Thread: Coughing up a lung

    Coughing up a lung

    This story features a visually amazing blood clot that was formed inside the branching lung airways of the right side, and was expectorated intact.

    It looks like a wet red tree.
    If that's something you are comfortable with seeing, go ahead and click. It has a weird beauty.

    I cannot imagine the discomfort involved. Clearly, that lung wasn't working at all.

    I've never been one for medical photos.

    I fully respect the profession but I can't imagine having to deal with the stuff you see in photos.

    Amazing. Most have felt like he coughed up a dead alsatian at the time.

    Reminds me of plastinated corpses shown on display in the human body expositions.

    Its one of these "1 in a million" things even tho I would assume the chance for this blood clot to surface intact through a violent coughing is almost non-existing and would make lottery wins an every day affair for everybody ^^ I still cant believe it happened I mean LOOK at how fragile it is and its all blood.....wow
