- -Pulmonary Ventilation
- -External Respiration
- -Transport of Respiritory Gases
- -Internal Respiration
What is Pulmonary Ventilation?
Breathing, moving air in and out
What is External Respiration?
Movement of O2 from the lungs to the blood and fromthe blood to the lungs
What happens in the transport of respiratory gases?
O2 is transported from the lungs to the tissue cells of the body and CO2 is transfered from the tissue cells to the lungs
How is the transport of respiratory gases accomplished?
By the cardiovascular system using blood as a transporting fluid
What is Internal Respiration?
Movement of O2 from the blood to the tissue cells and CO2 from the tissue cells to the blood
Respiratory Muscles include:
Diaphram and other muscles that promote ventilation
