cUriOus: How Our Lungs Work
We forget which movie character said "I'm addicted to breathing."
We all can relate, but Andy Lovering at the University of Oregon understands better than most people HOW we make use of the air we breathe.
Dr. Lovering runs the Cardiopulmonary & Respiratory Physiology Laboratory, examining issues like how people live well at very high altitudes, and what breathing issues show up later in life for people who were born prematurely.
Dr. Lovering is our guest in this month's edition of cUriOus: Research Meets Radio. We pick his brain about our lungs.
