Inflating a set of cat lungs

Lungs are by most accounts mundane. Everybody has them, few give it much thought. But sequestered within darkness of the chest cavity, enveloping the fluttering heart, there’s a incredible wonder to this oddly inflatable organ.

Dissection is a destructive process. Rudely excised from membranous mooring and nourishing vessels, the deflated lungs appear little more than bloodied meat; amorphous and exposed…….until a breath of air unfurls its secret glory. 

Here, a set of cat lungs is inflated with a straw. Comprised of hundreds of millions of microscopic air sacks called aveoli, Mammalian lungs harbor air capacity that is difficult to believe unless seen. The color of the entire organ lightens into a soft pink, as each microscopic sac fills with air.

A debt of gratitude is owed to cyborgraptor for her assistance in creating these gifs, as well as the students that help me film this demo.

Flooding under control — for now: Second surge feared as Calgary becomes watery ghost town
Calgary Mayor Naheed Nenshi says water levels on the Elbow River, one of two rivers that flow through the southern Alberta city, has crested. “We have peaked and we have seen a slow decrease,” Nenshi told a news conference Friday morning.

“That doesn’t mean there won’t be another peak as surge waters come, but it does mean today, at this moment, we’re slowly seeing the numbers go down.” (Photos: National Post; Calgary Herald; Canadian Press)
