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