      Analysis of expired air of fasting male monks at Mount Athos 

      Statheropoulos, Miltiades K.; Agapiou, Agapios; Georgiadou, A. (2006)
      Expired air chemical analysis is investigated as a search and locate method for the early detection of entrapped people under the ruins of collapsed buildings after an earthquake. Fasting individuals were examined as a ...

      Breath and sweat analysis as a tool for medical diagnostics 

      Anton, A.; Agapiou, Agapios (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Inc., 2015)
      A wide spectrum of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) is continuously produced in the human body and released through breath and sweat, thereby revealing important medical information. The variety of the analytical ...

      Direct numerical simulation of particle laden flow in a human airway bifurcation model 

      Stylianou, F. S.; Sznitman, J.; Kassinos, Stavros C. (2016)
      During the delivery of inhaled medicines, and depending on the size distribution of the particles in the formulation, airway bifurcations are areas of preferential deposition. Previous studies of laminar flow through airway ...

      Fully turbulent flow in a physiologically realistic human airway bifurcation 

      Stylianou, F. S.; Kassinos, Stavros C. (TSFP-9, 2015)
      Recent computational studies have shown that the airflow in the upper human airways is turbulent during much of the respiratory cycle. A feature of respiratory airflow that poses a challenge to computations based on ...
