Dr. Heale’s statements as to the distribution
of the bronchial artery to the bronchial mucous 
membrane are ambiguous. At p 21 he speaks 
of a very vascular plexus which ramifies 
on the surface of the mucous membrane of the 
bronchial tubes, which is exclusively in connexion 
with the pulmonary veins, and receives no an-
astomosing contribution from the bronchial 
arteries.
At p 32 he says “the mucous membrane 
of the bronchial tubes receives a moderate 
quantity of extremely minute bloodvessels 
derived from the bronchial artery” He then 
repeats his assertion as to the special vascular 
plexus being exclusively derived from the 
Pulmonary vessels - again at p 55, he states 
that some of the ramifications of the bronchial 
artery to the fibrous structure of the air tubes 
extend in the form of exceedingly minute 
capillaries into the tissues of the mucous mem-
brane which lines them.
The impression left by the author is,
that the distribution of the bronchial 
artery to the bronchial mucous membrane 
is insignificant - In B no 2 fig b the arteri-
