The relationships of aerosol deposition, lung size, and the rate of mucociliary clearance.

Abstract

Although the effect of deposition pattern of an inhaled aerosol upon subsequent mucociliary clearance is well recognized, the influence of lung size on the rate of clearance has not been clearly defined. To examine the relationships of lung size in terms of the forced vital capacity (FVC) and aerosol deposition pattern to the rate of mucociliary clearance… (More)
