Several inhalability curves for nose breathing in humans have been developed. No studies have been designed specifically to develop inhalability functions for animals, although it has been shown that pulmonary deposition of large particles (> 4-5 microns) via inhalation is minimal in laboratory animals [Raabe et al., Inhaled Particles VI, pp. 53-63. Pergamon Press, Oxford (1988)]. The logistic function was fitted to these animal deposition data of Raabe et al. (1988) to estimate an inhalability… CONTINUE READING
