The right lung is larger than the left lung, and the left lung contains the cardiac notch, a concave impression that the heart lies against. The outer layer of the lungs are the pleura, a type of mesothelium (membrane tissue) that surrounds the lung and attaches it to the thoracic cavity. Respiratory diseases, or lung diseases, are pathological conditions affecting the organs and tissues that make gas exchange difficult in air-breathing animals. They include conditions of the respiratory tract including the trachea, bronchi, bronchioles, alveoli, pleurae, pleural cavity, and the nerves and muscles of atory diseases range from mild and self-limiting, such as.

The pulmonary pleurae (sing. pleura) are the two pleurae of the invaginated sac surrounding each lung and attaching to the thoracic visceral pleura is the delicate serous membrane that covers the surface of each lung (the lung parenchyma) and dips into the fissures between the lobes. The parietal pleura is the outer membrane which is attached to the inner surface of the thoracic cavity.

Which is not true of the lungs: a. the narrower portion of each lung is called the apex b. the bases rest on the diaphragm c. the left lung has two lobes d. the right lobe has three lobes e. both lungs . Pulmonology the branch of clinical medicine that studies diseases of the respiratory organs: the trachea, bronchi, lungs, and pleurae. Tuberculosis is studied by a separate clinical discipline, phthisiology. Modern medicine tends to integrate pulmonology and phthisiology. This has come about as a result of changes in the nature of tuberculosis, whose.

The right lung is shorter and wider than the left lung, and the left lung occupies a smaller volume than the right. The cardiac notch is an indentation on the surface of the left lung, and it allows space for the heart (Figure ).

Pleura, plural pleurae, or pleuras, membrane lining the thoracic cavity (parietal pleura) and covering the lungs (visceral pleura). The parietal pleura folds back on itself at the root of the lung to become the visceral pleura.

In health the two pleurae are in contact. When the lung collapses, however, or when air or liquid collects between the two membranes, the pleural cavity or sac becomes. Interstitial Lung Disease (ILD) Interstitial lung disease (ILD) is an umbrella term used for a large group of diseases that cause scarring (fibrosis) of the lungs.

The scarring causes stiffness in the lungs which makes it difficult to breathe and get oxygen to the bloodstream. Robert G. Carroll PhD, in Elsevier's Integrated Physiology, Pleura. Pleurae are serous membranes that separate the lungs and the wall of the thoracic cavity.

The visceral pleura covers the surface of the lungs, and the parietal pleura covers the inside of the thorax, mediastinum, and diaphragm. A thin film of serous fluid fills the space between the two pleurae. Pleural effusion is a condition in which fluid builds up between the membranes (parietal pleurae and visceral pleurae) that line the lungs and the chest cavity.

The visceral pleura envelops the lungs. The parietal pleura is the lining of the inner chest wall. About 3 to 4 teaspoons of fluid is normally present between the two types of membranes. Fig. - Posterior surface relations of the lungs and pleurae. Two of the most common of the diseases of the lungs produce changes in the shape of the thorax; they are emphysema and phthisis.

Pneumonia, though a frequent enough disease, does not produce any. The pleural cavity also known as the pleural space, is the thin fluid-filled space between the two pulmonary pleurae (known as visceral and parietal) of each lung.A pleura is a serous membrane which folds back onto itself to form a two-layered membranous pleural sac.

The outer pleura (parietal pleura) is attached to the chest wall, but is separated from it by the endothoracic fascia. On Consumption And On Certain Diseases Of The Lungs And Pleura () [Richard Douglas Powell] on *FREE* shipping on qualifying offers.

Within the thoracic cavity, the lungs are separated from the thoracic wall by the visceral and parietal pleurae. Between these two layers exists a potential space called the pleural cavity. It is clinically significant, as pathologic processes can result in fluid accumulations within this space.

The pleural cavity also maintains a negative intrapleural pressure, which resists the lungs.The lungs are located in the chest on either side of the heart in the rib are conical in shape with a narrow rounded apex at the top, and a broad concave base that rests on the convex surface of the diaphragm.

The apex of the lung extends into the root of the neck, reaching shortly above the level of the sternal end of the first lungs stretch from close to the backbone in the.Millions of people in the U.S.

The term lung disease refers to many disorders affecting the lungs, such as asthma, COPD, infections like influenza, pneumonia and tuberculosis, lung cancer, and many other breathing problems.
