Calculated deposition of inhaled particles in the airway generations of normal subjects.

Detailed regional deposition of inhaled particles in the human lung is calculated for individual airway generations. The calculations are based on Landahl's deposition model as applied to the morphometric lung model of Weibel. We consider primarily deposition patterns of iron oxide particles with diameters ranging between 1 and 10 micrometers, but we also… CONTINUE READING
