Flashcards in Resistance and Compliance concepts Deck (11):

1

## Resistance varies with what in regards to an ETT?

### volume of gas passing through the tube per unit time

2

## what is importance in determing resistance?

### flow (V)

3

## The ETT causes an increase work in breathing due to ?

### small diameter and length

4

## what law is associated with resistance and gas flow?

### hagen-poiseuille

5

## what is formula associated with laminar flow resistance?

### P = (L x v x V) / r^4

6

##
True or false. In Laminar flow, Resistance indirectly proportional to flow rate

### false. directly proportional

7

##
true or false. In turbulent flow, Resistance directly proportional to square of flow rate

### true

8

## what formula is associated with turbulent flow resistance

### P = (L x V^2 x K)/ r^5

9

## What is the measure of distensibility?

### compliance

10

## what is the formula for compliance?

### C = V/P units are ml/cmH2O
