A fluid is a medium which deforms, or undergoes motion, continuously under the action of a shearing stress and includes liquids and gases. Applying biofluid mechanics to the cardiovascular system requires knowledge of anatomy and geometry, pressure data and blood flow, volume and velocity measurements. A good example is the assessment of the haemodynamics of biological and mechanical heart valves.
