At the larynx, the cough mechanism moves secretions beyond the larynx and into the oropharynx.

Clinically, there are a number of factors that are now known to slow the rate of the mucociliary transport. , atropine) 26 SECTION ONE THE CARDIOPULMONARY SYSTEM—THE ESSENTIALS The Lamina Propria.

Most gas exchange occurs in the tight space area. The area around the bronchioles, alveolar ducts, and alveolar sacs is called the loose space. fibers are found in this area. Water content in this area can increase more than 30 percent before a significant pressure change develops. The collagen in the interstitium is believed to limit alveolar distensibility. Expansion of a lung unit beyond the limits of the interstitial collagen can (1) occlude the pulmonary capillaries or (2) damage the structural framework of the collagen fibers and, subsequently, the wall of the alveoli.
