Modeling the Steady-State Effects of Mean Arterial Pressure on the Kidneys
Goal: We describe the relationship between mean arterial pressure (MAP) and glomerular filtration rate (GFR) since therapies affecting MAP can have large effects on kidney function. Methods: We developed a closed-loop, steady-state mechanistic model of the human kidney with a... Read more

Alveolar Tissue Fibers and Surfactant Effects on Lung Mechanics – Model Development and Validation on ARDS and IPF Patients
Goal: Alveolar compliance is a main determinant of lung airflow. The compliance of the alveoli is a function of their tissue fiber elasticity, fiber volume, and surface tension. The compliance varies during respiration because of the nonlinear nature of fiber... Read more
