Flashcards in Respiratory Physiology Review Deck (11)
The amount of air expired after maximal expiratory effort.
Forced vital capacity
Helps prevents alveolar collapse
Injection of a drug that stimulates the carotid bodies would be expected to cause:
A decrease in PCO2 of arterial blood
Which of the following is responsible for the movement of O2 from the alveoli into the blood in the pulmonary capillaries?
Has the greatest effect on the ability of blood to transport oxygen?
Amount of hemoglobin in the blood
send out regular bursts of impulses to inspiratory muscles during quiet respiration.
The main respiratory neurons
transection of the brainstem at the caudal end of the medulla.
That is where spontaneous respirations cease.
Intravenous lactic acid increases ventilation. The receptors responsible for this effect are located in the
Most of the CO2 transported in the blood is
is increased following bronchial smooth muscle contraction.
