Characterization of Aerosol Deposition in Children and Infants Using Idealized Extrathoracic GeometriesDownload
This thesis describes a number of experimental studies performed with the common goal of characterizing pharmaceutical aerosol deposition in children and infants using idealized extrathoracic geometries. First, an in vitro study of the recently proposed Alberta Idealized Child Throat showed that...
Infant face and throat replicas are used in research laboratories to compare the effectiveness of different valved holding chamber and face mask designs. The use of soft face models is thought to provide a better representation of mask dead volume and face mask seal than hard face models....
Measurements of Total Aerosol Deposition and Validation of Airway Resistance Models in Anatomically Realistic Intrathoracic Conducting Airway Replicas of ChildrenDownload
One objective of this research was to obtain a correlation that quantitatively predicts micrometer-sized aerosol particle deposition in the upper conducting airways (trachea to generation 3) of children. Experiments were conducted using steady inhalation air flow rates to measure the deposition...
