Mathematical modelling of oxygen transport to tissue.
The equations governing oxygen transport from blood to tissue are presented for a cylindrical tissue compartment, with blood flowing along a co-axial cylindrical capillary inside the tissue. These governing equations take account of: (i) the non-linear reactions between oxygen and haemoglobin in blood and between oxygen and myoglobin in tissue; (ii) diffusion of oxygen in both the axial and radial directions; and (iii) convection of haemoglobin and plasma in the capillary. A non-dimensional a...Expand abstract
