Effect of altered gas diffusivity on alveolar gas exchange-a theoretical study.

Abstract

Experimental studies have established that alveolar gas exchange is inversely relation to the molecular diffusivity of gas in the lung airways. The mechanism underlying this relationship is, however, unclear. To investigate this phenomenon, the conditions relevant to the experimental studies are simulated using a computational model of pulmonary gas… (More)
