While mechanical ventilation is a life-saving technique for patients with respiratory failure, including those with Covid-19 ARDS, it comes with the risk of ventilator-induced lung injury (VILI). This minisymposium focuses on modeling lung function and mechanics, especially in ventilated patients. Both forward and inverse models will be presented, ranging from modeling inflation instability for thick-walled alveoli and modeling of VILI progression to the inverse problems of determining airway resistance along the bronchial tree and diagnosis of VILI from ventilator waveform data.
