what are the three layers of the trachea, or windpipe Mucosa, Submucosa and adventitia
what is the outtermost layer of the trachea Adventitia
The branching pattern of airways is often called the ________ or ______________ _______ Bronchial or Respiratory Tree
the conducting zone consists of right and left primary bronchi
Primary bronchi enter each lung and diverge into secondary bronchi
secondary bronchia serves each lobe of the lungs
secondary bronchi branch into several orders of tertiary bronchi
tertiary bronchi ultimately branch into Bronchioles
debris must be removed by macrophages
the _______ zone begins as the terminal bronchioles feed into respiratory bronchioles that terminate in alveolar ducts within clusters of alveolar sacs, which consist of alveolie The respiratory Zone
300 million of them on average consist Alveoli
_____ ______ consists of a single layer of squamous wpithelium, type I cells, surrounded by a basal lamina Respiratory membrane
what lung is smaller left
what lung is bigger right
how many lobes does the right lung have 3
why is the right lung smaller due to the heart position
how many lobes does te left lung have 2
Each lobe has about 9-10 bronchopulmonary segments
consists largely of air spaces Lung tissue
what is comprised mostly of elastic connective tissue? Stroma
unoxygenated blood from the heart to the lungs 2 pulmonary arteries
oxygenated blood back to the left atrium 4 pulmonary veins
the lungs are ______ by parasympathetic and sympathetic motor fibers that constrict or dilate the airways, as well as visceral sensory fibers. innervated
what forms a thin, double layered serosa? Pleurae
pleura that covers the thoracic wall, superior face of the diaphragm and continues around the heart between the lungs parietal pleura
pleura that covers the external lung surface visceral pleura
the pleural cavity is filled with pleural fluid
what is hoeostatic imbalance of the lungs and pleurae?? pleurisy
inflammation of the pleurae, resluting from pneumonia Pleurisy
what are the two phases of breathing and pulmonary respiration?? inspiration and Expiration
Respiratory pressure is described relative to atmospheric pressure
what does Hg stand for Mercurey
Respiratory pressure is how many mm of mercurey 760
760mm Hg is = to 1 atm at sea level
(Ppul)is Intrapulmonary pressure
(Ppul) is the pressure in the alveoli
(Pip) is Inrapleural Pressure
(Pip) is the pressure in the pleural cavity
What pressure is always 4 mm Hg less Intrapleural
the difference between the pressures that keeps the lungs from collapsing Transpulmonary Pressure
what is homeostatic imbalance of the pressure relationships Atelectasis (lung collapse)
occurs when bronchioles become plugged and its associated alveoli absorb all of its air and collapses Atelectasis (lung collapse)
After a lung collapses and air enters the pleural cavity this is known as pneumothorax
- means.. air in
+ means air out
0 means no air in or out
a mechanical process causing gas flow into and out of the lungs according to volume changes in the thoracic cavity pulmonary ventilation
volume changes lead to pressure changes
pressure changes lead to the flow of gasses to equalize the pressure
_____ _______ states that at a constant temperature, the pressure of gas varies inversely with its volume P1V1=P2V2 Boyle's Law
P1V1= P2V2
during this the diaphram and intercostals contract quiet inspiration
quiet inspiration results in an increase in thoracic volume
accessory muscles of the neck and thorax contract, increasing thoracic volume beyond the increase in volume during quiet inspiration foced inspiration
scalenes, SCM, pec minor Neck and thorax
________ ________ is a passive process that relies mostely on elastic recoil of the lungs as the thoracic muscles relax. Quiet expiration
is an ACTIVE process relying on contraction of abdominal muscles (esp. obliques) to increase intra-abdominal pressure and depress the rib cage. Forced Expiration
what is not a factor in a healthy person Airway Resistance
________ _________ is the friction encountered by air in the airways; gas flow is reduced as airway resistance increases Airway Resistance
airway resistance is greatest at the medium-sized bronchi
this system causes vigorous constriciton of the bronchioles Parasympathetic System

surfactant is produced by type II Alveolar cells

_____ ______ _______ is the sum of all lung volumes Total Lung Capacity
tidal volume is .5lt of air or 500mL

______ _______ ______ is added to the anatomical dead space Alveolar dead space
Anatomical dead space + Alveolar dead space = Total dead space

________ _______ is the total amount of gas that flows in or out of respiratory tract in one minute Minute Ventilation
