inspiration involves muscular contractions and expiration is passive
In quiet, resting breathing (diaphragmatic breathing)
the common passageway shared by the respiratory and digestive systems is the
all of the above
the----- ligaments/chords extend between the thyroid cartilag and the arythenoid/ corniculate cartilages.
inspiration and expiration involve muscular contractions
In labor or forced breathing( coarced breathing)
dominated by smooth muscle
the actual sites of gas exchange within the lungs are
volume is the amount of air you move into or out of your lungs during a single respiratory cycle under resting conditions.
bicarbonate ions
most of the carbon dioxide in the blood is transported as
secondary bronchi supply air to the -------- of the lungs.
they are equal
at the start of the respiratory cycle (before taking a breath, no air is moving), the relationship between the intrapulmonary and atomspheric pressure is that
smallest of airways
serous membrane
increase the partial pressure of oxygen
carbon dioxide is more soluble in water than oxygen is. To get the same amount of oxygen to dissolve in plasma as carbon dioxide, you would have to
friction rub noted in the middle lobe
when charting an assessment about an abnormality heard when listening to the left lung with your stethoscope, all of the following would be correct, except
intrapulmonary pressure- greater
breathing out
atmospheric pressure-greater
breathing in
increaed surface tension in the water lining the alveoli
damage to the type II cells of the lungs would result in
create turbulence in the air so as to trap small particulates in mucus
the function of the nasal conchae is to
the volume of the lungs decreases with expiration
air moves out of the lungs because
the pressure of the gas will decrease
according to boyle's law, if the volume of a gas increases,
inspiratory reserve volume
the volume of air that can be forcefully inhaled on top of a normal inspiration is termed.
difficulty clearing mucous from the airways
