Because of its angle with the trachea and size of the main bronchus, a bronchoscope would pass more readily into which lung?
the main arterial supply for the pericardium
The sympathetic innervation of the heart originates from which part the thoracic spinal cord?
A ventricular septal defect (VSD) usually affects which portion of the interventricular septum?
the visceral and parietal plurae are continuous at the ...?
obstruction of a pulmonary artery by a blood clot
Stimulation of the sympathetic nervous system in the lungs acts to
inflammation of the pericardium
the posterior intercostal arteries arise from which artery?
entry of air into the pleural cavity resulting from penetrating wound to parietal pleura
These intercostal muscles help elevate ribs during inspiration
The thoracic wall is innervated by:
the brachiocephalic veins drain into which vein?
narrowing of the orifice of the aortic valve or of the supravalvular or subvalvular regions
the thick muscle layer of the heart
chest pain due to ischemia of the heart is known as
inferior boundary of the thoracic cavity
roots for the phrenic nerve
which bronchi is shorter and wider and more vertical.
This collection of autonomic fibers is located at the base of the heart behind and within the concavity of the arch of the aorta.
this pleura lines the pulmonary cavities, adhering to the pulmonary wall
Heart rate does what in the presence of parsympathetic stimulation?
The sternocostal surface of the heart is formed primarily by the anterior wall of which heart chamber?
the right 2nd intercostal space is the auscultation point for which valve?
failed closure of the foramen ovalis leads to?
contraction of the ventricles
this node is located in the cristae terminalis of the right atrium
injury to which nerve can cause paralysis of the diaphragm
Parasympathetic stimulation of the esophagus results in the rhythmic contraction of esophageal smooth muscle known as?
these structure prolong ribs and contribute to elasticity of the thoracic wall.
a surgical procedure in which an incision is made opening the chest cavity
The first rib articulates with the sternum directly below which joint?
interference with venous return of blood to the heart due to an extensive accumulation of fluid in the pericardium (pericardial effusion)
known as the pacemaker of the heart
muscles of the right ventricle are known as
Blockage of which artery would lead to ischemia of the apex of the heart?
Which chamber's anterior wall forms most of the sternocostal surface of the heart?
the visceral layer of the serous pericardium
the backflow of blood from ventricle to atrium
surgical creation of an opening through the thoracic wall to enter a pleural cavity
ANTERIOR VAGAL TRUNK of the esophagus is form from the left or right vagus nerve?
heart sounds heard as blood is pumped from the ventricles.
this node lies in the interatrial septum
occurs if a sufficient amount of air enters the pleural cavity causing the tension adhering visceral to parietal pleura to break
The pleural cavity near the cardiac notch is known as the:
compensatory circulation carried on through secondary channels after obstruction of the principal vessel supplying the part
a chronic disorder characterized by hyperreactive airways leading to episodic, reversible bronchoconstriction due to an increased sensitivity to irritating stimuli.
which lung has the cardiac notch?
midline incision through the sternum

the left 4th intercostal space (just lateral to the sternum) is the auscultation point for which valve?
Which valves would be open during ventricular systole?
posterior blood supply of the thorax comes from
an area of necrosis resulting from a sudden insufficiency of arterial or venous blood supply to the heart's muscular wall
aspiration of a foreign body usually falls into which mainstem?
arterial supply of the pericardium
inflitration of anesthetic around intercostal nerves.
accumulation of a significant amount of fluid in pleural cavity
left and right brachiocephalic veins drain into?

which nerve loops near the ligamentum arteriosum?
inflammation of the endocardium
muscles in the wall of the right atrium are known as?
insertion of a needle through an intercostal space in order to obtain pleural fluid
electric impulses of the heart originate here..
indents the anterioinferior aspect of the left lung
parasympathetic innervation of the heart is supplied by which nerve?
ligament that is a continuity between the pleural and parietal cavities that extends between parietal and mediastinum
this pleura covers the lungs and is adherent to all its surfaces
Which ribs have cartilages that are joined to the cartilage just superior to them (indirect attachment to sternum)?
Stimulation of the sympathetic nervous system in the heart will cause...?
these intercostal muscles help depress the ribs during expiration
the left 5th intercostal space (right below the nipple) is the auscultation point for which valve?
innervation of the diaphragm
Which ribs attach directly to the sternum through their own costal cartilages?
the progressive narrowing and hardening of the arteries over time
Stimulation of the parasympathetic nervous system in the lungs acts to
left lung has how many lobes?
a keel-shaped cartilage lying at the tracheal bifurcation--it separates the right main stem bronchus from the left main stem bronchus.
POSTERIOR VAGAL TRUNK of the esophagus is form from the left or right vagus nerve?
ventricular relaxation, elongation, or extension

escape of fluid into the pleural cavity
main vein of the heart
heart sound heard as blood passes through the atria to the ventricle
union of subclavian & internal jugular veins create which vein?
internal thoracic artery arise from which artery?
