Capillary-tissue exchange of substrates and nucleosides in cardiac energetics modeling
Modeling cardiac energetics involves all of the elements of supply or demand. It is complicated: the exchange processes are distributed in space, heterogeneous, requiring parallel units interacting with each other. Multicomponent, multiscale models for the analysis of data are complicated. Using modular units aids building and maintenance. A convenient module is one in which the number of connecting variables is minimized, and the internal complexity is isolated.
