Let’s go on a “Fantastic Voyage!”

Imagine that you are a video reporter piloting a mini-sub that has been put through a miniaturization process making you and the sub only 8 microns long! (Ever see the movie “Inner Space”?)
You have been injected into the femoral vein of a healthy female. The alert just came out that a bacterium is invading the lower lobe of the right lung!! You are to pilot your sub to the site of the “invasion” and do a live report on what you see.

Trace your path from the right femoral vein to the lower lobe of the right lung via the right pulmonary artery:
Rules of the Road:
You may never go the wrong way down a “one-way street”
You are not allowed to “create” new roads
You may choose any possible route

Describe all major structures you pass by or through, just like a tour guide would do (but you don’t need to indicate every “side road”).
Now that you’ve arrived at the lung, describe the structures you see, and narrate how the body combats the invading bacterium using the knowledge you have gained in the first 4 units. Address both specific and nonspecific immunity and the cells that are involved in each process.
Once you have documented the “Battle of the Lung,” cross the alveolar membrane, and trace your route out of the body through the nose.

Hello! My name is XXX. I am reporting from the ultra mini submarines. Our laboratory “Human search like space search” received a tip, that the Mrs. Smith was invaded by unknown bacteria that is in progress and takes place in the lower lobe of the right lung.
We remind our listeners, that our lab is working on the project of human studies using space type of search. Mrs. Smith is a middle-aged healthy woman, during the day she was exposed to cold air during today's walk in the park. We believe that the pathogen offensive conducted from the air.
We decided to use a mini submarine like the shuttle, 8 microns in diameter (that's 8 parts of a millionth part of a meter) to make it easier to get to the places invasion. We will travel the cardiovascular system because it is the best way to get to any destination in the body.
On the course of our journey I will report you from the scene of the invasion. Our submarine is injected into the right femoral vein of Mrs. Smith in the femoral triangle. Our laboratory has decided for the entrance in that part of body, because it is the most suitable place to perform catheterization to examine the cardiovascular system.
