  47. Pulmonary Surfactant
    A mixture of phospholipids and protein that coats the alveoli and smallest bronchioles and prevents them from collapsing when one exhales
  48. Alveolar Macrophages (Dust Cells)
    • Most abundant cells in lungs
    • Wander the lumens of the alveoli and connective tissue between them
    • Keep the alveoli free of debris by phagocytizing dust particles that escape the mucus in higher parts
  49. Respiratory Membrane

  54. Reduction of Friction
    Pleural fluid acts as a lubricant that enables the lungs to expand and contract with minimal friction
  55. Creation of Pressure Gradient
    The pleurae play a role in the creation of one that expands the lungs when one inhales
  56. Compartmentalization
    The pleurae, mediastinum, and pericardium compartmentalize the thoracic organs and prevent infections of one organ from spreading easily to neighboring organs
  57. Smooth Muscle of Lungs
    Adjusts the diameter of the airway and affects the speed of airflow, but it does not expand or shrink the lungs or create the airflow
  58. Air Flows In
    • Increase the volume and lower the pressure in the thoracic cavity
    • External intercostals raise up, widen thoracic cavity
    • Diaphragm descends and increases depth of thoracic cavity
  59. Air Flows Out
    Reduce thoracic volume and raise pressure
  60. Forced Expiration
    • Internal intercostals depresses ribs 1-11, narrow thoracic cavity
    • Diaphragm ascends and reduces depth of thoracic cavity
  61. Neural Control of Breathing
    • Depends on repetitive stimuli from the brain
    • Ceases if the nerve connections to the thoracic muscles are severed or if the spinal cord is severed high on the neck
    • Skeletal muscles cannot contract without nervous stimulation
    • Involves the well-orchestrated action of multiple muscles, requiring a central coordinating mechanism
  62. 2 Breathing Control Methods of Brain
    • Cerebral and conscious, enabling us to inhale or exhale at will
    • Unconscious and automatic
  63. Autonomic, unconscious cycle of breathing
    • Controlled by 3 pairs of respiratory centers in the reticular formation of the medulla oblongata and pons
    • One of each on the right and left sides of brainstem
    • Ventral respiratory group
    • Dorsal respiratory group
    • Pontine respiratory group
  64. *****Ventral Respiratory Group
    • Primary generator of the respiratory rhythm
    • -Receives input from the dorsal one to modify
    • An elongated nucleus in the medulla with 2 commingled webs of neurons
    • -Inspiratory and expiratory neurons
    • -Each form a reverberating neural circuit
    • Controls the automatic, unconscious cycle of breathing
  65. Ventral Respiratory Group: Inspiratory Neurons
    • In quiet breathing, it fires for about 2 seconds at a time
    • Issues nerve signals to intergrating centers in the spinal cord
    • Output from the spinal centers travels by phrenic nerves
    • From intercostal nerves to the external intercostal muscles
    • Contraction of these muscles enlarges the thoracic cage causing inspiration
    • As long as these are firing, the inhibit the expiratory neurons
  66. Ventral Respiratory Group: Expiratory Neurons
    • Inhibit inspiratory neurons
    • Elastic recoil of the thoracic cage expels air from the lungs
    • Normally last 3 seconds
  67. Dorsal Respiratory Group

    • Adapts breathing to special circumstances
  69. Central Chemoreceptors
    • Brainstem neurons that respond to changes in the pH of the cerebrospinal fluid
    • Concentrated on each side of the medulla oblongata
    • pH reflects the CO2 level in the blood
    • By regulating respiration to maintain a stable pH, the respiratory centers also ensure a stable blood CO2 level
  70. Peripheral Chemoreceptors

    • -Sensory fibers enter the medulla and synapse with neurons of the DRG
  71. Stretch Receptors
    • Found in the smooth muscle of the bronchi and bronchioles and in the visceral pleura
    • Respond to inflation of lungs and signal the DRG by vagus nerves

