Dispersion of particles in the lung is relevant to three areas: design of therapeutic aerosols and their delivery systems, risk assessment of exposure to toxic particles, and clinical diagnosis of lung function via the inhaled bolus technique. Gas dispersion is critical to optimizing alternative modes of ventilation, such as high-frequency ventilation (HFV).
