Ladder model by Clark et al. In this ladder model of Clark et al.,[29] arterioles are in blue, venules in red, and capillary beds in purple. Arrows show direction of capillary blood flow. The schematic in Panel A illustrates the concept of the ladder model. This was the first computational model to include the serial and parallel capillary pathways. Panel B illustrates the ladder model implemented over a multi-branching asymmetric model of the human pulmonary acinus, from Clark et al.[32] Figure source: Reprinted from Clark et al.,[32] with permission from Elsevier; Panel A from Clark et al.,[29] used with permission.
