This book chapter is concerned with the modelling process in relation to respiratory physiology and medicine. Mathematical methods are outlined that allow the steady-state and dynamic properties of the system to be examined within the context of an integrated experimental and theoretical framework. Such an approach is relevant whether the aim is to produce a model for use in research, for the development and application of model-based methods of pulmonary function testing or for predicting the response to drug therapy i relation to airway disease.
