Mills, R.J., Middleton, S., Moran, F., Murray-Smith, D.J., and Pack, A.I. (1974) Simulation in the teaching of concepts of respiratory gas exchange. International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 5 (3-4). pp. 381-387. ISSN 0020-739X (doi:10.1080/0020739740050311)

Abstract

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.
