  1. Most CO2 is transported in the blood in the form of?
    Bicarbonate ion
  2. When carbon dioxide is
    carried by red blood cells it is carried in part by?
    integrins in the plasma membrane.
  3. Where would you expect to find the highest
    partial pressure of carbon dioxide?
    in the intracellular fluid
  4. The reason the gradients for carbon
    dioxide can be smaller that those for oxygen and still meet the body's gas
    exchange needs is that:
    carbon dioxide is more water‑soluble than oxygen.
  5. the respirtory center that sets the ventilation rATE IS THE
    ventral resipirtory group
  6. Expired air has a greater oxygen content
    than alveolar air because
    • alveolar air mixes with air in the anatomic dead space on its way
    • out
  7. what will have increased if the oxygen‑hemoglobin dissociation curve is shifted to the right?
    • Partial pressure of carbon dioxide is
    • increased
  8. In metabolically active tissues you would
    expect
    • the percent saturation of hemoglobin
    • will be less than it is near the lungs
  9. If the partial pressure of carbon dioxide
    is decreasing, then:
    • there is an increase in the rate of the reaction converting carbonic
    • acid into water and carbon dioxide
  10. As plasma Pco2 increases, plasma pH will ___________.
    Decrease
  11. As plasma Pco2 increases, both the rate and depth of
    respiration will ________________________.
    increase
  12. As plasma pH decreases, hemoglobin's O2 affinity will
    _________.
    decrease
  13. You begin to hyperventilate! What happens to your plasma Pco2?
    What about your plasma pH?
    decrease then increase
