ventricular folds are also known as
Chronic respiratory infections caused by poor mucociliary clearance due to immotile cilia (absent dynein arms)
true or false: type I alveolar cells are able to replicate.
Single epithelial cell forms wall. closed wall.Sealed with occluding junction at edges
condition caused by the accumulation of fibrofatty intimal plaques
medial wall of the respiratory segment in the nose

true or false: veins have thinner walls than their arterial counterparts.
true or false: Surfactant prevents alveolus collapse upon exhalation by increasing surface tension

true or fale: veins have a smaller lumen than arteries.
located at the dome of the nasal cavity and contains specialized olfactory mucosa
largest lymphatic vessel
bronchial arteries are branches of which main artery?
purkinje fibers are located where within endocardium
which type of artery contains elastic lamella in its tunica media
diameter of capillary (in micrometers)
tissue between alvelolar air spaces is
converts angiotensinogensecreted by the liver to angiotensinI
generates electrical impulses of the heart
the middle layer of a blood vessel. consists primarily of circumferentially arrange smooth muscle cells.
smallest arteries
conveys blood from heart to other tissues of the body and vice versa

layer within the tracheal wall that consists of c-shaped hyaline cartilage rings
main nerve supply to nose
decrease in blood pressure monitored by the kidneys results in the release of which enzyme?
involve leakage of blood past the Tunica intimaand into the spaces separating the layers of the wall. Blood forced in under maximum pressure dissects the layers apart.
layer within the tracheal wall that consists of CT that binds trachea to adjacent structures
name the distinguishing features of veins vs arteries
enzyme at the surface of alveolar endothelial cells activates angiotensin (arteriole vasoconstrictor), thus increasing blood pressure.
which type of arteries have the highest pressures?
which cells in the tunica media cells secrete elastin, collagen (30% Type I and 70% Type III) and proteoglycans.
what is the maximum number of layers of smooth muscle cells do small arteries have?
classification of the epithelium of small bronchioles
type 1 alveolar cells are connected via
these type of arteries have more muscle cells in tunica media than elastic cells
Network of Autonomic Nerves located in tunica adventitia
layer of heart consisting of cardiac muscle
connects the nasal and oral cavities to the larynx
Surfactant deficiency in some premature infants is a cause of
this portion of the respiratory system consist of airways that lead to sites of respiration within lung
how many layers of smooth muscle cells do arterioles have?
a protein secreted by the liver that inhibits serine proteinases such as elastase released by macrophages.
conveys fluids from tissues to blood
this protein hormone is a clinical marker for congestive heart failure
converts angiotensin I to angiotensin II to increase blood pressure
sites of gas exchange in lungs
layer within the tracheal wall that consists of ciliated pseudostratified epithelium and an elastic, fiber rich lamina propria
large arteries such as pulmonary artery and aorta are classified as?

the classification of type 1 alveolar cells
these type of arteries have a prominent internal elastic membrane
Irregular lumen and incomplete basal lamina. Endothelial cells are separated by large gaps
two folds of mucosa that extend into the lumen of the larynx
recesses located above vocal cords
serves as a conduit for air as well as organ of phonation
layer within the tracheal wall that consists of slight denser CT than lamina propria
small blood vessel providing direct artery-vein connection and bypassing capillaries
system of vessels contained in the tunica adventitia . Supplies blood to vessels.
portion of the respiratory system where gas exchange occurs
which cells are the progenitor cells for type 1 alveolar cells
major component of venous walls
protein hormone of the heart that acts to inhibit renin secretion and aldosterone secretion. Also vasodialates, relaxing smooth muscle cells.
innermost layer of a vessel
non cilated cells that have a characteristic dome shaped apical surface. They secrete a surface active agent that prevents luminal adhesion
