Mathematical Model of the Respiratory System – Comparison of the Total Lung Impedance in the Adult and Neonatal Lung
A mathematical model of the respiratory system is
introduced in this study. Geometrical dimensions of the respiratory
system were used to compute the acoustic properties of the
respiratory system using the electro-acoustic analogy. The effect of
the geometrical proportions of the respiratory system is observed in
Electro-acoustic analogy, total lung impedance,
mechanical parameters, respiratory system.
Design of the Mathematical Model of the Respiratory System Using Electro-acoustic Analogy
The article deals with development, design and
implementation of a mathematical model of the human respiratory
system. The model is designed in order to simulate distribution of
important intrapulmonary parameters along the bronchial tree such as
pressure amplitude, tidal volume and effect of regional mechanical
lung properties upon the efficiency of various ventilatory techniques.
Therefore exact agreement of the model structure with the lung
anatomical structure is required. The model is based on the lung
morphology and electro-acoustic analogy is used to design the
Model of the respiratory system, total lung
impedance, intrapulmonary parameters.
