WHAT DOES ALVEOLUS MEAN IN ENGLISH?

alveolus

Pulmonary alveolus

An alveolus is an anatomical structure that has the form of a hollow cavity. Found in the lung parenchyma, the pulmonary alveoli are the terminal ends of the respiratory tree, which outcrop from either alveolar sacs or alveolar ducts, which are both sites of gas exchange with the blood as well. Alveoli are particular to mammalian lungs. Different structures are involved in gas exchange in other vertebrates. The alveolar membrane is the gas-exchange surface. Carbon dioxide rich blood is pumped from the rest of the body into the alveolar blood vessels where, through diffusion, it releases its carbon dioxide and absorbs oxygen.

Definition of alveolus in the English dictionary

The first definition of alveolus in the dictionary is any small pit, cavity, or saclike dilation, such as a honeycomb cell. Other definition of alveolus is any of the sockets in which the roots of the teeth are embedded. Alveolus is also any of the tiny air sacs in the lungs at the end of the bronchioles, through which oxygen is taken into the blood.
