The project aims to refine the model of exergy analysis of the respiratory system taking into account one more variable, carbon monoxide. Will be used models already validated of the respiratory and thermal. The effect of carbon monoxide in the destroyed exergy (entropy generated) and the exergetic efficiency of the respiratory system will be evaluated.
