Parameter Estimates and Statistical Criteria for Three Models

ParameterMean ± SEM value (n = 8) for the following model:
CompartmentSingle-capillary microvascularMulticapillary microvascular
V (mL mL−1)*0.18 ± 0.010.19 ± 0.010.19 ± 0.01
F (mL min−1 mL−1)1.3 ± 0.31.14 ± 0.14
CoV0.9 ± 0.2
AIC98 ± 693 ± 798 ± 6
  • * Volume parameter (V) is V0 for compartment model and Vb for microvascular models.

  • Mean normalized liver blood flow (F) measured by flow meters was 1.03 ± 0.12 mL min−1 mL−1.

  • Coefficient of variation (CoV) is σ/.
