Exploratory clinical studies use ovine neonates to study the efficacy of new respiratory support treatments for human neonates with respiratory distress syndrome. A mathematical model of the ovine neonatal respiratory system is developed to understand the mechanisms of respiratory improvement noticed in clinical trials. Simulating the ovine lung as a five-lobe branched system, the model aims to simulate the behaviour of the individual lobes, pleural compartment, chest wall and the branching structure of the first few bifurcations of airways. Results from the model are correlated with published data from ovine neonates.
