Aerosol deposition in human subjects.
New York University Medical Center, Institute of Environmental Medicine, New York, New York 1977 Jan; :1-5
Terminal progress report of a project on aerosol deposition in human subjects. The goals of the project are to continue and expand the then current aerosol inhalation studies on normal subjects and miners at the Appalachian Laboratory for Occupational Respiratory Diseases (ALFORD) in Morgantown, West Virginia, and to develop at the New York University apparatus and procedures for measuring steady state deposition of monodisperse aerosols in human subjects. A steady state aerosol deposition device is described with details of a bolus technique. Under steady state conditions, the total flow through the aerosol inhalation system times the aerosol concentration reduction would give quantity deposited per unit time. The research activities at ALFORD and New York University are described. (Grant No. R01-OH-00396)
