Anterior spinal roots are motor, posterior sensory Bell Magende's Law
At constant temperature, a volume of gas varies inversely with pressure: V/P Boyle's Law
At constant pressure, a volume of gas varies directly with absolute pressure: V*P Charles' Law
Solubility of gas in a liquid is proportional to the pressure of the gas Henry's Law

Cardiac output is directly proportional to diastolic filling: CO*filling Starling's Law
Limits respiratory excursion via the vagus nerve Hering Breuer's Law
Carbon dioxide diffuses out of the cell into the... capillary
Carbon dioxide is transported via 3 forms dissolved carbon dioxide in the blood (7%), in combination with hemoglobin (23%), and as bicarbonate ions (70%)
How is bicarbonate formed? when carbon dioxide enters the red blood cell and combines with water via carbonic anhydrase to form carbonic acid, which dissociates into hydrogen and bicarbonate ions.

Respiration is stimulated by an increase in? PCO2, H, and low PO2
Respiration is inhibited by a decrease in? PCO2, H, and high PO2
How does one with diabetes mellitus regulate metabolic acidosis through respiration? There is an increase in ketone bodies, respiration is stimulated, called Kussmaul's breathing, causing a "blowing off" of CO2 thus lowering the hydrogen concentration.
How does the body balance metabolic alkalosis such as caused by vomiting through respiration? hydrogen concentration is lowered, so respiration is inhibited which causes an increase in the PCO2 and thus increases the blood hydrogen concentration.
Hyperventilation causes respiratory alkalosis, How? low hydrogen concentration since there is a low PCO2. Rebreathing expired air increases PCO2 and returns the blood pH to normal
Respiratory acidosis is caused by... low pH of blood due to hypoventilation
