Blood Cell Aggregation and Pulmonary Embolism
The lung is the organ of the mammal in which gas exchanges between inspired air and the blood take place. When an alveolus in a living lung is viewed under magnification of 200X, air and blood appear to be the main components, and the supporting stroma is rather skimpy. Blood flows through the pulmonary microcirculation, which consists of pulmonary arterioles, capillaries, and venules.
