QuestionAnswer
According to LaPlaces Law, an increase in surface tension causes a ____ ( increase or decrease) in the pressure required to hold it open.
______ diseases are characterized by the inability to properly inflate the lungs. They include pulmonary fibrosis and edema.
T/F: Work on expiration only occurs in pathological processes.
Surfactant creates a ____:air interface which reduces surface tension.
More surfactant causes a _____ in lung compliance.
_____ adrenergic receptors can be found on the bronchi, causing bronchodilation.
______ diseases are characterized by the inability to deflate the lungs. They include emphysema, asthma and COPD
According to LaPlaces Law, an increase in airway/ alveolar radius causes a ____ ( increase or decrease) in the pressure required to hold it open.
Which variable of Poisuelle's Law influences resistance the most?
Preemies born before ____ weeks have collapsed alveoli due to no lung surfactant and high lung recoil.
What is the pressure (cm H20) required to open an alveolus during tidal volume breathing?
In an restrictive disorder, the FEV1/FVC ratio is ____ (higher or lower) than normal.
In an restrictive disorder, the FEV1 value is ____ (higher or lower) than normal.
the difference in the pressure volume curves for inspiration and expiration is known a _____.
Stage of inspiration characterized by a decrease in pleural pressure and an increase in lung volume
patients have chronic cough with sputum production. Have severe inflammation with airway obstruction. Severe Hypoxemia and Hypercapnea
the amount of air that can be forcefully exhaled within one second
Type of flow with a reynolds number < 2000
Main resistor of the lungs
Reduction in surfactant causes a ____ in lung recoil.
In an obstructive disorder, the FEV1/FVC ratio is ____ (higher or lower) than normal.
An increase in the pressure gradient would ____ air flow.
In absence of surfactant, what would happen to lung compliance?
If the radius of a respiratory airway is decreased by 2, then the flow would be decreased by a factor of ___.
T/F: In the pulmonary system, the sympathetic nervous system causes bronchoconstriction through epi and noreepinephrine, whil parasympathetic causes bronchodilation through ACH.
Stage of inspiration characterized by a decrease in pleural pressure but no change in lung volume
Type of flow with a reynolds number > 4000
______ (restrictive or destructive) disorders are characterized by a low compliance/ high recoil.
In an obstructive disorder, the FEV1 value is ____ (higher or lower) than normal.
T/F: Reduction in surface tension, reduces the amount of pressure required to keep an alveolus open.
QuestionAnswer
type of asthma that is induced by allergens
T/F: As the lungs deflate, airway resistance is increased exponentially due to a decrease in the radii of the airways.
T/F: It is easier to open a closed airway than to hold it open.
Stage of inspiration that is marked by an increase in the transpulmonary pressure gradient that has diminishing returns due a decrease in lung comliance
type of asthma that is exercise or cold induced
Which pneumocytes produce surfactant?
______ (restrictive or destructive) disorders are characterized by a increase in residual volume.
If the length of airway decreases, what would happen to the flow of air? (increases or decreases)
The flow of air in the lungs stops when the lungs reach the _____ volume, where resistance is very high.
major site of airway resistance
As we move toward a lower lung volume, airway resistance will _____ (increase or decrease) exponentially.
If the viscosity of air increases, what would happen to the flow of air? (increases or decreases)
T/F: There is a very high resistance to flow in the alveoli
______ (restrictive or destructive) disorders are characterized by high compliance/low recoil.
The air:water surface tension contributes what percentage to lung recoil properties?
______ (restrictive or destructive) disorders are characterized by a decrease in total lung capacity.
Pleural Pressure must be ____ cm H20 or beyond to open an airway.
