3

2

The left lung has ____lobes

2

3

The _______ and ______ are the major muscles of inspiration

diaphragm and external intercostals

4

What is perfusion?

Blood flow second to ventilation, distribution of blood flow at the alveolar level to allow echange of O2 and CO2

5

What is diffusion?

ventilation, moving air into the lungs and distributing air within the lungs to gas exchange unils (alveoli) for maintaining of O2 and removal of CO2

6

The _______ and ______ are the accessary muscles of inspiration

sternocleidomastoid and scalene muscles

7

What are the accessary muscles of expiration?

abdominal and internal intercostal muscles

8

What is Total lung capacity?

how much air you can inhale in maximum inspiration effort

9

What is vital capacity?

amount of air that can be expelled in resting state (exhale)

10

What is functional residual capacity/ volume?

after exhalation, how much air left in alveoli to keep them open

11

What is inspiratory capacity?

volume of gas that can be taken in in a full inhale

12

What are the neurological controls of ventilation?

respiratory center (medulla-primary and pons-secondary)

13

What are the chemical controls of ventilation?

pH, O2, CO2

14

What are the mechanical controls of ventilation?

15

What is the V/Q ratio?

Ventilation/ Perfusion ratio, matching adequate volume of air in alveoli to adequate pulmonary blood flow

Right, if there is a left shift it means that Hg has a high affinity to O2 and is reluctant to let it go to the tissues

hyperventilation

47

What would complete compensation look like?

both CO2 and HCO3 are abnormal in the same direction and pH is within normal range

48