  73. Irritant Receptors
    • Nerve endings amid the epithelial cells of the airway
    • Respond to smoke, dust, pollen, chemical fumes, cold air, and excess mucus
    • Transmit signals by way of vagus nerves to the DRG
    • DRG returns signals to the respiratory and bronchial muscles
    • Results in shallower breathing, breath-holding, or coughing
  74. Alveolar Ventilation
    • Air that actually enters the alveoli becomes available for gas exchange
    • In a state of relaxation, parasympathetic stimulation keeps airway somewhat constricted, minimizing dead space, ventalating more alveoli
    • In a state of arousal, sympathetic nervous system dilates the airway, increasing airflow
  75. Anatomical Dead Space
    • The conducting division where air cannot exchange gases with blood
    • Typically about 1mL per pound of body weight
    • In some diseases, it can be greater because some alveoli lack blood flor or because the pulmonary membrane is thickened by edema or fibrosis
  76. Physiological Dead Space
    The sum of anatomical dead space and any pathological alveolar dead space that may exist
  77. ******Air
    Consists of about 78.6% nitrogen, 20.9% oxygen, 0.04% carbon dioxide
  78. Alveolar Gas Exchange
    • Air in the alveolus is in contact with the film of water covering the alveolar epithelium
    • Oxygen must dissolve in the water and pass through the respiratory membrane separating the air from the bloodstream to get in the blood
    • Carbon dioxide must pass the other way and diffuse out of the water film into the alveolar air to leave the blood
    • Back-and-forth traffic of O2 and CO2 across the respiratory membrane

  81. Carbon Dioxide
    Transported in 3 forms: carbonic acid, carbamino compounds, and dissolved gas
  82. Carbonic Acid
    90% is hydrated to form this which then dissociates into bicarbonate and hydrogen ions
  83. Carbamino Compounds
    • 5% binds to amino groups of plasma proteins and hemoglobin to form this
    • Carbon dioxide does not compete with oxygen because CO2 and O2 bind to different sites on a hemoglobin molecule
    • -Oxygen to heme moiety and CO2 to polypeptide chains
    • Hemoglobin can transport both at the same time
  84. Dissolved Gas
    • 5% of CO2 is carried in the blood by this
    • Carbonated soft drinks and sparkling wines
  85. *******Carbon Dioxide Loading
    • Aerobic respiration produces a molecule of CO2 for every molecule of O2 it consumes
    • CO2 diffuses into the bloodstream, where it is carried in 3 forms
    • Most of it reacts with water to form bicarbonate
    • -Occurs slowly in the blood plasma, but faster in the RBCs where it's catalyzed by the enzyme carbonic anydrase
    • -Most common form
    • Chloride-bicarbonate exchanger pumps most of the HCO3- out of RBC in exchange for Cl- from the blood plasma
  86. 4 Factors of Adjustment of Oxygen for Individual Tissues
    • Ambient PO2
    • Temperature
    • The Bohr effect
    • BPG
  87. Ambient PO2
    • Since an active tissue consumes oxygen rapidly, this of its tissue fluid remains low
    • A low one releases more oxygen
  88. Temperature
    • When it rises, it promotes oxygen unloading
    • Active tissues are warmer and extract more oxygen from the blood passing through them
  89. Bohr Effect
    • Active tissues generate extra CO2, which raises the H+ concentration and lowers the pH of blood
    • Hydrogen ions weaken the bond between hemoglobin and oxygen, promoting oxygen unloading
    • Less pronounced at high PO2 present in lungs, pH has little effect on pulmonary oxygen
    • More pronounced at low PO2 present in systemic capillaries
  90. *******BPG
    • Erythrocytes have no mitochondria and meet their energy needs by anaerobic fermentation
    • Binds to hemoglobin and promotes oxygen unloading
    • Elevated body temperature stimulates this sythesis, as do thyroxine, growth hormone, testosterone, and epinephrine
    • All of these hormones promote oxygen unloading to the tissues
    • Ereythrocytes low in it do not unload 02 very well
  91. Squamous-Cell Carcinoma

    • Originates in the main bronchi but invades the mediastinum and metastasizes quickly to other organs
  94. Lung Cancer
    • Over 90% of tumors originate in the mucous membranes of large bronchi
    • As the tumor invades the bronchial wall and grows around it, it compresses the airway and may cause collapse of more distal parts of the lung
    • Growth of tumor produces a cough with blood

