FUNDIS OXYGENATION

QuestionAnswer
WHAT ARE THE 3 PRINCIPLES OF RESPIRATORY PHYSIOLOGY? PULMONARY VENTILATION, RESPIRATION AND PERFUSION
WHAT IS THE FUNCTION OF THE UPPER AIRWAY? TO WARM, FILTER, AND HUMIDIFY THE AIR
WHAT IS THE FUNCTION OF THE LOWER AIRWAY? THE CONDUCTION OF AIR, MUCOCILIARY CLEARANCE, AND PRODUCTION OF SURFACTANT
WHAT OCCURS WHEN SURFACTANT PRODUCTION IS REDUCED? THE LUNG BECOMES STIFF AND THE ALVEOLI COLLAPSE
TRUE OR FALSE. THE PRESSURE WITHIN THE PLEURAL SPACE IS ALWAYS A POSITIVE PRESSURE. FALSE. THE PLEURAL SPACE IS ALWAYS A NEGATIVE PRESSURE (SUBATMOSPHERIC) WHICH HOLDS THE LUNGS IN AN EXPANDED POSITION
WHAT IS RESPIRATION? THE EXCHANGE OF GAS BETWEEN THE ATMOSPHERIC AIR IN THE ALVEOLI AND IN THE CAPILLARIES
WHAT ARE THE 2 PHASES OF THE VENTILATION PROCESS? INSPIRATION AND EXPIRATION
AT WHAT POINT DURING THE VENTILATION PROCESS IS THE AIR PRESSURE IN THE LUNGS EQUAL TO THE SURROUNDING ATMOSPHERIC PRESSURE? IMMEDIATELY BEFORE INSPIRATION
TRUE OR FALSE. WHEN THE PRESSURE IN THE LUNG DECREASES, THE VOLUME OF THE LUNG INCREASES. TRUE, BOYLE'S LAW SAYS THE VOLUME VARIES INVERSELY WITH THE PRESSURE.
NAME THE 3 ESSENTIAL FACTORS TO NORMAL FUNCTIONING OF THE RESPIRATORY SYSTEM. INTEGRITY OF THE AIRWAY SYSTEM, PROPERLY FUNCTIONING ALVEOLAR SYSTEM, AND PROPERLY FUNCTIONING CARDIOVASCULAR AND HEMATOLOGICAL SYSTEM
WHICH PHASE OF THE VENTILATION SYSTEM IS A PASSIVE PHASE? EXPIRATION
INCOMPLETE LUNG EXPANSION OR THE COLLAPSE OF THE ALVEOLI WHICH PREVENTS PRESSURE CHANGES AND GAS EXCHANGE IN THE LUNGS IS CALLED AN ______. ATELACTASIS
