A Mathematical Model of the Unsteady Transport of Oxygen to Tissues in the Microcirculation
We are concerned here with the construction of a mathematical simulation model of the supply of oxygen to tissues from the microcirculation. The mathematical model describes the capillary supply to tissue as well as the distribution and consumption of oxygen within tissue.
