This chapter draws together a series of case studies illustrating the application of a variety of modelling approaches relevant to the respiratory domain and also emphasises the range of applications in physiology, medical research, teaching and patient care. Emphasis is place on ensuring that the chosen modelling methodology is well-matched to the purpose of the investigation.
