Ventilation Perfusion Matching
By 3Dme Pty Ltd
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
For gas exchange to be efficient there must be a close match of ventilation & perfusion in the lungs. This App contains a 3D video which offers an overview of the process of ventilation perfusion matching, using beautiful, scientifically accurate 3D visualisation & digital story-telling. We take a look inside the human body to follow the path of air breathed in, right down to the alveolar capillaries, to see what occurs to the partial pressure of oxygen (PO2) & the partial pressure of carbon dioxide (PCO2) when ventilation is low or high relative to perfusion.
This 3Dme App has primarily been produced for undergraduate medical, physiotherapy, health science, nursing, pharmacology, exercise science & veterinary science students to assist their understanding of this fundamental curriculum-based topic. It is one of the core concepts which the student needs to understand if they are to successfully understand subsequent respiratory physiology concepts. This App is also suitable for the university lecturer who could “airplay” the video to their students, followed by a discussion on the Q & A. They may also choose to use the Q & A to examine their student’s level of understanding. This 3Dme App will also appeal to health professional graduates working in the field of respiratory physiology who may like to refresh their memory on the fundamentals of respiratory physiology. Additionally, a portion of proceeds from the sale of each App will be returned to Griffith University to fund ongoing innovative teaching & learning initiatives.

What's New in Version 1.2
This update has specifically been designed for the iPad user, offering an enhanced user experience.
This update is optional for iPhone users.
Accurate Respiratory Physiology
Beautiful, engaging, yet physiologically accurate visuals to explain a fundamental concept which must be understood so students can comprehend more complex respiratory physiology. At only 99cents, highly recommended for 1st year medical, physio, nursing, health science and pharmacology undergraduate students. btw, the video in this App won a NY Global Award.
All that glitters...
This app is a 6 min video with no interactive element. The narration is barely audible over the new age music background. Any quality of the information is thus lost. I do not recommend the purchase of this app. Lose the soundtrack or at least give the option to turn it off.
Filled my gap
This concept was bugging me heaps, and is not clear in many physiology texts. Now it's clear. Thank you
