Title: A Comparison of Some Selected Inert Gas Transport Models
Author: Furgang FA
Abstract: There have been many theoretical models proposed to describe the transport of inert gases within the body. Some have developed with a specific gas in mind, while others have attempted to provide a general framework applicable to all inert gases. The latter are necessarily more sophisticated expresslons that may more closely approximate reality. Models may be used to predict rate constants of gas exchange, if the pertinent values of physical and physiological parameters are known. They can also predict the rate constant for one gas relative to another. The measurement of relative halftimes, as contrasted to actual halftimes, may possibly offer some advantages in experimentation. Such measurements would serve to distinguish the region of applicability of each model.
