Air flows down the tracheobronchial tree as a mass to about the level of the terminal bronchioles, like water flowing through a tube. Because the crosssectional area becomes so great beyond this point, however, the forward motion essentially stops and the molecular movement of gas becomes the dominant mechanism of ventilation. BRONCHIAL BLOOD SUPPLY The bronchial arteries nourish the tracheobronchial tree. The arteries arise from the aorta and follow the tracheobronchial tree as far as the terminal bronchioles.

Schematic drawing of the components of the major blood vessels. 39 40 SECTION ONE THE CARDIOPULMONARY SYSTEM—THE ESSENTIALS in medium-sized to small arteries.

Terminal Bronchioles. The conducting tubes of the tracheobronchial tree end with the terminal bronchioles between the sixteenth and nineteenth generations. 5 mm.

As the wall of the terminal bronchioles progressively becomes thinner, small channels, called the canals of Lambert, begin to appear between the inner luminal surface of the terminal bronchioles and the adjacent alveoli that surround them (Figure 1–23).
