Mathematical modeling is a powerful tool to study the overall behavior of the cardiovascular system (CVS). To build a personalized or predictive mathematical model of the human CVS, it is essential to validate the model outputs with some empirical results (measurements). In this paper, we developed a 0D model of the human arm arteries for inflow boundary condition in complement with the data obtained from a healthy person. Further, the model outputs are validated/compared with the non-invasive flow measurements taken at ulnar artery using Doppler ultrasound (Toshiba’s Aplio 500). We observed a good agreement between model simulations and flow measurements taken at ulnar artery of a healthy person .
