Anatomy of the Lungs
The Lungs bring fresh oxygen into our bodies and
remove carbon dioxide and other gaseous waste products. The respiratory
system is mainly comprised of two lungs made up of many parts. The right
lung is made up of three compartments, each of which contain a branch
which hold the air sacs that process the oxygen to be released into the
blood and expel carbon dioxide, which is exhaled through the nose and
mouth. The left lung contains two sections and encloses the heart. As we
breathe air in, we use the diaphragm to pull air into our lungs. As we
breathe air in, the diaphragm contracts, allowing air to be sucked into
the lungs. The diaphragm and the rib cage muscles relax and air is
Why do we breathe?
Our lungs bring fresh oxygen into our bodies and
remove carbon dioxide and other gaseous waste products. The body is made
up of tiny cells, each of which has a special job that keeps us alive.
Every cell in the body needs oxygen that allows the cells to get energy
from the food we eat. Carbon dioxide, a very dangerous gas is a waste
product of the cells. The blood carries the carbon dioxide from the cells
to the lungs to be expelled.
How do we breathe?
Air, which is inhaled through the mouth and nasal
passages, travels through the trachea into two main air passages
(bronchial tubes). These tubes divide into smaller and smaller branches,
ending by little sacs called alveoli arranged in clusters like bunches of
balloons, where the blood in the tiny vessels meet the air and pick up the
oxygen and get rid of carbon dioxide produced by cells.
Defense mechanisms of lungs
Healthy lungs have effective ways to keep clean.
Mucus in the airways traps dirt and foreign particles. Little hairs called
cilia beat back and forth in the airways to move the mucus and dirt up
where it can be expelled by coughing. There are also special cells in the
airways called macrophages, mobile cells that eat up toxins in the airways
and lungs. Smoking destroys all these defenses.
How does smoking affect our lungs?
Smoking is harmful to our bodies in many ways, but
it is the most harmful to the lungs. Smoke from cigarettes contains tar,
which sticks to the cilia in our lungs. The cilia usually act like little
brooms to sweep out harmful dirt, but when you smoke cigarettes, the cilia
can't work because they're covered in sticky tar. That means that dirt can
stay in the lungs and cause problems.
- Chronic Bronchitis is an inflammation of the
bronchi which causes excessive production of mucus and swelling of
bronchial walls. Chronic bronchitis is caused mainly by cigarette smoke
and is characterized by a persistent cough and excessive production of
- Emphysema is a chronic lung disease that affects
the alveoli and the ends of the smallest bronchi. The lungs lose their
elasticity and therefore these areas of the lungs become enlarged. There
is difficulty in breathing and insufficient oxygen being delivered to
the blood. The predominant symptom in patients with emphysema is
shortness of breath.
- Asthma is a disease of the respiratory system.
People who have asthma sometimes have trouble breathing. When people who
have asthma have this trouble breathing, we call it an asthma attack.
