The lungs are surrounded by two membranes, the pleura. The outer pleura is attached to the chest wall and is known as the parietal pleura; the inner one is attached to the lung and other visceral tissues and is known as the visceral pleura. In between the two is a thin space known as the pleural cavity or pleural space. It is filled with pleural fluid, a serous fluid produced by the pleura. The pleural fluid lubricates the pleural surfaces and allows the layers of pleura to slide against each other easily during respiration. It also provides the surface tension that keeps the lung surface in contact with the chest wall. During quiet breathing, the cavity normally experiences a negative pressure (compared to the atmosphere) which helps adhere the lungs to the chest wall, so that movements of the chest wall during breathing are coupled closely to movements of the lungs. See the related link for more information.

The visceral pleura, adheres closely to the subjacent alveoli of the lung.


No. The parietal layer of the pleura is in contact with the thoracic cavity.


The pleura is the lining of the chest cavity.Partial PleuraViseral pluravisceral pleura



The visceral pleura is deep to the parietal pleura. The visceral is closer to the lungs.


The membrane lining on the lung is the visceral pleura and the membrane lining the inside of the chest cavity is the parietal pleura.


Cranial cavity - serous membranes dorsal cavity = the back ventral cavity - has the thoracic cavity which contains the lungs(parietal pleura and visceral pleura membranes) and the heart (parietal pericardium and visceral pericardium membranes), the abdominal cavity (parietal peritoneum and visceral peritoneum membranes) and the pelvic cavity which is also peritoneum membranes)


The pleurae cover each lung and line the inner surface of the thoracic cavity. The pleura that encloses the lung is called the visceral pleura. The pleura that lines the thoracic cavity is the parietal pleura.


The visceral pleura adheres to the surface of the lung, while the parietal pleura lines the thoracic cavity. The pleura produces lubricating serous fluid that allows its two layers to slide against one another.


Actually, the structure of the lunge is make up Visceral pleura, Parietal pleura, and Pleural cavity


The difference between these two pleura is that the parietal pleura is the outtermost covering of the lung which is adhered to the inner thoracic wall, while the visceral pleura is the lining which is directly adhered to the lung itself. The space between these two pleuras is know as the pleual cavity.


The pleural cavity is the potential space between the two pleura (visceral and parietal) of the lungs, the intraembryonic coelom is one continuous space. During development this space partitions to form the pericardial, pleural and peritoneal cavities. The diaphragm and the paired pleuropericardial membranes separate the coelomic cavity into four parts. From the splanchnopleura (the visceral mesodermal layer) develops the Visceral pleura and from the somatopleura (parietal mesodermal layer) develops the parietal pleura.


The lungs are surrounded by two membranes, the pleurae. The outer pleura covers and is attached to the chest wall and is known as the parietal pleura. The inner one covers and is attached to the lung and other visceral tissues i.e. vessels, bronchi and nerves and is known as the visceral pleura. In between the two is an actual thin space known as the pleural cavity or pleural space normally containing a small amount of pleural fluid.=The parietal pleura is highly sensitive to pain; the visceral pleura is not.=


Visceral pleura. The parietal pleura surrounds the outside of the lung. When you are dissecting, the parietal pleura is the layer of lung that you remove. It is difficult to remove the visceral pleura, but not impossible.


You have little fluid between the visceral and parietal pleura. It acts as the lubricant to prevent the friction between both the layers of pleura.


Lungs are totally elastic organs. They are kept in position by negative pressure in visceral and parietal pleura. There is no gas in cavity between both pleura. In fact both pleura are part of one one collapsed balloon. Very small amount of fluid in cavity between pleura keeps it lubricating. If air accidentally enters there, then there is a condition called as Pneumothorax. There is also a condition called as Tension Pneumothorax. Which is an emergency.

It's called the Pleural Membrane.The ribs surround the lungs in the thorasica cavity.Pleuralvisceral lung pleura. parietal pleura lines the thoracic wall and diaphragm.it is the pleuraThe membranes that surround the lungs are collectively called the Plurae.Pleura?


The pulmonary cavity is the space lined by parietal pleura that each lung occupies. The right and left pulmonary cavities are separated by the mediastinum. It is important to not confuse the pleural cavity with the pulmonary cavity. The pleural cavity is the potential space between the parietal and visceral pleura containing a small amount of serous fluid that surrounds each lung.


pneumothorax: condition in which an injury to the chest wall penetrates the parietal pleura or damages the alveoli and the visceral pleura allows air into the pleural cavity. The result is an atelectasis, or a collapsed lung. Treatment involves removing all of the air before closing the opening. pneumothorax: condition in which an injury to the chest wall penetrates the parietal pleura or damages the alveoli and the visceral pleura allows air into the pleural cavity.

Between the parietal and visceral pleura.


They are called pleura. There are 2 membranes, the visceral which is the outer slippery covering, and the parietal which is the inner covering, with a cavity in between them called the pleural cavity


The parietal layer of the pleura lines the thoracic cavity.


Pleural Cavity is the body cavity that surrounds the right and left lung. The pleura is a serous membrane which folds back to form a two-layered, membrane structure. The thin space between the two pleural layers is known as the pleural cavity; it normally contains a small amount of pleural fluid. The outer pleura parietal pleura is attached to the chest wall. The inner pleura, visceral pleura covers the lungs and adjoining structures.
