  1. The process of moving air in and out of the lungs
  2. What is the main function of the lungs?
    to supply O2 to the body and remove CO2.
  3. Inadequate ventilation or increased work of breathing can result from?
    Disease or unhealthy lung
  4. Normal ventilation is a cyclical activity of ?
    inspiration and expirattion phases.
  5. During normal ventilation the ______ removes CO2 and supplies O2 to meet the metabolic needs.
    Tidal Vomlume (Vt)
  6. The reserve to meet increased ventilatory demands, such as from exercise comes from?
    insiratory reserve volume and expiratory reserve volume.
  7. IRV
    inspiratory reserve volume
  8. ERV
    expiratory reserve volume
  9. Comprise the vital capacity
    IRV and ERV
  10. VC
    vital capacity
  11. Ventilation can be related to the following equation of motion for the Resp. Sys.
    Pressure= (Volume/Compliance)+(resistance x Flow)
  12. = Force generated by the respiratory muscles during inspiration

  26. difference between two pressures is called?
    pressure gradient
  27. Important pressure gradients
    Transrespiratory, transpulmonary, and transthoracic
  28. this gradient pressure causes gas flow in and out of the lungs

  45. Distention of the lungs are needed for?
  46. These are the forces opposing lung inflation.
    Elastic and frictional forces
  47. oppsing forces that involve the tissues of lungs and thorax, and surface tension in the alveoli
    elastic forces
  48. resistance caused by gas flow and tissue movement during breathing. An opposing force on inflation of the lungs
    Frictional forces
  49. What are the four lung volumes
    Tidal volume, Inspiratory reserve volume, expiratory reserve volume, residual volume
