Geometric and Dimensional Model of the Respiratory Zone
- 360 Downloads
Physiologists repeateadly have made use of simple anatomic models of the respiratory elements of the lung in their functional analysis of gas exchange phenomena occurring at the alveolo-capillary level (Müller, 1945; Grün et al., 1956; Kreuzer, 1953; Thews, 1957; and others). While these models were mostly hypothetic and did not reflect the actual geometric and quantitative relations between the elements, it is now possible to propose a more “realistic” model on the basis of the morphometric studies presented in the preceding paragraphs.
