The critical radius where the bubble behavior changes from damping oscillation to overdamping one is obtained from the condition f = 0:
In this case, the bubble has an overdamping behavior.
A number of factors are thought to contribute to suboptimal damping; air bubbles within the tubing system dramatically increase the CoD, as do blood clots--both resulting in overdamping, while excessive lengths of tubing reduce the CoD, resulting in underdamping.
