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

most important muscle for inspiration
low partial pressure of oxygen in tissues
