Model number

Tracer model of distributed model for the O2-CO2 transport, exchange and metabolism.


  A tracer model is developed to study the oxygen change in blood tissue exchange. It shows the 
  simultaneous transport and exchange of oxygen (O2) and carbon dioxide (CO2) in the blood tissue 
  exchange system. The model accounts for the competitive nonlinear binding of O2 with the 
  hemoglobin inside the red blood cells and transport of O2. 


The equations for this model may be viewed by running the JSim model applet and clicking on the Source tab at the bottom left of JSim's Run Time graphical user interface. The equations are written in JSim's Mathematical Modeling Language (MML). See the Introduction to MML and the MML Reference Manual. Additional documentation for MML can be found by using the search option at the Physiome home page.
