A normal orientation of the head and chest with colored coded arrows demonstrates how oxygen move from the lungs to the brain. An enlargement of a healthy air sac (alveolus) shows oxygen and carbon dioxide going to and from the blood stream. Close-up of healthy brain shows small surface vessels carrying oxygenated blood to the brain. In contrast, the corresponding illustrations depicts how heart failure results in permanent brain damage.
