About This Simulation

Join us to follow the flow of air through the complete respiratory system. In this simulation, you will learn about the anatomy of the respiratory system and its major functions. You'll be introduced to the respiratory tract and pleurae and get to assemble the lobes of the lungs and bronchial tree on our live anatomy model. Help! The anatomy model keeps falling apart After getting introduced to the upper respiratory tract, watch as the rest of our anatomy model's respiratory tract falls apart before your eyes! Regenerate the lower respiratory tract one piece at a time to see how the bronchial tree branches all the way from the trachea down to the alveoli. See if you can distinguish between the upper and lower respiratory tracts by answering our quizzes and riddles. Reassemble the lobes of the lungs It happened again! Watch as the lobes of the lungs of our model fall apart. Piece the lungs together again to discover the difference in lobular structure between the right and left lung. Puncture the pleurae of the lungs After reassembling the bronchial tree, lungs and looking closer at the pleurae, you get to puncture the pleurae of our anatomy model to demonstrate their function. Watch the air escape the lung and leave it deflated. Are you ready? Take our breath away!
