Does capillary dilation in villous branches of the placenta optimise oxygen transfer?

Philip Pearce (University of Manchester)

ATB Frank Adams 1,

In this talk I'll summarise the work I've been doing this year on oxygen transfer and blood flow in the smallest capillaries of the placenta. In particular, I'll describe how mathematical modelling has helped explain the presence of localised dilations in the foetal vasculature.
