Abstract Clinical investigation shows a dramatic relation between deposition of particles in lung’s pathways and respiratory system diseases. Particle deposition may also play a major role in drug delivery via respiratory system. Previous researches on symmetric and 5-lobe models for rat, dog, hamster and human show that, the deposition fraction of fine particles (between 0.1 and 0.7 μm) is minimum. A multi-path asymmetric 5-lobe model of Horsfield et al. is employed to construct the airway… CONTINUE READING
