Abstract

Common reasons for applying mathematical modelling and computer simulation techniques to biomedical systems include: - (a)use of models as research tools for advancing understanding, (b) development of methods of indirect estimation of physiological quantities, (c) use of models in developing on-line systems for control or therapy and (d) for education and training purposes. This book chapter aims to illustrate these different types of application in the context of respiratory physiology and medicine.
