    An in vitro experiment on the dissolved oxygen transport during liquid ventilation by means of measuring global oxygen concentration fields is presented within this work. We consider the flow in an idealized four generation model of the human airways in a range of peak Reynolds numbers of [Formula: see text]-3400 and Womersley numbers of [Formula: see text]-5. Fluorescence quenching measurements were employed in order to visualize and quantify the oxygen distribution with high temporal and spatial resolution during the breathing cycle. Measurements with varying tidal volumes and oscillating frequencies reveal short living times of characteristic concentration patterns for all parameter variations. Similarities to typical velocity patterns in similar lung models persist only in early phases during each cycle. Concentration gradients are quickly homogenized by secondary motions within the lung model. A strong dependency of peak oxygen concentration on tidal volume is observed with considerably higher relative concentrations for higher tidal volumes. © 2022. The Author(s).
