BIO 143 HUMAN PHYSIOLOGY REVIEW SHEET TEST 5: FALL 2012

Chapter 23: Ventilation

- Be able to list & briefly describe the 4 primary pressures that are associated with ventilation: Atmospheric Pressure, Intra-alveolar Pressure, Pleural Pressure, Transpulmonary Pressure.
- What ix external and internal respiration?
- Be familiar with why ventilation occurs (b/c of pressure gradients between alveoli and outside atm.), that air moves down a pressure gradient (high to low pressure) and why inspiration & expiration occur in terms of pressure gradients.
- Be familiar that changes in alveolar pressure creates/changes gradients, be familiar with Boyle’s Law.
- Be how volume & pressure changes allow for inspiration and expiration to occur. Understand what is going on in figure 23.13 & 14
- Be familiar with the terms elastic recoil and surface tension as they apply to the lungs. Why is surfactant important? What is Respiratory Distress Syndrome of the Newborn and why does it occur?
- Be able to describe what muscles are involved with inspiration and how they change the volume of the thoracic cavity (what happens when they contract) and how this creates air flow into the lungs; also be able to describe what muscles are involved with ACTIVE expiration and how they change the volume of the thoracic cavity (what happens when they contract) and how this creates air flow out of the lungs.
- Be familiar with the idea that expiration is normally a passive process and occurs b/c the inspiratory muscles relax.
- Be familiar with the 2 factors that affect pulmonary ventilation: lung compliance & resistance. Understand what lung compliance means, what conditions decrease lung compliance? Understand what airway resistance means and how it is related to air flow (inversely related
- Be able to differentiate between bronchoconstriction & broncodilation and how smooth muscle in the bronchioles causes either constriction or dilation to occur.
- Differentiate between

    In this experiment, several physiological parameters were observed in three patients before, during, and after moderate exercise. One of these parameters was the pulmonary airflow, which was recorded utilizing an Airflow Transducer. This device measures airflow using slight pressure differences created by the resistance of a screen inside the device. Pulmonary airflow is the rate of movement into and out of the lungs, and is directly proportional to the pressure difference of the intrapulmonary pressure and the atmospheric pressure, and inversely proportional to the resistance of the lungs (elasticity/diameter of air pathways).1 The BIOPAC program then can convert the airflow to volume of air moved. Pulmonary ventilation is the movement of air in and out of the lungs. A more specific measurement of pulmonary airflow is the minute respiratory volume, which measures how much air is moved into and out of the lungs in one minute (tidal volume*breaths per minute).2 Since both deal with a volume moved per time, they are synonymous, although the parameter is referred to as airflow in this report.15E…

    Inspiration (the process of inhaling) begins as the external intercostals and diaphragm contract. When this happens, the lungs expand. After this, negative pressure is used to facilitate respiration. So, air moves from an area of higher pressure, which is the air, to an area of lower pressure in the lungs and aveoli. During inspiration the diaphragm and intercostal muscles contract. The diaphragm moves downwards, while the intercostal muscles make the rib cage move upwards. These two processes increase the volume of the thoracic cavity and also reduces the air pressure to below atmospheric pressure allowing air to rush into the airways then into the alveoli.…
