Unformatted text preview: • V(e(ALV)) = V(e) – (ADS x RR) Physiological Dead Space (PDS) PDS = ADS + unused Alveoli TV is usually 50% of VC GAS EXCHANGE Atmospheric (ATM) • 02 = 20.93% • C02 = .03% • N2 = 79.04% Gas Exchange Due to pressure change • Barometric Pressure o @ SL = 760 mm Hg o P02 = .2093 x 760 = 1.59mm Hg Pressure gradient determines ultimate gas diffusion Hemoglobin = Hb There is an Hb – O2 dissociation curve Basically the more oxygen you get (to a point), the more hemoglobin you get 17:40 17:40...
