The Lung

  • Jeffrey E. Weiland
  • James E. Gadek


The respiratory tract is unique in its dual role in the maintenance of health and prevention of disease. In addition to its function in gas exchange, the respiratory tract serves an important role in the body’s first line of defense against environmental pollutants. Each day the lung is exposed to approximately 10,000 L of air containing large amounts of particulate matter and noxious gases. The manner in which the lung handles this burden influences the toxic injury it sustains and, to a great extent, the health of the entire body (54, 75, 131, 152).
