Anatomical Lung Necklace Takes Your Breath Away

by Shane McGlaun

Back in the day, I went to college and picked a career because I heard it paid really well. Turns out that was a lie, but whatevs. Now, I have that degree in Respiratory Therapy, and while I spent a long time working in the field, mostly all I remember from college are things like the hottie in my class that had a penchant for blue spandex dresses, how disturbingly in love with dissecting fetal pigs my anatomy teacher was, and to never stand at the end of a tracheostomy patient’s bed.

I also have a bunch of odd little factoids about lungs stored away just in case I end up on Jeopardy and a category is Cardiopulmonary Anatomy. Did you know that if you peeled your lungs open and laid all the alveoli (little balloon-like air sacs) and other airways out they would cover a tennis court? Surface area bros, surface area. If you want to celebrate the fact that you have lungs, this is the necklace you need.

It’s wooden, on a 17-inch chain, and has airways burnt into it. If you know a smoker, you could paint it black and give it as a gift.

It’s kind of pricy for a weird necklace at $25.99(USD) at ThinkGeek. It would totally make a Respiratory Therapist happy though.
