QuestionAnswer
Volume of air in the conducting airways (mL)
Lung recoils is used during ____.
2 main forces that must be overcome during breathing?
Is the airflow in the conducting airways laminar or turbulent?
Volume of air remaining in the lungs after a normal expiration
patients with emphysema have a ____ lung compliance
T/F:An Increase in molecule solubility increases rate of diffusion
units for measurement of transpulmonary pressure
T/F: During inspiration, the pressure in the alveolus become sub-atmospheric, allowing air from the atmosphere to move into the lungs.
Z number or generation number for the trachea
Normal Tidal Volume in liters
T/F: During inspiration, the transpleural pressure difference becomes greater and allows for expansion of the lungs and alveoli.
given change in lung volume per given changes in pleural pressure
Has Z numbers spanning from Z17-Z23
Gas moves across the alveoli via _____ diffusion
Which component of Fick's Law can be manipulated in the clincial setting?
Work during breath occurs on ____.
Is the airflow in the respiratory or alveolar airways laminar or turbulent?
Volume of air that can be exhaled after normal expiration (=total lung capacity - residual volume)
low partial pressure of oxygen in tissues
T/F: A 'diffusion limited' A-a gradient is smaller than under normal circumstances.
pressure in the pleural cavity is normally ____ cm H2O at the end of a tidal volume breath
pressure in the atmosphere is ___ cm h20
low partial pressure of oxygen in blood
most important muscle for inspiration
Volume of air than can be inhaled at the end of a normal breath
Volume of exhaled air with every breath is known as ____ volume.
T/F: The terminal bronchioles are surrounded by smooth muscle
These bronchi are the site of highest resistance to airflow and are surrounded by smooth muscle
QuestionAnswer
Where is the majority of the surface area of the lung located?
inversely proportional to lung compliance
The diaphragm, the external intercostals, and the sternocleidomastoids are important for _____.
Maximal volume of air that can be inhaled after normal expiration (=tidal volume +IRV)
Volume of air that can be exhaled as forcibly and rapidly as possible from total lung capacity
A ____ in surface area and a _____in membrane thickness can cause the lung to become diffusion limited.
Function of these airways is to clean, condition, and warm air
Volume of air in lungs remaining after maximal expiration
Total volume of air in lungs after maximal inspiration
Maximal Volume that can be exhaled at the end of a tidal volume
Volume of air in the respiratory or alveolar airways (mL)
Average Lung Compliance for a tidal volume in L/cm H20 (Avg Volume = .5 and change in Pressure= 2.5)
The internal intercostals and the abdominal muscle are important for ____.
As the diaphragm contracts. the volume increases in the pleural space. What happens to the pleural pressure?
Principal(or Law) that provides the basis for airflow in the lung
patients with pulmonary fibrosis have a ___ lung recoil
True or False: The rate of diffusion is proportional to the area of the membrane and inversely proportional to it thickness
Has a Z number that spans from Z0-Z16
If the transpulmonary pressure is +3, then the lungs are ____ (collapsing or expanding).
T/F: Gas exchange ocurrs in the conducting airways.
T/F: An increase in particle size increases rate of diffusion
site of gas exchange in the lung
Essential muscle in creating differences in transpleural pressure
Volume of air in lungs after maximal inspiration
Volume of air in lungs after maximal expiration
Which gas is the first to be affected by a diffusion limited disorder?
On average, how much time does an RBC spend in the respiratory airways (sec)?
pressure difference between the alveoli and the pleural space is known as ____ ____.
