Today (9/20), lecture #7 1) Quiz #3: Muscle structure and function 2) Modeling of physiological processes: measurements of cardiac output and pharmacokinetic models. Thursday (9/22), lecture #8 1) Modeling of physiological processes: compartmental modeling. Announcements 1) Chapters 1 – 4 of the first edition of the Ritter textbook are available on the Blackboard site. Use this for the homework problems and assigned readings, as presented in the syllabus. 2) Problem 1.8 in the Ritter textbook will be covered on Quiz #4, in addition to the assigned physiology reading. This is the 1 st problem for HW#2. Answers to this problem are written on the board. 3) Lecture #23 (Biomechanics and tissue mechanics) on Nov 22 nd is a very important lecture. Multiple exam questions are covered in this lecture. You don’t want to miss it!

Modeling of physiological processes Three general types of models 1) Algebraic Models . Relationships are governed by algebraic equations. Equations can be nonlinear and involve complex functions. Commonly used to describe equilibrium conditions and time-averaged events. For example, cardiac output is a time averaged quantity. 2) Compartmental Models . Relationships are governed by ordinary differential equations and/or mixed sets of algebraic and ordinary differential equations. For example, the kinetics of a drug within various sites of the body can be modeled using ordinary
