outflow into aorta) relationship.[5]

Compliance, in simple terms, is the degree to which a container experiences pressure or force without disruption. It is used as an indication of arterial stiffness. An increase in the age and also in the systolic blood pressure (SBP) is accompanied with decrease on arterial compliance.
