Abstract

Numerous advantages arise from a concise mathematical formulation of the influence of capillary permeability on tracers in the blood. The paper deals with a theoretical description of the depletion of a blood-borne tracer under the combined influences of the reversible process of transcapillary diffusion and irreversible processes such as renal excretion and first-order enzymatic degradations. Numerical calculations are illustrated graphically to show application of the theory to typical tracer dilution problems.
