Unformatted text preview: IB 132: Human Physiology Lecture 16: Control and Purposes of Breathing Widmaier, Raff & Strang Chapter 13 Professor George A. Brooks Professor Daniela Kaufer Outline:Control of Breathing Purposes of Breathing Control of Breathing Central Command (Feed Forward) Peripheral Sensing (PaO 2 , PaCO 2 , pH a [H + ], pH m [H + ]) (Feedback) Central Sensing (PaCO 2 /pH [H + ]) (Feedback) Gas Transport & pH Regulation Todays Lecture Introduction Control and regulatory concepts Definitions Pulmonary Mechanics Break Blood Gas and H + Content and Regulation Control of Breathing Set Points PaO 2 = 100 mm Hg (Torr) PaCO 2 = 40 mm Hg (Torr) pHa = 7.38 * Predominance of hypoxic ventilatory drive. Fig. 13-21 Please, Know These #s Central Command Motor Cortex and Cingulate Gyrus Set Coarse Gain (Feedforward) Medullary Centers Integrate Higher, Local and Peripheral Signals (Feedback & Feedforward) Central Command Respiratory Center Controllers Cingulate Gyrus Respiratory Centers Inspiratory Dorsal Medulla Tractus Solitarius Expiratory Ventral Medulla Nucleus Ambiguus Nucleus Retroambiguus Cross Talk = Chemosensory neurons that respond to changes in blood pH and gas content are located in the aorta and in the carotid sinuses; these sensory afferent neurons alter CNS regulation of the rate of ventilation.
