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