Educational posters and medical illustrations to study the respiratory system Images include lungs, allergies, asthma and dangers of smoking posters.

"The respiratory system is the biological system of any organism that engages in gas exchange." Humans and mammals take in oxygen and expire carbon dioxide; trees and plants take in the animal waste of carbon dioxide and produce oxygen. The entire Earth can be described as having a respiratory system.

• “Breath is the bridge which connects life to consciousness, which unites your body to your thoughts.” ~ Thich Nhat Hanh

Respiratory System Poster

Illustrates the respiratory system from the frontal sinus to the diaphragm. Includes views of the paranasal sinuses, larynx, and bronchopulmonary segments. Also shows the structure of intrapulmonary airways and the cross section of alveolus. Discusses the conducting system, lungs and pleurae, ventilation, and gas exchange.

The Respiratory System and Asthma Anatomical Chart

Large illustration of the conducting system which is comprised of all the pathways through which the air travels to reach the lungs. Shows ventilation and gas exchange. Illustrates common asthma triggers and compares normal bronchioles to asthmatic bronchioles.

Understanding Asthma Chart
Understanding Asthma Chart

Understanding Asthma Chart

Looks at the causes, symptoms, risk factors and treatments for asthma. The anatomy of airways and gas exchange is graphically depicted, along with a peak flow chart. Images of normal and asthmatic bronchioles are shown for comparison in the asthma attack section.

Dangers of Smoking Anatomical Chart

Discusses and illustrates the common dangers of smoking: chronic bronchitis, emphysema, lung cancer, bladder cancer, stroke, mouth and throat cancer, bladder cancer, heart disease, gastric ulcer, and fetal risk. Compares a healthy lung to a smoker's lung.

Atmosphere Poster


Poster Text: Sphere Information.
The Earth is surrounded by a layer of air known as the atmosphere which separates it from space. The atmosphere consists of nitrogen (77%), oxygen (20%), argon (1%), carbon dioxide (.03%), and water vapor (0.4%). The atmosphere is broken down into four distinct layers. The troposphere, where almost all weather occurs, is the lowest layer and extends about 9 miles (14.5 kilometers) from Earth's surface. The stratosphere, extending to 31 miles (49.9 kilometers) contains the ozone layer which protects life on Earth from the sun's harmful ultraviolet rays. The mesophere sphere extends up to 59 miles (85.3 kilometers). The thermosphere, the final layer contains up to around 350 miles (581.3 kilometers.)

Respiratory System

Poster Text: The body needs oxygen to metabolize energy. The respiratory system is responsible for taking in oxygen and expelling carbon dioxide from the body. To take in oxygen, air is breathed in trhough your nose or mouth, and travels through the pharynx and trachea into your lungs, which expand as your diahragm contract. Here the bronchial tubes clean the air as mucus and cilla bilter out dirt and germs. The oxygen is then sent to the alveoli which are small sacs connected to capillaries. The capillaries take oxygen from the alveoli, and begin the process of transporting it to the heart, where it is pumped throughout the body. To expel carbon dioxide, oxygen-depleted blood is delivered from the heart to the lungs through capillaries. Here the carbon dioxide passes back through the bronchial tubes into the trachea. Air is forced out of the mouth or nose as the diaphragm relaxes and the lungs contract. ...
