The lungs are the essential organs of the respiratory framework in people and numerous different creatures including a couple of fish and a few snails. In warm blooded creatures and most different vertebrates, two lungs are situated close to the spine on either side of the heart. Their capacity in the respiratory framework is to extricate oxygen from the climate and move it into the circulation system, and to discharge carbon dioxide from the circulatory system into the environment, in a procedure of gas trade. Breath is driven by various strong frameworks in various species. Well evolved creatures, reptiles and feathered creatures utilize their distinctive muscles to help and cultivate relaxing. In early tetrapods, air was crashed into the lungs by the pharyngeal muscles through buccal pumping, a component still found in creatures of land and water. In people, the primary muscle of breath that drives breathing is the stomach. The lungs likewise give wind current that makes vocal sounds including human discourse conceivable.

The tissue of the lungs can be influenced by various sicknesses, including pneumonia and lung tumor. Constant obstructive aspiratory sickness incorporates ceaseless bronchitis and already named emphysema, can be identified with smoking or introduction to destructive substances, for example, coal dust, asbestos filaments and crystalline silica dust. Ailments, for example, bronchitis can likewise influence the respiratory tract. Medicinal terms identified with the lung regularly start with pulmo-, from the Latin pulmonarius (of the lungs) as in pulmonology, or with pneumo-(from Greek πνεύμων "lung") as in pneumonia.

In embryonic improvement, the lungs start to create as an outpouching of the foregut, a tube which goes ahead to shape the upper piece of the stomach related framework. At the point when the lungs are shaped the baby is held in the liquid filled amniotic sac thus they don't capacity to relax. Blood is additionally redirected from the lungs through the ductus arteriosus. During childbirth in any case, air starts to go through the lungs, and the diversionary pipe closes, with the goal that the lungs can start to breathe. The lungs just completely create in early youth.

Humans have two lungs, a right lung and a left lung. They are situated within the thoracic cavity of the chest. The right lung is bigger than the left, which shares space in the chest with the heart. The lungs together weigh approximately 1.3 kilograms (2.9 lb), and the right is heavier. The lungs are part of the lower respiratory tract that begins at the trachea and branches into the bronchi and bronchioles, and which receive air breathed in via the conducting zone. The conducting zone ends at the terminal bronchioles. These divide into the respiratory bronchioles of the respiratory zone which divide into alveolar ducts that give rise to the microscopic alveoli, where gas exchange takes place. Together, the lungs contain approximately 2,400 kilometres (1,500 mi) of airways and 300 to 500 million alveoli. Each lung is enclosed within a pleural sac which allows the inner and outer walls to slide over each other whilst breathing takes place, without much friction. This sac also divides each lung into sections called lobes. The right lung has three lobes and the left has two. The lobes are further divided into bronchopulmonary segments and lobules. The lungs have a unique blood supply, receiving deoxygenated blood from the heart in the pulmonary circulation for the purposes of receiving oxygen and releasing carbon dioxide, and a separate supply of oxygenated blood to the tissue of the lungs, in the bronchial circulation.
