Pressure wave oscillations are used in the treatment of several respiratory ailments such respiratory distress syndrome. A theoretical model and experimental approach are used to quantify the level of delivery of air pressure oscillations applied at the mouth to various parts of the lung. Both approaches indicate that these oscillations can be delivered with specific frequencies and magnitudes deep in the lung and under specific operating conditions.
