The effect of the width of the ventilation-perfusion distribution on arterial blood oxygen content.

Abstract

We investigate the effect of the width of ventilation-perfusion distributions on arterial blood oxygen content. We assume that the perfusion within the alveolar volume is a continuous function of ventilation-perfusion ratio, known as the continuous ventilation-perfusion distribution, and then write down the conservation of mass equations in the lung… (More)
