Multicompartment model of lung dynamics.

Abstract

A mathematical model was developed to simulate the function of the lungs. The lungs are represented by 24 compartments each corresponding to a generation of the Weibel model A. In the model it is assumed that gases are transported in the lungs by convection and diffusion from one compartment to the other. Furthermore, the clearance of gases from the lungs… (More)
