Fatal Anaphylaxis with Fulminant Pulmonary Edema - Medical Illustration, Human Anatomy Drawing
This stock medical exhibit depicts fatal anaphylaxis with fulminant pulmonary edema. It begins with an anterior view of the head and torso with the brain, heart and lungs visible. The normal path of air in through the nose, into the lungs, and through the blood stream to the brain is outlined. An inset describes normal gas exchange within the alveoli of the lungs. Next, the same basic view is used to show the path of air in this case. The lungs and brain are dark in this image, to show tissue damage due to the fluid in the lungs impeding gas exchange within the alveoli.
