Pluck (Lungs & Liver) Dissection || Take Your Breath Away

How are you breathing right now? Learn how to dissect a pluck in this video, which covers the external and internal anatomy and physiology of the lungs and liver. In this simple dissection of a pluck, you’ll learn various parts of its physiology, how the lung takes in air, and the functions of the liver.

The lungs are a vital part of the human body. Without them, your body would be unable to take in oxygen and get rid of carbon dioxide. How do they do it? Are the lungs more like a balloon or a sponge? Also, did you know that the right lung is bigger than the left? In this video, you’ll learn general information about the lungs and liver, which will be tied into its anatomical structures.

This dissection lab is for anyone who is curious about lung anatomy, wants to cover lung anatomy for a course, missed the lung dissection during biology class, or just wondered, “How am I breathing right now?”. The video will teach you how to dissect a pluck step by step, and review the external and internal anatomy of the lungs and liver.

In this video, we’ll cover the following structures:

Trachea Bronchioles

Esophagus Alveoli (mentioned)

Cartilage rings Diaphragm

Mucus (mentioned) Liver
