Histology is a vast and complex
field, but it provides valuable
insights into the structure and
function of tissues in various
organisms. It has played a
major role in advancing our
understanding of health,
disease, and biology.

•Tissue fixation: This process
preserves the tissue and
prevents it from decomposing.
•Embedding: The tissue is
embedded in a medium, such
as paraffin wax, to make it
easier to cut into thin sections.
•Sectioning: The tissue is cut
into very thin
sections, typically 5-10
micrometers thick.
•Staining: The sections are
stained with dyes to highlight
specific structures.
techniques used in histology:

The respiratory system is
essential for life. It provides
your body with the oxygen it
needs to function and removes
the carbon dioxide that would
otherwise build up and be
toxic.

The respiratory system is a
complex network of organs
and tissues that work together
to allow you to breathe. Its
primary function is to take in
oxygen from the air and
release carbon dioxide, a waste
product of cellular respiration.
The system is made up of the
following:
The system is made up
of the following:

•Upper respiratory tract: This
includes the nose
1. nasal cavity,
2. sinuses,
3. pharynx (throat)
4. And
5. larynx (voice box).
Upper respiratory tract
Histology of respiratory system for medical
students
10
Lower respiratory
tract: This includes the
trachea (windpipe)
bronchi, bronchioles, and
alveoli air sacs
in the lungs.
Histology of respiratory system for medical
students
11
Muscles of respiration: The
diaphragm and intercostal
muscles help to expand and
contract the chest cavity
creating the pressure
changes needed for
breathing.
Histology of respiratory system for medical
students
12
how the respiratory system works:
1.Inhalation: You breathe in air
through your nose or mouth. The
air passes through the nasal
cavity, where it is
warmed, humidified, and filtered. It
then travels down the pharynx and
into the larynx.
2.Gas exchange: The air travels
down the trachea and into the
bronchi, which branch off into
smaller and smaller airways called
bronchioles. These eventually lead
to the alveoli, tiny sacs in the lungs
where gas exchange takes
place. Oxygen diffuses from the
alveoli into the bloodstream, while
carbon dioxide diffuses from the
bloodstream into the alveoli.
3.Exhalation: You breathe out air
through your nose or mouth. The
air travels back up the airways and
out of the body.

  • 7. Histology of respiratory system for medical students 7 The respiratory system is essential for life. It provides your body with the oxygen it needs to function and removes the carbon dioxide that would otherwise build up and be toxic.
  • 8. Histology of respiratory system for medical students 8 The respiratory system is a complex network of organs and tissues that work together to allow you to breathe. Its primary function is to take in oxygen from the air and release carbon dioxide, a waste product of cellular respiration. The system is made up of the following:
  • 9. The system is made up of the following: Histology of respiratory system for medical students 9 •Upper respiratory tract: This includes the nose 1. nasal cavity, 2. sinuses, 3. pharynx (throat) 4. And 5. larynx (voice box). Upper respiratory tract
  • 10. Histology of respiratory system for medical students 10 Lower respiratory tract: This includes the trachea (windpipe) bronchi, bronchioles, and alveoli air sacs in the lungs.
  • 11. Histology of respiratory system for medical students 11 Muscles of respiration: The diaphragm and intercostal muscles help to expand and contract the chest cavity creating the pressure changes needed for breathing.
  • 12. Histology of respiratory system for medical students 12 how the respiratory system works: 1.Inhalation: You breathe in air through your nose or mouth. The air passes through the nasal cavity, where it is warmed, humidified, and filtered. It then travels down the pharynx and into the larynx. 2.Gas exchange: The air travels down the trachea and into the bronchi, which branch off into smaller and smaller airways called bronchioles. These eventually lead to the alveoli, tiny sacs in the lungs where gas exchange takes place. Oxygen diffuses from the alveoli into the bloodstream, while carbon dioxide diffuses from the bloodstream into the alveoli. 3.Exhalation: You breathe out air through your nose or mouth. The air travels back up the airways and out of the body.
