One of a pair of viscera occupying the cavity of the thorax, the organs of respiration in which aeration of the blood takes place. The right lung is slightly larger than the left and is divided into three lobes (an upper, a middle, and a lower or basal), while the left has but two lobes (an upper and a basal). Each lung is irregularly conical in shape, presenting a blunt upper extremity (the apex), a concave base following the curve of the diaphragm, an outer convex surface (facies costalis), an inner or mediastinal surface (facies mediastinalis), a thin and sharp anterior border (margo anterior), and a thick and rounded posterior border (margo posterior).

The respiratory organ; the organ which serves for the aeration of the blood in an air breathing animal. In man the lungs, two in number, are situated one in each lateral half of the thorax. They are divided into lobes and lobules made up of assemblages of air vesicles, to which the bronchi and bronchioles convey atmospheric air, and from which the same channels carry off carbon dioxid and other waste products of respiration.
