BIOE 398BS: Quantitative Human Systems Physiology Spring 2008 Bioengineering, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign 1 Matlab simulation on respiratory system. Due: March 14, 2008 at the beginning of class. Simulation of gas exchange in the lung In this simulation assignment, we will simulate the relationship to which ventilation and perfusion are coordinated in the lung. We will be looking at the optimal condition of uniform ventilation-perfusion ratio and comparing it with some randomization of the ratio. We will also be looking at the effects of varying the inspired oxygen concentration at high altitudes and examining the effect of reducing the oxygen carrying capacity of the blood with anemia. Several questions are asked, please include a discussion of what was being simulated and the results of the simulation. On plots, please include labels and units – these are not provided in the Matlab functions and can be written on the plots after printing. Warning: Steps in the simulation may rely on initial parameters found in these files. Keep track of changes and make copies of files to ensure that you are simulating the correct parameters. To perform the simulation, several Matlab functions (from the Hoppensteadt and Peskin text) can be downloaded on the course COMPASS web site. Lung simulation model: Lung.m This is the main function that runs the simulation Setup_lung.m This sets the initialization parameters.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
