A Monte Carlo simulation of inert gas transit through skeletal muscle has been extended to include regions of increased gas solubility to simulate regions of high lipid content. Position of the regions within the simulation module was varied, as was the muscle-lipid partition coefficient (lambda). The volume percentage of the lipid regions (alpha) was varied from 0 to 25% while lambda covered the range from 1 to 50. The effects of alpha and lambda on mean transit time and on relative dispersion… CONTINUE READING
