Gas exchange between blood and tissue is a complicated process because of factors such as the multiphase nature of the system (red cells, plasma, blood vessel walls, tissue), diffusion-chemical reaction interaction and associated non-linearities, and the irregular and sometimes poorly defined geometry of the system. In view of the complexity of such a system, one therefore seeks a reasonably simple model, or models, which provide a relatively good description of the gas exchange process.
