what gas is exiting our blood system carbon dioxide
oxygen is necessary for our cell to produce ATP
we need oxygen to turn ADP into ATP for energy
what are the main 7 things associated with the respiratory system mouth, nose, pharynx, larynx, trachea, bronchi, lungs
the pharynx is located behind mouth/nose,superior to larynx and trachea
the group of organs for gas exchanges are what system respiratory system
bronchi is plural, what is singular bronchus
air enters either through the .... or ..... mouth or nose
the nose contains special bone structures called conchae or turbinates
in the nose.. heat and moisture help to prevent the lungs from drying out
what are the three nasal conchae superior, middle and inferior
thyroid cartilage is good landmark for larynx
The larynx ends and the Trachea starts just below the cricoid cartilage
the cricothyroid membrane is located between the thyroid cartilage and cricoid cartilage
in an emergency a horizontal cut can be made where? cricothyroid membrane
when a cut is made through the trachea and a tube sutured in place this is called tracheostomy
In the larynx we have flods that vibrate to generate noise for speech
within the larynx are tow sets of folds, what are they false and true
false vocal cords are superior or inferior to the true vocal cords superior
what allows the vocal cords to vibrate as air passes connective tissue and muscle
In a flat image picture the vocal cords are shown with which on the outside and which on the inside false on the outer side and true on the inner side.
the trachea splits at the carina
when the trachae splits, it forms the left and right main brondus
bronchi split further into lobar bronchi
the right lung contains how many lobes 3, superior, middle and inferior
the left lung contains how many lobes 2, superior and interior
why is the left lung smallers because the heart
tar collects inside what of a smoker alveoli
what surrounds the alveoli capillaries
what structure increase the surface area the lungs alveoli
alveoli is where what is exchanged gases
Lobar bronchi split into bronchioles
bronchioles split into Respiratory Bronchioles
respiratory bronchioles split into alveolar ducts
alveolar ducts contain small sacs called alveoli
alveoli are surrounded by capillaries
oxidation causes a ... color to the blood red
during gas exchange, deoxigenated blood enters..... to become oxigenated blood arteriole, alveolar wall, alveolus, capillary, venule
due to particles in the air, much of the respiratory system generates mucous and have ciliated cells
what is the purpose of mucous traps particles in lungs
purpose of cilia move particles that mucous traps towards the mouth
structure inferior to the lungs diaphragm
diaphragm is composed of what muscle skeletal
contraction pulls the diaphragm inferiorly, causing inspriation
when you breathe in the diaphragm drops
asthma affects the trachea
epinephrine dialiates the trachea
