The topographic distribution of ventilation in the lungs is determined by the interaction of several factors, including lung shape, airway tree geometry, posture, and tissue deformation. Inter-species differences in lung structure-function and technical difficulty in obtaining high resolution imaging of the upright human lung means that it is not straightforward to experimentally determine the contribution of each of these factors to ventilation distribution. We present a mathematical model for… CONTINUE READING
