Influence of Insoluble Aerosol Deposits on the Surface Activity of the Pulmonary Surfactant: A Possible Mechanism of Alveolar Clearance Retardation?
Pulmonary surfactant is believed to be involved in the alveolar clearance both due to its direct influence on the flow of the liquid alveolar hypophase and due to the stimulating effect on theExpand

Aerosolized albuterol sulfate delivery under neonatal ventilatory conditions: in vitro evaluation of a novel ventilator circuit patient interface connector.
BACKGROUND Aerosolized medications that have been used in infants receiving ventilatory support have not been shown to be effective clinically among the smallest patients. The aim of this study wasExpand

Deposition of Fractal-Like Aerosol Aggregates in a Model of Human Nasal Cavity
Toxicity of diesel exhaust is related to the inhalation of nano-sized fractal-like aerosol aggregates. Their complex behavior (in comparison to spherical particles) should be taken into account inExpand
