Respiratory Structure-Function Relationships- Ward/CJ- 1/7/13

Diffusion happens fastest through membranes that have Large surface areas and thin barriers
Surface area is how many times greater with alveoli? 1000
The respiratory area of the lungs includes the Respiratory bronchiole, alveolar duct, alveolar sac
The area of the lungs that is not active in gas exchange is known as the Conducting zone
Pathway of diffusion from Alveoli to plamsa Alveoli, Surfactant, alveolar epithelium, interstitium, capillary endothelium, plasma
Structures that are in direct contact with the lungs Aorta, Heart, Diaphragm, Vena Cava
Explain the flow of the lymphatics in the lung Pulmonary nodes- Bronchopulmonary hilar nodes- Superior/Inferior tracheobronchial nodes- Paratracheal nodes- Bronchomediastinal trunk (or Inferior deep cervical nodes-Supraclavicular-Jugular lymph trunk)-Subclavian
Which side of subclavian gets the majority of lymph drainage? Right
