What Does Lung Apex Mean?
Hi.rnI want to ask what is the apex of the lung.
Medical terminology comes from Latin and is used as a uniform language throughout the world. By understanding medical terminology in Latin, it will make it easier for someone to understand scientific reading on medical themes. The term lung apex comes from the word apex. Apex is Latin which translates as a peak of a building, or a sharp rounded end. In the lung, the apex area is the top area of the lung that contains a lot of oxygen, and usually in this area tuberculosis bacteria develop in patients with tuberculosis, because it contains a lot of oxygen. Further on this matter, we attach an article from outside regarding the definition of apex. Hope it is useful.
