True or False
Control of respiration is also influenced by sensors in the lung
Which type of receptors in the smooth airway muscle transduce pressure conditions inside the airway
Stretch receptors in the smooth airway muscle transduce pressure conditions inside the airway. They transmit this information to which respiratory center?
Dorsal respiratory center
Stretch receptors in the smooth airway muscle transduce pressure conditions inside the airway. They transmit this information to the dorsal respiratory center (respiratory pacemaker) along which nerves?
Vagus nerves (CN X)
Which reflex prevents alveolar overdistension?
Hering-Breuer inflation reflex
How does the Hering-Breuer inflation reflex prevent alveolar overdistension?
Stops inhalation when lung volume is too large
At which lung inflation volume does Hering-Breuer Inflation Reflex "turn off" the dorsal respiratory center?
When lung inflation is> 1.5 L above FRC
(x3 normal Vt)
True or False
The Hering-Breuer Inflation Reflex is not active during normal inspiration
Which reflex is just the opposite of the Hering-Breuer Inflation Reflex and helps prevent atelectasis by stimulating the patient to take a deep breath When lung volume is too small
Hering-Breuer Deflation Reflex
Stimulation of which receptors causes tachypnea?
J receptors are also known as:
Pulmonary C Fiber Receptors
The J receptors are activated by things that Jam traffic in the pulmonary vasculature, such as
Which reflex causes a newborn baby to take her first breath?
Paradoxical reflex of Head
