This dramatic demonstration kit provides an impressive, unforgettable, hands-on demonstration of how lungs work and the effects of prolonged smoking by using real swine lungs. Students are able to feel the texture and fragility of the lung, as well as learning that real lungs are not like rubber balloons in a bell jar. The inflatable swine lungs provided with this kit have been preserved with a Bioflex, nontoxic solution that retains the texture and elasticity of fresh lungs.
*NOTE: this product contains natural tissue (color may vary).
Students can see and learn how lungs, that are very comparable with their own, work by inflating and deflating them with a pump. A section of dried lung is included to show internal anatomy structures including arteries, veins, bronchioles, alveoli, and bronchi. The BioQuest® Inflatable Lungs Kit includes an inflation rack and tray, air pump, one pair of reusable, inflatable swine lungs, one section of dried swine lung, a teacher’s guide; and a container for storing the lungs.
