Unformatted text preview: o Po 2 : very low levels (< 60 mm Hg) require increased ventilation Kevin Kelleher, MTC Biology 211 Study Notes Exam 2 21 o pH : falling arterial pH leads to increased ventilation (as with increased Pco 2 ) Respiratory adjustments during exercise & at high altitudes- Exercise : during exercise, breathing becomes deeper & more vigorous without significantly changing rate ( hyperpnea ) o results in increased ventilation o caused by psychic factors (anticipation), motor activation of skeletal muscles with respiratory centers, & excitation of proprioceptors- High Altitude effects: acclimatization (adaptation to decreased oxygen levels) involves increased ventilation as respiratory volumes are increased o Hemoglobin saturation with oxygen is much less than at sea level, but still sufficient for adequate oxygen delivery to tissues PAGE7...
