Project Team: Tao Xing (PI), Gordon Murdoch (co-PI) and Rabijit Dutta (co-PI)
With support from Percussionaire Corp based in Sagle, Idaho, the team will test the new Phasitron design. They will compare the pressure and tidal volumes and the net flow entertainment under various lung conditions. They will also explore computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations of the two Phasitron devices. This project and funding grew from the Pilot Project, Multi Scale Model of Interactions Between Lung and Pulmonary Ventilation.
