    Bronchial alveolar wash after inhalation smoke injury

    Carbon particles associated with alveolar macrophages in bronchial alveolar wash due to inhalation smoke injury. Chemical injury continues as long as chemical-covered carbon particles remain attached to the airway mucosa, with the size of the particles determining where damage will occur within the respiratory tree.
