Abstract

The understanding of physiological mechanisms, involved in the dynamics of respiratory adjustments, and their quantitative representation is of major concern in physiology and medicine. A necessary prelude to any analysis of respiratory regulation is the construction of a respiratory plant model which accurately mimics changes in the various state variables following an external disturbance imposed on the system. Most investigators in the past have attempted to uncover the control hierarchies inherent in respiratory regulation without assessing the validity of their plant representations. As a result relatively little has been accomplished in the delineation of the actual transport processes within blood and tissue fluids. [...]
