Anatomía de los pulmones

Después de que se inhala el aire por la nariz o por la boca, éste viaja por la tráquea hacia los bronquios principales, en donde se introduce al pulmón. De los bronquios principales, el aire pasa a los bronquios secundarios, de ahí, a los bronquiolos y, finalmente, a los alvéolos.
