Main Completed Research Projects

1. A series of experiments to study the physical properties of air-dispersing systems were done. In particular, research on the dynamics of the distribution of dry salt aerosol in rooms. Major factors affecting the lifetime of dry salt aerosol were identified. The specific features of generation and distribution of the respirable fraction of dry salt aerosol in limited quantities were assessed. The electrical characteristics of various aerosol environments were tested. The dependence of the dynamics of dry salt aerosol on temperature and moisture characteristics of an environment was discovered. These and some other experiments and research laid down the basis for the development of the behavioral algorithm of salt aerosol inside the rooms and the developing of a new generation of technical tools for controlled halotherapy.
Jointly with The St. Petersburg State Medical University named after Acad. I. Pavlov and The St. Petersburg State University of Aerospace Instrumentation.

2. The mechanisms for the therapeutic and preemptive impact of controlled halotherapy were defined in terms of a comprehensive assessment of the impact of sodium chloride dry fine aerosol on defense mechanisms in the respiratory tract. The clinical and pathogenic rationale of the influence of sodium chloride aerosol dry fine on bronchial patency was produced.
Jointly with St. Petersburg State Medical University named after Acad. I. Pavlov, Institute of Pulmonology, FMBA of Russia (Moscow), Institute of Childhood Infections, FMBA of Russia, Clinical Hospital № 122 named after L. Sokolov, FMBA of Russia.

3. The impact of sodium chloride dry fine aerosol on the properties of microorganisms and physiological properties of the epithelium in the experiment was examined.
Jointly with the Institute for Childhood Infections, FMBA of Russia, Clinical Hospital № 122 named after L. Sokolov, FMBA of Russia.

4. A differential approach and methodological basis for the prescription of various concentrations of sodium chloride dry salt aerosol, depending on clinical and functional parameters was developed. Recommendations and contraindications, some particulars for the application of the method application for rehabilitation and prevention purposes were elaborated.
