Applied mathematical modelling of pulmonary function tests

Subtitle:
Computational models of airflow, blood flow and gas transport, applied to simulation of clinical pulmonary tests
Abstract:

The lungs are an incredibly complex pair of organs, whose function is strongly driven by both shape and structure. However, in standard clinical practice lung function is assessed through analysis of 'at-the-mouth' measurements, which by their nature represent a smoothing of behaviours throughout the lungs. Due to this there is a lack of precision in the understanding of how different pulmonary function test outputs respond to different types of lung disease. Within this thesis we apply ma...
