Some factors affecting oxygen uptake by red blood cells in the pulmonary capillaries.

Abstract:

In this study we investigate the equations governing the transport of oxygen in pulmonary capillaries. We use a mathematical model consisting of a red blood cell completely surrounded by plasma within a cylindrical pulmonary capillary. This model takes account of convection and diffusion of oxygen through plasma, diffusion of oxygen through the red blood cell, and the reaction between oxygen and haemoglobin molecules. The velocity field within the plasma is calculated by solving the slow flow...
