Forced Order
T/F: During inspiration, the pressure in the alveolus become sub-atmospheric, allowing air from the atmosphere to move into the lungs.
site of gas exchange in the lung
inversely proportional to lung compliance
Maximal Volume that can be exhaled at the end of a tidal volume
units for measurement of transpulmonary pressure
Average Lung Compliance for a tidal volume in L/cm H20 (Avg Volume = .5 and change in Pressure= 2.5)
Has Z numbers spanning from Z17-Z23
Maximal volume of air that can be inhaled after normal expiration (=tidal volume +IRV)
T/F: Gas exchange ocurrs in the conducting airways.
Normal Tidal Volume in liters
T/F: During inspiration, the transpleural pressure difference becomes greater and allows for expansion of the lungs and alveoli.
Volume of air remaining in the lungs after a normal expiration
Volume of exhaled air with every breath is known as ____ volume.
Work during breath occurs on ____.
low partial pressure of oxygen in blood
pressure in the pleural cavity is normally ____ cm H2O at the end of a tidal volume breath
T/F: A 'diffusion limited' A-a gradient is smaller than under normal circumstances.
Is the airflow in the respiratory or alveolar airways laminar or turbulent?
T/F:An Increase in molecule solubility increases rate of diffusion
Volume of air that can be exhaled after normal expiration (=total lung capacity - residual volume)
patients with pulmonary fibrosis have a ___ lung recoil
Where is the majority of the surface area of the lung located?
Volume of air in lungs after maximal inspiration
The internal intercostals and the abdominal muscle are important for ____.
low partial pressure of oxygen in tissues
Volume of air in the conducting airways (mL)
A ____ in surface area and a _____in membrane thickness can cause the lung to become diffusion limited.
pressure in the atmosphere is ___ cm h20
Volume of air in lungs after maximal expiration
Has a Z number that spans from Z0-Z16
Which component of Fick's Law can be manipulated in the clincial setting?
patients with emphysema have a ____ lung compliance
Volume of air in lungs remaining after maximal expiration
given change in lung volume per given changes in pleural pressure
Volume of air that can be exhaled as forcibly and rapidly as possible from total lung capacity
These bronchi are the site of highest resistance to airflow and are surrounded by smooth muscle
Total volume of air in lungs after maximal inspiration
Volume of air than can be inhaled at the end of a normal breath
Lung recoils is used during ____.
T/F: The terminal bronchioles are surrounded by smooth muscle
Essential muscle in creating differences in transpleural pressure
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

pressure difference between the alveoli and the pleural space is known as ____ ____.
Z number or generation number for the trachea
True or False: The rate of diffusion is proportional to the area of the membrane and inversely proportional to it thickness
Volume of air in the respiratory or alveolar airways (mL)
