Find the cardiac output of a heart using Fick's method given that the concentration of oxygen in the pulmonary artery is 14mL/100 mL (Cin) and in the vein is 20 mL/100 mL (Cout). Oxygen uptake (U) by the lungs is 300 mL/min. Assume that blood flows at a constant rate Q mL/min (the cardiac output).© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com February 24, 2021, 2:05 pm ad1c9bdddf
The cardiac output of a heart using Fick's method is demonstrated. The blood flows at a constant rate for the oxygen uptake by the lungs are examined.
