Sites of deposition of aqueous aerosols: a study of efficiency of delivery systems for lung ventilation imaging in man.

Abstract:

A study was made of the deposition of 99Tcm-DTPA aerosol in the components of a jet nebulizer-based aerosol production system. Three impaction devices were compared: a ball-bearing separator, a virtual impactor and a step separator. In addition a comparison was made of two types of tubing which carried aerosol from nebulizer to mouthpiece: corrugated and smooth-walled tubing. The retention of aerosol following inhalation was measured in five normal volunteers using different patterns of breat...
