Description

A human lung simulator was implemented using a model based on the Fick principle. The simulator is designed to emulate C02 production and 02 consumption in the body and gas exchange in the lung. The implementation consists of hardware and software to control the flow of gases entering and leaving a ventilated test lung. An initial test of C02 production qualitatively demonstrated that the lung simulator behaved as expected. Since this project is in its initial stages, additional experimentation and model refinement is necessary for the simulator to accurately represent physiologic responses of a human lung.
