Narrow airways: The straw represents narrow air passages.Get a more detailed answer ›
Deoxygenated blood enters the lungs from the right side of the heart and travels to the lungs. When you inspire, oxygen flows into the lungs, transverses the capilliares and attaches to hemoglobin down a gradient. At the same time, co2 diffuses into the capilaries and is expelled with exhalation. Oxygen rich blood then flows to the left side of the heart and into the ...Read more
Airflow resistance: Think of the lungs as a giant balloon. The critical point in the system is the neck of the balloon. The narrower the neck, the harder it is for air to flow in and out. In chronic obstructive lung disease the bronchial tubes are narrower due to mucous, swelling, inflammation and sometimes loss of support structures. The straw analogy relates to the airflow limitation through smaller tubes/airways. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I was diagnosed with a chronic lung disease at age 10 and needed a transplant. Is it true that it can be hard to find lungs because of size?

The basic concept is that the baby is born premature and requires some form of respiratory support (oxygen, CPAP, mechanical ventilation) at one month of age or beyond 36 weeks corrected gestational age. Chronic lung disease outside of this definition is a less defined phenomenon. ...Read more

Not alwasy: The more inefficient the damaged lung becomes at eliminating co2 the more you have to work to breath and the more work the more co2 you make. Once co2 is up for a period of time your body stops responding to theco2 &switches to o2 for the drive. Thus co2 rises even more as the body stops response to co2. This makes o2 dangerous to use. Most COPD get no rise in co2. You need a blood test to know. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
