  1. 1. What are the four pulm arterial/capillary pressures?
    • 1. Systolic 25mmHg
    • 2. Diastolic 8mmHg
    • 3. Mean 15 mmHg
    • 4. capillary 7mmHg
  2. 1. In systole PA pressure = ?
    1. RV pressure

    1. 8-10
  4. 1. Ratio of SVR to PVR is about?
    10:1
  5. 1. The pulmonary system is a______ pressure, _______ resistance, but ______ compiance system
    2. What does this allow?
    • 1. Low, Low, High
    • 2. allow total blood flow to go through lungs. < 1/10th the resistance of systemic circulation.
  6. 1. What causes low pulm R?
    • 1. Vessels are shorter and wider
    • 2. Larger amt of Arteriols
    • 3. Far less muscular arterioles
    • 4. resting tone is low
    • 5. Vessel walls are thin with less smooth muscle
  7. 1. Alveolar Vessels are?
    2. Alveolar vessel resistance is dependent on what 2 things
    • 1. capillaries and slightly larger vessels that are surrounded on all sides by alveoli.
    • 2. - Transmural pressure gradient (PTM). Diff in pressure outside vs. inside capillary
    •     - Lung volume
  8. 1. Alveolar Pressure INSIDE the vessels depend on what two things?
    • 1. - Cardiac cycle - pulsatile flow
    •     - vertical location in relation to LA - higher the position, the lower the pressure.
  9. 1. Alveolar pressure varies with?
    2. With no airflow, and glottis is open, PA = PB 0cm of H2O
    3. What is PA pressure during inspiration? Expiration?
    • 1. Respiratory cycle
    • 2. T
    • 3. negative.  positive
  10. 1. What dialates Alveolar Vessels? What does this do to resistance
    2. What increases resistance?
    • 1. High intravascular pressure and neg PA pressure. Decreases
    • 2. Increase in lung volume VL. = Stretching.
    • increase in VL causes flattening, crushing capillaries.
  11. 1. what are extra alveolar vessels?
    2. What are extra alveolar vessels more sensative too?
    3. as VL increases extra-alveolare Resistance?
    • 1. Arteries and Veins that run though lung parenchyma NOT surrounded by alveoli.
    • 2. Intrapleural pressure
    • 3. Decreases
  12. 1. PVR = ~ 1.7mmHg/L/min
    2. As pulm arterial or venous pressure rises, PVR increases or decreases?
    3. What 2 mechanisms contribute to this ability
    • 1. T
    • 2. Decreases
    • 3. Recruitment and distention of alveolar vessels
  13. 1. What is Recruitment of Alveolar vessels?
    2. What is distention?
    3. Which mechanism is most responsible for decrease in Pulm Vasc Resistance when vascular pressure is high?
    • 1. As perfusion pressure increases, capillaries that  are either closed or open but unperfused, will begin to conduct blood.
    • 2. increase in caliber = increased blood flow
    • 3. distention
  14. 1. Which pulm vascular ability is most responsible for decrease PVR at lower elevations of arterial pressure?
    1. Recruitment
  15. 1. When pt stands, where is flow the greatest?
    2. PA blood pressure lowest in the?
    3. So distribution of blood flow is affected by what 2 things
    • 1. In the bases - lowest in the apex
    • 2. posture and gravity
  16. 1. What happens in zone 1
    2. Is there perfusion in zone 1?
    3. Is there normally present a zone 1 physiological state?
    4. When would there be a zone 1 physiological occurrence?
    • 1. PA > Pa > Pv
    • 2. No
    • 3. No
    • 4. - low pulmonary pressure. ex hemorrhage, or
    •    - higher than normal PA pressure. ex. PEEP
  17. 1. Alveolar dead space occurs in what zone and why is this dead space?
    • 1. Zone 1
    • 2. Bc it is ventilated but not perfused.
  18. 1. Characteristics of Zone 2 physiological state?
    • 1. Pa > PA
    • 2. perfusion is intermittent bc during syst > alveolar, but during diastole, alveolar > diastolic pressure
    • 3. driving pressure (Pa-PA)
  19. 1. Continuous flow occurs in what zone?
  20. 1. Zone 3 flow is dependent on what factors?
    1. (Pa - Pv) arteriol - venous
  21. 1. Increase in PIP leads to what in zone 4
    1. partial extra alveolar collapse
  22. 1. lung zones are described as physiological and not anatomical?
    2. Boundaries of zones are sharp and fixed
    3. What would cause a downward shift of physiological boundaries? Upward shift?
    4. What 2 zones are normally present
    • 1. T
    • 2. false
    • 3. Increase PAlveolar.  Exercise increase Parterial
    • 4. 2 and 3
  23. 1. Zones fluctuate with?
    2. explain
    • 1. respiratory cycle and cardiac
    • 2.
    • During respiratory cycle
    • – PAlveolar becomes negative during inspiration
    • • Promoting dilation of alveolar vessels
    • – Positive during expiration
    • • During cardiac cycle pressure inside arterioles and pulmonary capillaries
    • – greatest during systole
    • • Promotes dilation of blood vessel
    • – Lowest in diastole
    • • Expect that blood flow thru alveolar vessel to be greatest when inspiration coincides with systole
  24. 1. What is HPV?
    2. How is this protective?
    • 1. Hypoxic pulmonary vasoconstriction
    • 2. low O2 causes vasocostriction to prevent perfusing areas that are not adequately ventilated.
  25. 1. Attributes of HPV
    2. what type of shunt is created?
    • 1. - occurs only in isolated tissue
    •     - does not rely on systemic hormones
    •     - PO2 directly acts on smooth muscle by inhibition of k+ channels -> open voltage Ca2+ channels = influx Ca and thus contraction
    • 2. Right to left shunt.
  26. 1. Prostaglandins are potent?
    2. Prostaglandins and Platelets
    • 1. Vasoconstrictors and vasodilators
    • 2. inhibit and cause aggregation
    • 3. may have role in bronchoconstriction.
  27. 1. What is Arachidonic acid created from
    2. what are the two pathways arachidonic acid may take
    3. what are the byproducts?
    • 1. Membain-bound phospholipids
    • 2. lipoxygenase and cycloxygenase
    • 3. lipoxygenase creates leukotriences
    • cycloxygenase creates prostaglandins and thromboxane A2
  28. 1. See phone picture for Lung Metabolism
