Paper Abstract

In this paper we provide a way to distinguish features of renal blood flow autoregulation mechanisms in normotensive and hypertensive rats based on the discrete wavelet transform. Using the variability of the wavelet coefficients we show distinctions that occur between the normal and pathological states. A reduction of this variability in hypertension is observed on the microscopic level of the blood flow in efferent arteriole of single nephrons. This reduction is probably associated with higher flexibility of healthy cardiovascular system.
