Experiments on gas transfer to a film of blood through a membrane

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The result of an increase in mean saturation of blood predicted by two mathematical models was verified by means of a series of experiments using cattle blood flowing in a 1.1 mm thick film, with flow rates ranging between 0.6 and 2.5 cc/min. The use of the equation of O2 transfer without taking into account the coupled CO2 transfer leads to slightly conservative predictions, and experimental data fit the calculated values of saturation within an error of 5%. For very slow flow rates the deviations reach 10%.
