Unformatted text preview: 9) Write the four Laws introduced in the Respiration Physiology lectures. 10) Calculate the alveolar ventilation for these conditions? Tidal Volume = 800 ml and Respiratory Rate = 10 11) Describe alveoli/capillary mismatches termed ventilation-perfusion inequalities. 12) Calculate the oxygen carrying capacity of blood under these physiological conditions: Hematocrit = 45%; Hemoglobin = 15 gm/100ml; CO = 5 L/min; Alveolar Ventilation = 4000 ml/min (1 gm hemoglobin binds 1.34-1.38 mlO 2 ). 13) Describe obstructive sleep apnea? 14) What are the major stimuli for central and peripheral chemoreceptors?...
