Abstract
The self cleansing system of the upper respiratory tract - the mucociliary clearance - is a constant stream of mucilage propelled towards the oral structures by the waving of fine cilia. The importance and measurement of clearance is shown, together with measuring the rate of clearance using a new method on rabbit trachea. The effects of drugs (Ozothin) and pollution (smoking) on clearance.
