Abstract

The overall goal of our synergistic physiological/ mathematical research efforts is to investigate the mechanisms of regulation of mass transport and its effects on contractility in heart muscle. The mathematical portion complements the physiological work by suggesting the relative significance of physiological phenomena by modeling the oxygen transport characteristics. This will lead to further and more critical experimental study. Examples of this synergism are indicated throughout the paper.
