Lungs Identify This picture "Pneumocytes"

I was looking over some review and found this...



The alveoli bring RBCs into close proximity with inspired air. Type I pneumocytes (blue) are the squamous cells that form a component of the air-blood barrier. The cuboidal Type II pneumocytes (green) secrete surfactant that reduces surface tension and prevents atelectasis.
Bar = 30 Microns

Another one...







=) We all know the fuction of each one, but some question can be tricky on the image =) so i was reviewing these picture... =) Hope it helps...

Always, 1 more thing,, please keep in mind the different between the type 1 and type 2... as you can see the type 2 are more prominent, cuboid and clear to see.. the type 1 are just close to the membrane blood-air membrane... just that tip!

An alveolar macrophage (or dust cell) is a type of macrophage found in the pulmonary alveolus, near the pneumocytes, but separated from the wall.
Dust cells are another name for monocyte derivatives in the lungs that reside on respiratory surfaces and clean off particles such as dust or microorganisms.
