The lung and respiratory function in Greek medical texts of the 18th and early 19th century
Abstract
Knowledge about lung anatomy and respiratory function appearing in Greek texts of the 18th and early 19th century is presented. It is documented that new knowledge about the critical role of oxygen in the function of respiration was quickly transferred in the Greek region by medical texts translated in the Greek language. Pneumon 2005, 18(3):279-282.
Keywords: lung, respiration, oxygen
