New method for imaging exhaled breath could provide insights into COVID-19 transmission

The new imaging technique has been used to capture the exhaled breath of a person speaking. This is a demonstration of the published imaging technique that is being further investigated. The imaging shows only the temperature change associated with exhaled breath, which does not necessarily reflect the movement of viral particles contained in the breath. […]

Baby’s first breath triggers life-saving changes in the brain — ScienceDaily

There are few moments in life as precious, as critical and as celebrated as baby’s first breath. New research from the University of Virginia School of Medicine sheds light on the lifelong changes in breathing systems that occur precisely with that first breath — and may offer important insights into Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS).