  142. Cephalic Phase
    • The stage in which the stomach responds to the sight, smell, taste, or thought of food
    • Sensory and mental inputs converge on the hypothalamus, which relays signals to the medulla oblongata
    • Vagus nerve fibers stimulate the enteric nervous system of the stomach
    • Stomach stimulates gastric secretion
  143. Gastric Phase
    • A period in which swallowed food and semidigested protein activate gastric activity
    • Stretches the stomach and raising pH contents
    • Stimulated by acetylcholine (parasympathetic nerve fibers), histamine (paracrine secretion), and gastrin (enteroendocrine G cells in pyloric glands)
    • -Stimulate parietal cells to secrete HCl and intrinsic factor
    • Chief cells secrete pepsinogen in response to gastrin
    • Positive feedback loop
    • -Protein -> amino acids -> G cells -> more gastrin
  144. Intestinal Phase
    • A stage in which the duodenum responds to arriving chyme and moderates gastric activity through hormones and nervous reflexes
    • Stretching of duodenum accentuates vagovagal reflexes that the stomach, and peptides and amino acids in the chyme stimulate G cells to secrete more gastrin that stimulates the stomach more
    • Trigger enterogastric reflex
  145. Liver
    • Secretes bile
    • 4 lobes
    • Round ligament carries blood from umbilical cord to the liver of a fetus
    • Hepatic portal vein and bile travel through lesser omentum
  146. Hepatic Portal Vein

    • Deliver oxygen and other materials to the liver
  148. Gallbladder
    • Store and concentrates bile
    • Simple columnar epithelium
    • When waste products become concetranted, they may form gallstones
    • Biles enters by filling the bile duct, then overflowing into it
    • Between meals, it absorbs water and electrolytes from bile and concentrates it
  149. Pancreas
    • Spongy retroperitoneal gland posterior to the greater curvature of the stomach
    • Endocrine and exocrine gland
    • -Pancreatic islets secrete insulin and glucagon
    • Has an accessory duct that allows juices to be released into duodenum even while bile is not
    • Trypsinogen, chymotrypsinogen, and procarboxypeptidase
  150. Trypsinogen
    • When secreted into the itnestinal lumen, it is converted to trypsin by enterokinase
    • Autocatalytic

    • Acetylcholine
    • Cholecystokinin
    • Secretin
  155. Acetylcholine
    • Coming from the vagus and enteric nerves
    • Stimulates the pancreatic acini to secrete their enzymes even durn cephalic phase of gastric control, before food is swallowed
    • Enzymes remain stored in pancreatic acini and ducts in preparation for release later when chyme enters the duodenum
  156. Cholecystokinin
    • Secreted by the mucosa of the duodenum and proximal jejunum
    • In response to fats in the small intestine
    • Stimulates the pancreatic acini to secrete enzymes
    • Induces contractions of the gallbladder and relaxation of the hepatopancreatic sphincter, discharging bile into the duodenum
  157. Secretin
    • Produced in response to the acidity of chyme from the stomach
    • Stimulates the ducts of both the liver and pancreas to secrete a lot of sodium bicarbonate
    • In pancreas, this flushes the enzymes into the duodenum
    • Sodium bicarbonate buffers the HCl arriving from the stomach
    • Carbonic acid breaks down to CO2 and H2O
    • -CO2 is absorbed in the blood and exhaled
    • Salt water is left in small intestine
  158. Duodenum
    • Receives the stomach contents, pancreatic juice, and bile
    • Stomach acid is neutralized here
    • Fats are physically broken up by the bile acids

    Secrete an abundance of bicarbonate-rich mucus that neutralizes stomach acid and shields the mucosa from its erosive effects
  165. Contractions of Small Intestine Functions
    • Mix chyme with intestinal juice, bile, and pancreatic juice, allowing these fluids to neutralize acid and digest nutrients more effectively
    • Churn chyme and bring it into contact with the mucosa for contact digestion and nutrient absorption
    • Move residue toward the large intestine
  166. Segmentation
    • A movement in which stationary ringlike constrictions appear at several places along the intestne and then relax as new constrictions form elsewhere
    • Most common type of intestinal contraction
    • Churn the contents
    • Causes slow progression of the chyme toward the colon
    • Intensity of contractions is modified by nervous and hormonal influences
    • Declines when most nutrients have been absorbed, peristalsis begins

    • 0.8L is absorbed by the large intestine
    • 0.2L for fecal output
  168. Diarrhea
    • Occurs when the large intestine absorbs too little water
    • When the intestine is irritated by bacteria and feces pass through too quickly for adequate reabsorption, or when the feces contain abnormally high concentrations of a solute that opposes osmotic absorption of water
  169. Constipation
    • Occurs when fecal movement is slow
    • Too much water is reabsorbed
    • Feces becomes hardened
    • Can result from a lack of dietary fiber, exercise, emotional upset, or laxative abuse
