Bioaerosol production by patients with tuberculosis during normal tidal breathing: implications for transmission risk.

Abstract

BACKGROUND The size and concentration of exhaled bioaerosols may influence TB transmission risk. This study piloted bioaerosol measurement in patients with TB and assessed variability in bioaerosol production during normal tidal breathing. Understanding this may provide a tool for assessing heterogeneity in infectivity and may inform mathematical models of… (More)
