We present a mathematical model to analyze the distribution and transport of fluids in humans. The interest of this model is that is based on a strong physiological structure. Some classical experiments of the physiological sciences are show. We have simulated the intravenous infusion of isotonic, hypertonic and colloid solutions in a patient of average physical characteristics. In our opinion, the digital simulation, in the context of the classic techniques of distribution and transport of fluids analysis, is a supplementary teaching tool.
