Abstract
The portion of the respiratory system that may be affected by pollutant gases or particles will be determined by a number of factors: the concentration, physical and chemical properties of the pollutants, the pattern of breathing (fast or slow, by nose or mouth, large or shallow breaths), and even the presence or absence of pulmonary disease. Within a diseased lung the structural and functional abnormalities tend to be unevenly distributed. Consequently, the exposure of such a lung to pollutants is also likely to be uneven.
