The study of pulmonary gas exchange involves understanding factors which influence the performance of a complex nonlinear system. Experimentation with a realistic simulation gives the student insight which is very difficult to obtain by conventional teaching methods. A dynamic model of carbon dioxide transport has been developed and implemented on both a special purpose analog computer and a digital computer. The special purpose analog computer has significant advantages for this application.
