Pressure gradients responsible for inspiration and expiration (Fig. 28-5). 2. Lung compliance. 3. Surface tension considerations. 4. Work considerations. 5. Pulmonary volumes and capacities. 6. The dead space. 7. Regulation (Fig. 27-6). 8. Pressure gradients and the diffusion of gases. 9. Review of the gas laws - Raoult's Law, Henry's Law and Dalton's Law of Partial Pressures. 10. Atmospheric versus alveolar partial pressures. 11. Diffusion of gases across the alveolar membrane. II. You will have learned the material when you can: 1. Understand how the pressure gradients moving air into and out of the lungs are created and how they function. 2. Understand what compliance is and why it is important. 3.
