Describe this image from the lung

Q image thumb

Lung lymphatics

  • white lines under shiny visceral surface
  • channel lymph toward hilum and to mediastinal lymph nodes
  • carbon (turns black) within visceral pleural lymphatic channels

A image thumb
7

What layer of pleura covers the lung

Visceral pleura

8

What is the layer of pleura against chest wall

Parietal pleura

9

What is the cellular composition of the pleura

  • single layer of mesothelial cells

 

  • mesothelial cells are a form of simple squamous epithelium

 

10

pleural cavity

Space between parietal and visceral layers of lungs = pleural cavity;

should not have anything between these layers except for a small amount of lubricating fluid

11

hemothorax

collection of blood in the space between the chest wall and the lung (the pleural cavity)

12

pneumothorax

collection of air in the space between the chest wall and the lung (the pleural cavity)

13

What is the result if there is a tear/puncture in the parietal pleura

AFFERENT NERVE: intercostal and phrenic

RESULT: GSA pain

A image thumb
14

What is the result if there is a tear/puncture in the visceral pleura

AFFERENT NERVE: vagus and sympathetics

RESULT: little/no pain

 

Gray's: visceral pleura is innervated by visceral afferent nerves that accompany bronchial vessels, pain is generally not elicited from this tissue

A image thumb
15

What nerve senses everything but tear/puncture in the lung

the vagus nerve (CN X - cranial nerve 10)

 

A image thumb
16

Location of vagus nerve in the lung

vagus nerve runs posterior to hilum of lung

A image thumb
17

Location and function of phrenic nerve in the lung 

Phrenic nerve (C3-C5) runs anterior to hilum of lung;

Phrenic nerves carry motor (GSE) fibers to diaphragm

18

hilum

also known as the root of the lung;

formed by bronchus, pulmonary artery, pulmonary vein, bronchial artiers/veins, pulmonary plexus of nerves, lymphatic vessels, bronchial lymph glands, and areolar tissue

hilum is also where the viseral and parietal pleura meet

19

Order of arteries/bronchus/veins in hilum of lung (Left/Right)

LEFT: (Are Brides Vain)

  • Artery, Bronchus, Vein

RIGHT: (Bride Are Vain)

  • Bronchus, Artery, Vein

20

Where do the visceral and parietal pleura meet (reflection of the pleura)

root of the lung (hilum)

21

Pulmonary arteries

Carry deoxygenated blood away from the heart to the lungs (where blood gets oxygenated)

 

NB: these arteries do not "supply" the lungs -- the material they carry is not beneficial; lungs are supplied by bronchial arteries/intercostal arteries (aorta) or subclavian arteries

A image thumb
22

Pulmonary veins

carry oxygenated blood from the lungs back to the heart; blood enters at left atrium, flows to left ventricle where it will be circulated (aorta)

25

What blood vessels supply the lungs

  • intercostal arteries (from aorta)
  • subclavian arteries

 

NB: These are nutrient arteries that supply oxygenated blood to lung tissue; they enter at the hilum

26

How are capillaries formed

Pulmonary arteries follow bronchial trees to form capillaries around alveoli; pulmonary arteries carry deoxygenated blood
