A multi-compartment model for slow bronchial clearance of insoluble particles--extension of the ICRP human respiratory tract models.

Abstract

To incorporate the various mechanisms that are presently assumed to be responsible for the experimentally observed slow bronchial clearance into the HRTM, a multi-compartment model was developed to simulate the clearance of insoluble particles in the tracheobronchial tree of the human lung. The new model considers specific mass transfer paths that may play… (More)
