Cutaneous Membranes of the Respiratory Tract

$7.00 $5.00

The cutaneous membrane of the respiratory tract is composed of epithelial tissues and underlying layers of specialised connective tissues. The cutaneous membrane of the respiratory tract displays the pseudo-stratified columnar epithelium in which the cells have different heights and do no reach the epithelial sheet. The membrane has numerous mucus-secreting goblet cells and cilia. The uniform motion of the cilia in the respiratory air passages causes a thin layer of tacky mucus to flow in one direction over the surface of the membrane. According to Rosdahl and Kowalski (2008), the flow of mucus traps dust particles, thus protecting the inner delicate lung tissues (p. 255).
