Mathematical Analysis of Oxygen Transport to Tissue in the Human
A composite mathematical model which is capable of integrating thermal, respiratory, and circulatory factors in the analysis of oxygen transport is described in this paper. The model has several uses. It provides a mechanism for evaluating parameters for the human when only indirect measurements are available. It can be used also to predict responses under various pathological or stressful conditions. Much work remains to be done, but it is felt that a preliminary report should be included in this conference.
