Decellularized Case Study

decellularized. Mouse, rat, goat, sheep, pig, non-human primate and human lung have also been successfully decellularized 2. Which ECM proteins have been found to be found in less amounts (or even damaged) in decellularized lung tissue? What might be the consequence of such alterations from normal tissue? Collagen Type I, IV, elastin and, fibronectin. With the alteration of the normal tissues the lung could lack key qualities that allow the lung to complete its function. 3. Which cells/cell lines have...

ventilating A.W. • Air escaped from the lung into the pleural space. Eventually, enough air collected in the pleural space to cause the mediastinum to shift twoard the right. The collapsed left lung, increased intrapleural pressure, and rightward shift make it difficult to ventilate A.W. 2. Interpret A.W.’s ABG’s • Significant respiratory acidosis with profound hypoxemia. A.W. is near death. 3. What is the reason for A.W.’s ABG results? • 70% of her right lung is collapsed and is not taking part...

aEmphysema Emphysema is a long-term lung disease that results in the destruction of the alveolar walls. Many individuals have both bronchitis, which involves a long term couch with mucus, and emphysema. This condition is often referred to Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease or COPD. People with this disease do not get enough oxygen and suffer buildup of carbon dioxide in their blood. In normal breathing, air is drawn in through the bronchi and into the alveoli, which are tiny sacs surrounded...

Physioex 8 Exercise 7

respiratory system functioning better or worse than it did in the previous activity? Explain why. The breathing is more shallow and incomplete. The lungs were not able to inhale or exhale as much as in activity 2. 3. What does the air flow tube simulate in the human body? The trachea. 4. What could be some possible causes of reduction in air flow to the lungs? An allergic reaction could cause the trac to swell, restricting the flow of air. An obstruction could also block the trachea decreasing or blocking...

Rules of the Road

Rules of the Road Naomi Pelton HS130: Anatomy and Physiology II Unit #4 Assignment Kaplan University May 11, 2013 As we journey from the right femoral artery to the lower lobe of the right lung, we see many amazing sights. Starting at the femoral vein which is located in the upper right thigh and pelvic region of the body and runs close to the femoral artery. The femoral vein returns blood in the leg to the heart via the iliac vein. As we go north pass through the external and common iliac...

Zoo Respiration

and circulation (also to maintain cells themselves) Air breathers have adapted specialized invaginations of the body to “take in” air Ventilation-mechanisms to move air into and out of the body Evaginations (gills) for water breathing Invaginations (lungs and tracheae) for air Types of respiratory organs Direct diffusion (cutaneous respiration) protozoa, sponges, cnidarians, some worms Possible because these animals have large areas relative to their mass (and all cells are close to the outer surface)...

Fantastic Voyage

time for a fantastic voyage through this female’s right femoral vein to the lobe of the lower lung to document the “Battle of the Lung!” The course is going to be charted starting with the right femoral vein, passing through the external iliac, then the common iliac vein, head through the inferior vena cava, right atrium, right ventricle, pulmonary artery, and reaching the right lower lobe of the lung. (Innerbody, 2012) This will be exciting! The start of this fantastic journey is through...

harm our health typically on hot, sunny days when ozone can reach unhealthy levels. Even relatively low levels of ozone can cause health effects.  People with lung disease, children, older adults, and people who are active outdoors may be particularly sensitive to ozone.  Children are at greatest risk from exposure to ozone because their lungs are still developing and they are more likely to be active outdoors when ozone levels are high, which increases their exposure.  Children are also more likely...

Fantastic Voyage

Brandie and today we will be going on a “Fantastic Voyage” through the body of a healthy female who has been feeling under the weather. I was just informed that the female’s body has been invaded by a bacterium that affects the lower right lobe of the lung. I have currently been assigned to pilot the invasion and do a live report on my findings. Before we get started on our journey, I would like for you to meet Ms. Dazzle my mini-submarine. Our route from here will be to enter the body by injection into...
