To be effective at gas exchange, the lungs cannot act in isolation. They must interact
with the central nervous system (which provides the rhythmic drive to breathe), the
diaphragm and muscular apparatus of the chest wall (which respond to signals from
the central nervous system and act as a bellows for movement of air), and the circulatory
system (which provides blood flow and thus gas transport between the tissues
and lungs).

The processes of oxygen uptake and carbon dioxide elimination by the
lungs depend on proper functioning of all these systems, and a disturbance in any of
them can result in clinically important abnormalities in gas transport and thus arterial
blood gases. This chapter begins with an initial overview of pulmonary anatomy, followed
by a discussion of mechanical properties of the lungs and chest wall, and a
consideration of some aspects of the contribution of the lungs and the circulatory
system to gas exchange. Additional discussion of pulmonary and circulatory physiology
is presented in Chapters 4, 8, and 12; neural, muscular, and chest wall interactions
with the lungs are discussed further in Chapter 17.
