Lung (C0024109)

Definition (FMA) Lobular organ which has as its parts alveoli connected to the tracheobronchial tree. Examples: There are only two instances, right lung and left lung.
Definition (MSHCZE) Jeden z dvojice párových orgánů umístěných v dutině hrudní, který se podílí na okysličování krve.
Definition (UWDA) Lobular organ the parenchyma of which consists of air-filled alveoli which communicate with the tracheobronchial tree. Examples: There are only two instances, right lung and left lung.
Definition (NCI_CDISC) One of a pair of viscera occupying the pulmonary cavities of the thorax, the organs of respiration in which aeration of the blood takes place. As a rule, the right lung is slightly larger than the left and is divided into three lobes (an upper, a middle, and a lower or basal), while the left has two lobes (an upper and a lower or basal). Each lung is irregularly conical in shape, presenting a blunt upper extremity (the apex), a concave base following the curve of the diaphragm, an outer convex surface (costal surface), an inner or mediastinal surface (mediastinal surface), a thin and sharp anterior border, and a thick and rounded posterior border.

Definition (NCI_NCI-GLOSS) One of a pair of organs in the chest that supplies the body with oxygen, and removes carbon dioxide from the body.
Definition (MSH) Either of the pair of organs occupying the cavity of the thorax that effect the aeration of the blood.
Definition (CSP) either of the pair of organs occupying the lateral cavity of the thorax that effect the aeration of the blood.

Respiratory System (C0035237)

Definition (FMA) Functional system which consists of structures involved in respiration.
Definition (MSHCZE) Tubulární a kavernózní orgány a struktury, jejichž prostřednictvím probíhá plicní ventilace a výměna plynů mezi venkovním vzduchem a krví.
Definition (NCI_NCI-GLOSS) The organs that are involved in breathing. These include the nose, throat, larynx, trachea, bronchi, and lungs.
Definition (NCI) The organs involved in the exchange of carbon dioxide and oxygen including the trachea, bronchi, bronchial tubes, lungs, and alveoli.
Definition (MSH) The tubular and cavernous organs and structures, by means of which pulmonary ventilation and gas exchange between ambient air and the blood are brought about.
Definition (CSP) structure and passages involved with the intake, expulsion, and exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide between blood and air; they include the nose, pharynx, larynx, trachea, bronchi, and the lungs.
