He found a major cause of bronchial asthma and many other chronic diseases to be a deficiency of carbon dioxide in the alveolus of our lungs.
These problems can be fixed by grafting bone matter onto the alveolus .
Carbon dioxide in the lungs is 4.5 to 6%, in the blood of alveolus 6.5% and in cells 7%.
The primary mechanism driving fluid clearance from the alveolus is the active transport of sodium from air spaces into the lung interstitium.
As altitude increases above sea level, atmospheric pressure drops with a parallel decrease in the amount of oxygen available at the blood/air interface in the lung alveolus .
The tooth is two-rooted, with each root housed in its own alveolus .
First, the bacteria entering the alveolus are likely to be thrust up against the alveolar wall, where they will become immersed in the epithelial lining fluid.
Recent studies have shown that it may have a critical role in lung growth, affecting new formation of both alveoli and pulmonary blood vessels.
Several workers have suggested that the entire alveolate clade is derived from a photosynthetic ancestor.
No preserved teeth or alveoli can be observed in the premaxilla and dentary bones.
