Pneumonia and Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) - Medical Illustration, Human Anatomy Drawing
Pneumonia and Adult Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS). Shows lungs within the chest, identifying the terminal alveoli where the disease begins. Subsequent graphics show progression of ARDS: 1. Normal anatomy of the alveoli with normal gas exchange; 2. Pneumonia with thickening of the alveolar wall and accumulation of mucus within the alveolar sac; 3. Pneumonia and ARDS showing final disruption of gas exchange due to foreign fluid.
