COPD: Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease - Medical Illustration, Human Anatomy Drawing
This set of medical illustrations depicts chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), also known as chronic obstructive airway disease (COAD). COPD is a general term for airway obstruction associated with lung disorders such as emphysema and chronic bronchitis, both of which are depicted here. Chronic bronchitis is characterized by a chronic productive cough, accompanied by a narrowed airway and decreased gas exchange. Emphysema is characterized by decreased gas exchange and the abnormal permanent enlargement of the alveoli, along with destruction of their walls and without obvious fibrosis (emphysematous alveoli). Labeled structures include respiratory bronchiole, pulmonary artery, pulmonary vein, alveolus (air sac), intra-alveolar septum, terminal bronchiole, mucous membrane and alveolar capillary network.
"I just wanted to let you know that after several days on trial, I settled
[my client's] construction accident case for $4.5 million. Immediately after
the jury was discharged, I spoke with several jurors who told me that they
really appreciated the medical illustrations for their clarity in dealing
with [my client's] devastating injuries. They also expressed their gratitude
in being able to read from a distance all of the notations without
difficulty. Obviously, the boards were visually persuasive. I am certain
that this contributed to our successful result."
