COPD: Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease - Medical Illustration, Human Anatomy Drawing
This set of medical illustrations depicts chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), also known as chronic obstructive airway disease (COAD). COPD is a general term for airway obstruction associated with lung disorders such as emphysema and chronic bronchitis, both of which are depicted here. Chronic bronchitis is characterized by a chronic productive cough, accompanied by a narrowed airway and decreased gas exchange. Emphysema is characterized by decreased gas exchange and the abnormal permanent enlargement of the alveoli, along with destruction of their walls and without obvious fibrosis (emphysematous alveoli). Labeled structures include respiratory bronchiole, pulmonary artery, pulmonary vein, alveolus (air sac), intra-alveolar septum, terminal bronchiole, mucous membrane and alveolar capillary network.
"A few words about The Doe Report: recently in a brachial plexus injury
case, we used an image from The Doe Report to demonstrate the injury. We
downloaded the PDF file image, and were amazed at the quality. The hard
copies that you sent were even more clear. As well, we could not have been
happier when you customized the image and reversed the injury from the left
shoulder to the right shoulder, which is where our client's injury was.
The speed and cost-effectiveness of the product made it the perfect tool for
our purposes. We will use The Doe Report again in future cases."

"We got a defense verdict yesterday! Your exhibit was extremely helpful in
showing the jury how unlikely it is to damage all four of the nerve branches
which control the sense of taste."
