rupture first out of one set of capillaries,
then through the celular tissue, and lastly 
into another set of capillaries, should 
take place. Those who have made many 
injections know that it is much easier to 
send the injection from the pulmonary artery

anastomosis between the bronchial & pulmonary 
systems of vessels does well to call to mind the

the circulation through the pulmonary 
arteries is interrupted, in which cases the 
bronchial arteries frequently wholly replace 
branches of the pulmonary artery, and 
become respiratory vessels; conditions
