Abstract

Clearance from the extrathoracic (ET) airways was measured in nine volunteers for up to five days following inhalation of 3 μm aerodynamic diameter particles. An initial assessment of the implications of the results for dose assessment, and a discussion of the potential nose blow sampling for internal dose monitoring, are given.
