A simulation program for the respiratory system using ACSL (Advanced Continuous Simulation Language) is presented. The underlying model is based on the representation of ventilation as a phasic air movement in lungs during the respiratory cycle. The translation of the model with ACSL instructions is described in particular for continuous processes, such as respiratory gas exchanges, and discrete events, such as changes of respiratory phase. The advantages of using ACSL are discussed, and the… CONTINUE READING
