Adult Upper Airway Models

RDD provide a number of physical airway models which represent characteristic adult geometries of the upper tracheobronchial airways based on literature values and medical images. These models can be used to test aerosol deposition, flow field characteristics, or for the construction of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) geometries.

Pediatric Upper Airway Models

RDD provide several airway models that represent characteristic pediatric geometries of the mouth-throat and nose-throat region based on literature values and medical images. These models can be used to test aerosol deposition, flow field characteristics, or for the construction of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) geometries.

Cascade Impaction Tutorial Modules

IPAC-RS Cascade Impaction Working Group have prepared a series of educational videos which provide reference information and basic training in good cascade impactor practices, theory and practice of aerodynamic particle size testing of pharmaceutical aerosols, abbreviated impactor measurements (AIM), and efficient data analysis (EDA).
