Calculated regional deposition in percentage of total deposition of 6μm particles (Dae) inhaled with extremely slow inhalation flow (0.05 L/s) in ten healthy controls □ and six subjects with PCD ■ in large airways (BB, generations 0–8), small airways (bb, generations 9–15) and alveolar region (alv, generations 16–23) according to the airway model proposed by Weibel 14. For comparison 3 PCD subjects inhaled 6μm particles with normal inhalation flow (0.5 L/s) .
