|What do the waste products of anaerobic metabolism do to the body?
|Makes it more acidic.

|What is the vulnerable element of the cell?

|What can allow substances into the cell that should not be there (like toxins) and interfere with the regulation of water?
|an ineffective cell membrane
|True or false: A single cell's function can not be disrupted by illness or injury.
|False, it CAN be distrupted
|inhaled air contains mostly what?
|what is the percentage of oxygen and nitrogen we inhale in one breath?
|oxygen 21% Nitrogen 79%
|The contraction of oxygen in the air we breath in is referred to as what?
|The fraction of inspired oxygen.
|FiO2 Is what?
|Fraction of inspired oxygen.
|refers to the combination of the respiratory and cardiovascular system.
|What are the main functions of the cardiopulmonary system?
|to deliver oxygen and nutrients to the cells and to remove waste products from the cells.
|Moving air in and out of the chest needs an open pathway, this pathway is referred to as what?
|There are a number of potential airway challenges that occur with disease and trauma what are they?
|upper airway (above the trachea), infection ( like croup), or by trauma (burns causing soft tissue of the larynx to swell.
|the volume of air moved in one cycle of breathing
|the amount of air breathed in during each respiration multiplied by the number of breaths per minute.
|dead air space
|air that occupies the space between the mouth and alveoli but that does not actually reach the area of gas exchange.
|When does respiratory dysfunction occur?
|Anytime minute volume is interfered with.
|What is the seat of respiratory control?
|What is Medulla Oblongata?
|a section of the brain which is the seat of respiratory control.
|Name things that can affect the medulla oblongata:
|Medical events such as stroke or infections, Toxins and drugs such as narcotics, brain trauma and intracranial pressure, spinal injuries and other neurological disorders.
|slight space between the lung tissue and chest wall.
|Is there fluid is the pleural space?
|Yes a small amount
|How is ventilation activates?
|By changing pressure with in
|What is the purpose of the fluid in the pleural space?
|the fluid both lubricates the space to reduce friction of movement and helps the lung to adhere to the inside of the chest wall.
|Another name for low oxygen
|another way to say high carbon dioxide
|Chemical sensors in the brain and blood vessels that identify changing levels of oxygen and carbon dioxide.
|Water is permeable to anything in the body that is semipermeable
|What does Lysosome do?
|Cleans out the bad stuff in the cell
|Cellular function using O2 to produce APT
|Cellular function not using oxygen
|creates much less energy and more waste. Body becomes acid
|breaks down in to cacti acid
|The respiratory system and the cardiovascular system work together to create the word
|Cardiopulmonary System works together to:
|create oxygen, distribute to cells, remove CO2
|it is the u shaped bone that sets at the top of the trachea. It is not attached to anything
|What type of muscle is around the bronchiole?
|If a wall of the thorax (chest) is compermised due to (puncture wounds or rib factures
|Medulla oblongata sits at the base of the Braine and it controls automatic function such as:
|breathing, digestion and heart rate
|If the wall of the thorax is compromised due to a puncture or a fractured rib the ability to inhale and exhale is impacted and minute volume increases or decreases?
|Decreased or reduced.
|air or blood accumulating in chest
|Pleural Space can compromise what?
|Red blood cells
|what does hemoglobin do
|it acts as Velcro for CO2 and O2 to travel on.
|Blood dysfunction: Less blood
|Less gas exchange
|What happens when there is loss of tone in the blood vessels?
|vessels loss ability to constrict and dilate, pressure drops
|what is the cause of loss of tone?
|trauma, infections, allergic reactions
|What does the mass cell release?
|What happens when the mass cell releases histamine
|dilation of blood vessels, bronchial constriction, blood pressure drops, stop breathing
|What is permeability?
|Capillaries leak fluid out of their walls
|The fluid between the cell and the vessels
|To much fluid in the interstitial space can cause what?
|Do not lay your patient flat down if they have severe edema because:
|They will drown in their own fluid
|Regular delivery of O2 and nutrients to the cell and removal of waste products.
|break down of system, this can result in death of the patient.
|Inadequate tissue perfusion
|What happens in compensated shock?
|HR goes up, BP is normal, RR is up, CRT is normal or slightly delayed
|HR is up, BP is down, RR is up and CRT is delayed
|HR down, BP down, RR down, delayed
|60% of your body weight is made up of what?
|***The brighter the blood the closer to the opening. The darker the blood the further away from the opening
|the pressure exerted by a liquid as a result of its potential energy.
|the volume pumped out of one ventricle of the heart in a single beat.
|chemical sensor in the brain and blood vessels that identify changing levels of oxygen and carbon dioxide
|Plasma oncotic pressure

|Systemic vascular resistance (SVR)
|The pressure in the peripheral blood vessels that the heart must overcome in order to pump blood into the system.

|the amount of blood ejected from the heart in 1 min (heart rate X stroke volume.
|V/Q Match ( Ventilation/perfusion match )
|Thi simplies that teh aveoli are supplied with enough air and that the air in the alveoli is matched with sufficient blood in the pulmonary capillaries to permit optimum exchange of O2 and CO2
