Lung airways

Lung airways. Computer-enhanced image of a resin cast of the airways in the lungs. The trachea (windpipe, top centre) divides into two main bronchi. These branch further into smaller bronchi and then bronchioles. The bronchioles terminate in alveoli (not seen), grape-like clusters of air sacs surrounded by blood vessels. Here, the blood takes up oxygen and releases carbon dioxide to be exhaled

Airway Airways Branched Branching Bronchi Bronchiole Bronchioles Bronchus Lung Lungs Resin Cast Respiratory System Trachea Wind Pipe


EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases the intricate network of lung airways within the human body. Through computer-enhancement, a resin cast of these airways has been beautifully captured, revealing their branching and branched structure. At the top center lies the trachea, also known as the windpipe, which divides into two main bronchi. These bronchi then further branch out into smaller bronchi and eventually lead to delicate structures called bronchioles. Although not visible in this image, at the end of these bronchioles lie alveoli - grape-like clusters of air sacs surrounded by blood vessels. It is within these tiny sacs that an extraordinary exchange takes place: oxygen from inhaled air diffuses through thin walls into surrounding blood vessels while carbon dioxide is released for exhalation. The respiratory system relies on this complex arrangement to ensure efficient gas exchange between our lungs and bloodstream. This image serves as a reminder of how intricately designed our bodies are to support vital functions like breathing. Captured with vibrant colors and incredible detail by Science Photo Library, this print offers a glimpse into one aspect of human anatomy that often goes unnoticed but plays a crucial role in sustaining life itself.
