Abstract

Aerosol measurements were recently made in a therapy cave in Budapest, Hungary. Based on the measured size distribution of the aerosol particles in the atmosphere of the cave, attempts were made to measure the size distribution of the aerosol particles as well as the potential health effects of inhaled aerosols. By the computation of the inspiratory local deposition patterns, strong local inhomogeneities were found in the vicinity of the carinal ridge of the airway bifurcations, even in the deep regions of the lung.
