ACTIVITY 1: Hyperventilation
A substance that dissolves in water to release hydrogen (H+) ions is called a(n) _______. ACID
Which of the following is not a regulatory mechanism for acid/base balance in the body? a.
the respiratory system
the digestive system
THE DIGESTIVE SYSTEM
The maximum pH measured during hyperventilation was _______. 7.67
Describe the normal ranges for pH and PCO2 in the blood.
The normal range for ph is 7.35-7.45 and the normal range for PCO2 is 35-45 5.
Describe what happened to the pH and the carbon dioxide in the blood with hyperventilation. With hyperventilation the ph increases and carbon dioxide decreases 6.
Explain how returning to normal breathing after hyperventilation differed from hyperventilation without returning to normal breathing. When breathing is returning to normal, for about 10secs the breath is held in order to retain CO2 before returning to normal breathing after hyperventilation to normal breathing. 7.
Describe some possible...
