Abstract

Transport of carbon dioxide in biological systems is of longstanding interest in the fields of physiology and biomedical engineering. Physiologists have considerable interest in the processes by which metabolically produced CO2 is removed from the tissue and transported to the lungs. Biomedical engineers have been concerned with the removal of CO2 from the oxygenator (better known as the artifical gas exchange device). For both problems, a better understanding of CO2 transport in blood protein solutions and blood is required.
