The respiratory system is connected to the outside world by the upper airway that leads down a set of conduits before the gas-exchanging areas called the alveoli. The function of the lungs is supported by a variety of anatomic features that serve to inflate/deflate the lung, thereby allowing the transport of gases to all of the body. Supporting feathers include the chest wall, the respiratory muscles, the areas in the brain that controls the muscles, and the tracts and nerves that connect the brain to the muscles. Finally, the lung supports the pulmonary circulation, which allows for transport of gases to every living cell in the body. The first in this four lecture series on lung physiology and pharmacology will focus on the unique anatomic and cellular makeup of the respiratory system that contributes to respiratory physiology.
