Example text

Since human bronchial airways are larger than those in small animals, turbulent fiow is more likely to occur. Further, small animals have a trachea that is much longer in relation to its diameter than is the human trachea (Figure 10). Thus, turbulence introduced by the larynx is less likely to persist into the bronchi in these species [4]. A number of studies have examined the regional deposition of inhaled particles in particular species. Making inter-species comparisons by comparing data from different studies is problematic since the characteristics of aerosols, delivery techniques and definitions of respiratory Human Guinea pig Figure 10.
