Stage14 Respiratory Tract Development
This diagram is designed to show the association between the foregut and the early respiratory system at about stage 13 to 14 (week 4-5) of development.
Excerpts of the histology sections and their approximate level are shown in the cartoon of the embryonic respiratory/gastrointestinal tracts.
- initial bifurcation of foregut (oesophagus) and respiratory (trachea).
- heart (ventral) and the dorsal aortas (dorsal) to the lung buds.
- stomach below the lung buds.
- narrow pleural canals outside the lung buds.
