Human breath contains a myriad of endogenous volatile organic compounds (VOCs) which are reflective of ongoing metabolic or physiological processes. While research into the diagnostic potential and general medical relevance of these trace gases is conducted on a considerable scale, little focus has been given so far to a sound analysis of the quantitative relationships between breath levels and the underlying systemic concentrations. This paper is devoted to a thorough modeling study of the end… 
Reproducibility and verification of real time breath VOCs concentration data by modeling
Human breath contains over 200 volatile organic compounds (VOCs), appearing as result of normal metabolic activity or pathological disorders. These molecular species can be detected and quantified in
Physiological modeling of exhaled compounds
Abstract Blood flow and ventilatory flow strongly influence the concentrations of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in exhaled breath. The physicochemical properties of a compound (e.g., water
The role of mathematical modeling in VOC analysis using isoprene as a prototypic example.
Isoprene is one of the most abundant endogenous volatile organic compounds (VOCs) contained in human breath and is considered to be a potentially useful biomarker for diagnostic and monitoring
A modeling-based evaluation of isothermal rebreathing for breath gas analyses of highly soluble volatile organic compounds.
Isothermal rebreathing has been proposed as an experimental technique for estimating the alveolar levels of hydrophilic volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in exhaled breath. Using the prototypic test
Physiological Modeling for Analysis of Exhaled Breath 1
Due to its broad scope and applicability, breath gas analysis holds great promise as a versatile framework for general bio-monitoring applications. As a biochemical probe, volatile organic compounds
Breath isoprene: muscle dystrophy patients support the concept of a pool of isoprene in the periphery of the human body.
Breath isoprene accounts for most of the hydrocarbon removal via exhalation and is thought to serve as a non-invasive indicator for assaying several metabolic effects in the human body. The primary

Isoprene and acetone concentration profiles during exercise on an ergometer.
TLDR
Data appear to favor the hypothesis that short-term effects visible in breath isoprene levels are mainly caused by changes in pulmonary gas exchange patterns rather than fluctuations in endogenous synthesis, and hold great potential in capturing continuous dynamics of non-polar, low-soluble VOCs over a wide measurement range.
Human breath isoprene and its relation to blood cholesterol levels: new measurements and modeling.
TLDR
It is shown that breath isoprene concentration increases within a few seconds after exercise is started as a result of a rapid increase in heart rate and then reaches a lower steady state when breath rate stabilizes, and reaffirms the possibility that breath hasoprene can be a noninvasive marker of cholesterologenesis if care is taken to measure it under standard conditions at constant heart rate.
Dynamic profiles of volatile organic compounds in exhaled breath as determined by a coupled PTR-MS/GC-MS study.
TLDR
These investigations aim at evaluating the impact of breathing patterns, cardiac output or blood pressure on the observed breath concentration and allow for the detection and identification of several VOCs revealing characteristic rest-to-work transitions in response to variations in ventilation or perfusion.
A mathematical model for breath gas analysis of volatile organic compounds with special emphasis on acetone
TLDR
The chief intention of the present modeling study is to provide mechanistic relationships for further investigating the exhalation kinetics of acetone and other water-soluble species, and is a first step towards new guidelines for breath gas analyses of volatile organic compounds, similar to those for nitric oxide.
Potential applications of breath isoprene as a biomarker in modern medicine: a concise overview
TLDR
Breath isoprene measurements could potentially be used for mass screening for lipid disorders and could, at minimum, serve as an additional parameter to complement invasive tests for monitoring the efficacy of lipid-lowering therapy, pharmacological and dietary or lifestyle.
A human physiological model describing acetone kinetics in blood and breath during various levels of physical exercise.
TLDR
The developed model is to the authors' knowledge the first which explains the toxicokinetics of acetone at such various levels of physical exercise and may be useful in breath monitoring and to obtain more accurate estimates of absorbed dose during inhalation of polar volatiles.
Volatile Alkanes and Increased Concentrations of Isoprene in Exhaled Air during Hemodialysis
TLDR
Patients in hemodialysis offer a unique opportunity to investigate in depth the medical, biological and toxicological aspects of isoprene, an unsaturated hydrocarbon the biosynthesis and biological effects of which are the subject of controversy and mounting interest.
Analysis of volatile organic compounds: possible applications in metabolic disorders and cancer screening.
TLDR
Breath isoprene reductions during lipid-lowering therapy were shown to correlate with cholesterol and LDL concentrations in blood and Mass-108, which presumably represents o-toluidine in breath samples, appears to be a currently underestimated carcinoma marker that deserves further investigation.
Diagnostic potential of breath analysis--focus on volatile organic compounds.
TLDR
Basic principles of breath analysis and the diagnostic potential of different volatile breath markers are addressed and issues concerning biochemistry and exhalation mechanisms of volatile substances, and future developments will be discussed.
Analysis of volatile disease markers in blood.
TLDR
The SPME method can detect volatile substances in very low concentrations in the blood of humans and animals and analysis of volatile substancesIn vascular compartments will enlarge the diagnostic potential of breath analysis.
