The main areas for absorption for gases and vapours with a high water solubility are the nasopharyngeal, which ranges from the nose to the pharynx and larynx, and the lower respiratory tract. Molecules with a low water solubility diffuse into the bloodstream through the pulmonary alveoli. This method is extremely efficient because the alveoli have a large surface area, approximately 100 m2 in humans, increasing the total area for simple/passive diffusion to take place. The...
