The technique of sampling exhaled air is attractive because it is noninvasive and so allows repeated sampling with ease and no risk for the patient. Knowledge of the biomarkers' origin is important to correctly understand and interpret the data. Endogenous particles, formed in the airways, are exhaled and reflect chemical composition of the respiratory tract lining fluid. However, the formation mechanisms and formation sites of these particles are unknown. We hypothesize that airway opening… Expand
Exhaled particles for monitoring of airway inflammation Sampling and analysis of endogenous particles from breath
Non-invasive collection methods suitable for studying the composition of the respiratory tract lining fluid (RTLF) in small airways are currently not readily available. The overall aim of this thesisExpand
Exhaled Particles After a Standardized Breathing Maneuver.
TLDR
The aim of the present study was to assess to what extent sex, age, body size, and spirometry results explain the interindividual variation of PEx among healthy middle-aged subjects. Expand
Exhaled particles as markers of small airway inflammation in subjects with asthma
TLDR
The amount of exhaled particles was reduced after Birch pollen exposure in subjects with asthma and birch pollen allergy, but no significant effect on the concentrations of surfactant protein A and albumin in exhale particles was found. Expand
Characterization of exhaled particles from the human lungs in airway obstruction.
TLDR
The high intersubject variability of particle emission supports the concept of online determination of aerosol properties (primarily number flux, during exhaled breath) during breath condensate sampling to properly normalize the results of biochemical analysis. Expand
The effect of exhalation flow on endogenous particle emission and phospholipid composition
TLDR
Comparing breathing manoeuvres found that forced exhalation and airway re-opening manoeuvres generate particles from different airway regions having different DPPC concentration. Expand
Effects of breath holding at low and high lung volumes on amount of exhaled particles
TLDR
The aim here was to explore processes that control exhaled particle concentrations and it is shown that 5 and 10s breath holding at residual volume increased the median concentration of particles in exhaled air by 63% and 110%, respectively, averaged over 10 subjects. Expand
Exhaled Particles After a Standardized Breathing Maneuver.
TLDR
Assessment of to what extent sex, age, body size, and spirometry results explain the interindividual variation of PEx among healthy middle-aged subjects found it to be large. Expand
On the Formation and Physical Behaviour of Exhaled Particles
Aerosol particles are generated in human airways and leave the body with exhaled air. The particles originate from the respiratory tract and contain non-volatile compounds that potentially may beExpand
Exhaled particles and small airways
TLDR
The physical properties and content of exhaled particles generated by the airway reopening mechanism offers an exciting noninvasive way to obtain samples from the respiratory tract lining fluid of small airways. Expand
Relation between humidity and size of exhaled particles.
TLDR
It is concluded that the particles are supersaturated liquid particles, rather than crystalline solids, in ambient air with RH below 75%, which should accommodate the size distribution predicted at 99.5% RH. Expand

Airway monitoring by collection and mass spectrometric analysis of exhaled particles.
TLDR
A new method for simultaneously collecting particles in exhaled air for subsequent chemical analysis and measuring their size distribution is described, which has a high potential to detect new biomarkers in exhale air. Expand
Inhaling to mitigate exhaled bioaerosols.
TLDR
It is hypothesized that, by altering lung airway surface properties through an inhaled nontoxic aerosol, this work might substantially diminish the number of exhaled bioaerosol droplets and thereby provide a simple means to potentially mitigate the spread of airborne infectious disease independently of the identity of the airborne pathogen or the nature of any specific therapy.

TLDR
C coughing produced the largest droplet concentrations and nose breathing the least, although considerable intersubject variability was observed, and the existence of larger sized droplets in the exhaled breath was confirmed. Expand
The mechanism of breath aerosol formation.
TLDR
The observed asymmetry of production in the breathing cycle with very little aerosol being produced by exhalation is inconsistent with the widely assumed turbulence-induced aerosolization mechanism. Expand

Conductive airway surfactant: surface-tension function, biochemical composition, and possible alveolar origin.
TLDR
As compared with alveolar surfactant, PL of SurfTrachAsp show the same composition, but that surface-tension function is impaired and the concentration of surfactants proteins is decreased in Surf tracheal aspirates. Expand
Significance of the relationship between lung recoil and maximum expiratory flow.
TLDR
A theoretical relationship between the static recoil of lungs and the maximum rate at which gas can be expelled from them is developed and the configuration of maximum expiratory flow-volume curves are found. Expand

TLDR
Modified single breath nitrogen test is suitable for use as a screening test and in epidemiologic studies because it does not require equipment that is either extremely costly or technically difficult to operate and it can be used to compute total lung capacity. Expand
Airway closure as a function of age.
TLDR
Alveolar P an 2 tracings were examined after VC inspirations of O2 in subjects aged 7–50, and children showed evidence for airway closure at the same lung volume as adults aged 20–29 and very flat plateaux with damped cardiogenic oscillations. Expand
