dc.description.abstractAlthough one of Lou-Wheeze's lungs is smooth and pink-a shining example of tobacco-free living-the other one destroyed by emphysema and cancer looks more like melted plastic than human tissue. These two models illustrate their differences in appearance and function with no mess and minimal setup. As the bellows pump inflates the lungs the healthy one deflates easily while the diseased one struggles to expel its air before the next "breath." Viewers quickly get a sense of the smothering feeling victims of emphysema experience being unable to inhale fresh air because their lungs are overinflated.en_US
