“EXHALATION” This story has two very different inspirations. The first was a short
story by Philip K. Dick called “The Electric Ant,” which I read as a teenager. In it
the protagonist goes to a doctor for a routine visit and is told, to his utter surprise,

He measured radon exhalation from two blocks -- one with low ( 2 to 4 % by
weight ) and one with a higher ( 6-8 % ) moisture content . The moisture content
was determined from the mass difference between the " moist " blocks and after ...

Table 1 – Radon exhalation rate from granite stones ( rate , 0.5 Bq m'h ' ) , action
level obtained ( 1080 Bq m- ? ) for 24 h is higher than 1000 Bq m- proposed by
AEO of Iran . Hence , it is better not to use granite stones in dwellings .
A whistling sound produced during exhalation is often an indication that the
patient is not exhaling in a passive manner . The force generated by blowing
increases the transpulmonary pressure , which contributes to the collapse of
