Microaerosols: Physiology, Pharmacology, Therapeutics presents a summary of the experimental and technical data on aerosols. This book focuses on the production, measurement, sampling, and biological importance of submicroscopic and submicronic air-borne particles and to their pharmacological, therapeutic, and physiological effects after their deposition in the respiratory tract. Organized into 22 chapters, this book begins with an overview of the process of obligatory liquid filtration. This text then examines the factors that affect the sizing and numbering of aerosols, including the duration of the aerosol dispersion into a closed space, the duration of aerosol sampling, and the location of the particles. Other chapters consider the authenticity of the penetration of aerosols into the pulmonary depths. This book discusses as well the recommendations for preparations of airway dilating solutions. The final chapter deals with the effects on the lungs of airway constricting substances dispersed in aerosols. This book is a valuable resource for physicians.
