Ch2 Ventilation - HCCRT

Driving Pressure The pressure difference between 2 points in a tube or vessel. P1>P2
Transairway Pressure (Pta) The pressure difference between the mouth pressure and the alveolar pressure
Transthoracic Pressure (Ptp) The pressure difference between the alveolar and the body surface pressure
Transpulmonary Pressure (Ttp) The pressure difference between the alveolar and the pleural pressure
Surface tension Condition at the surface of a liquid in contact with a gas or another liquid which causes its' surface to act as a stretched rubber membrane
Laplace's Law The distending pressure of liquid sphere is: Directly proportional to the surface tension of the liquid and Inversely proportional tot he radius of the sphere
Three natural mechanisms of the body? Pore of Kohn, Canal of Lambert, and Peduluff Effect.
Poiseuille's Law The speed of the flow of a fluid (gas or liquid) through a tube is directly proportional to the square of the diameter of the tube and the pressure upon the fluid and indirectly to the viscosity of the fluid and the length of the tube.
Static refers to... the study of matter at rest.
Dynamic Refers to... the study of matter in motion.
