alveolar pressure - pleural pressure =
Type I cells are composed of what type of epithelium?
The layer of the pleura that touches the lungs is which layer?
This is the volume that fresh air mixes with in order to increase lung oxygen stores, and decrease lung carbon dioxide stores.
Alveolar ducts lead into
What do Type II cells do?
The supply in which the lung tissues receive O2 blood from bronchial arteries.
End-Expiratory Lung Volume is also known as:
Recoiling of the lungs raises or lowers alveolar pressure?
An increase in pressure lowers or raises the intrepleural pressure?
This structure separates the upper and lower parts of the respiratory system
At end inspiration, the diaphragm relaxes and elastic tissues in the lungs do what?
Large fluctuations in O2 and CO2 are results of a larger or smaller FRC?
This is the measure of ease with which the lungs can be inflated.
Which process begins when the diaphragm contracts to enlarge the thoracic cage?
This is the primary inspiratory muscle.
Atmospheric pressure in Tucson is
This type of respiration refers to oxidation of glucose to produce ATP
The measurement of the rate of air movement into the lungs (L/min or mL/sec)
When the pressure in the lungs becomes lower than atmospheric pressure, you:
This is the volume of air that remains in the lungs after expiration.
The respiratory zone starts at the
The air that actually ventilates the alveoli (TV - dead space V) x breathing frequency [L/min]
This type of respiration refers to the exchange of gases between the atmosphere and the pulmonary circulation
This is the volume that is measured during the period between breaths.
Atmospheric pressure at sea level is
This depends on periodic pressure changes in the lungs.
Atmospheric pressure in Denver is
Between breaths, alveolar pressure is about equal to what?
The diaphragm, external intercostals, sternocleidomastoid and the scalenes are all apart of which groups of respiratory muscles?
The conducting zone ends at the
The right lung has how many lobes?
These muscles pull the ribs down and inward in order to reduce the diameter of the rib cage.
TV (L) x Breathing Frequency (breaths/min) [L/min]
When the pressure in the lungs is higher than atmospheric pressure, you:
Asbestosis causes the lung tissues to thicken or stiffen. This causes a decreased or increased compliance?
These muscles raise the top two ribs.
These muscles depress the lower ribs and move the diaphragm up and into the thorax.
The respiratory muscles, rib cage, pleural membranes and lung elastic tissues all comprise the what?
The supply in which the lung capillaries receive deO2 blood from pulmonary arteries
The internal intercostals and abdominal muscles are apart of which groups of respiratory muscles?
Which is the outer layer of the pleura, i.e. it touches the rib cage?
Respiratory bronchioles branch into
Emphysema raises FRC; therefore, it increases or decreases compliance?
This muscle elevates the sternum.
FRC stands for:
This type of respiration refers to gas exchange between capillary oxygen and tissue cells
Labored breathing is the result of a larger or smaller FRC?
These muscles expand the rib cage by moving the ribs upward and out.
The alternating flow of air into and out of the lungs
The left lung has how many lobes?
