Mathematical Simulation of Oxygen and Carbon Dioxide Transport in Fetal Brain
Dynamic behavior of the fetal system during times of stress is a topic of considerable interest. An understanding of the physiological consequences of abnormal labor, cord occlusion, and maternal death to the fetal system is critical. Also of interest is the response of the fetal control systems during these stressful situations. Quantitative analysis of fetal respiratory function and cardiovascular dynamics using mathematical modeling can contribute to the understanding of these processes. The purpose of this paper is to present a study of carbon dioxide and oxygen concentration in fetal brain tissue during times of stress using a mathematical model.
