Exhaled breath is a rich and complex matrix containing many hundreds of compounds. Every breath offers the potential of a non-invasive measurement of the biochemical processes occurring in the human body and it is this notion that has led to the application of breath analysis for the detection of disease. With the majority of research in the field being focused on the detection of biomarkers, little has been presented on how the seemingly homeostatic matrix of breath varies during the course of normal life events. The research in this thesis describes how a subject's emotional state, physical state, and daily activities can alter the composition of exhaled breath.
