Capillary-Tissue Exchange Kinetics: Diffusional Interactions Between Adjacent Capillaries
On the basis of their blood supply, organs in the mammalian body can be classified into two types: well-perfused and poorly perfused. The well-perfused organs include liver, heart, lungs, kidneys, and brain; and the poorly perfused organs include skin and subcutaneous tissue, and resting muscle.
