A Quantitative Estimation Of Regulation And Transport Limitations In The Human Cardiopulmonary System , Sharmista Chatterjee
Retrospective Theses and Dissertations
The object of this dissertation is to quantitatively describe the regulation of some of the exchange processes within the human body. Conceptually this dissertation is divided into two sections. In the first section a macroscopic view was adopted to describe the overall regulation of the cardiovascular and respiratory systems. These overall system models were used as heuristic tools to gain an understanding of physiological behavior in micro-gravity. In the second section, a microscopic view was used to estimate the role played by the surfactant system of the lung in regulating the transfer of fluid across the pulmonary-capillary wall;The basis ...
