Unformatted text preview: Monday, November 14, 2011 8:00 AM Chapter Sixteen Respiratory System Diffusion from high to low air into the blood Steps of Respiration Red=blood O2 and CO2 are the respiratory gasses. Everything is driven by diffusioin. NO ATP. Just concentration gradients of the gasses. Respiration Comprises 3 related functions: o Ventilation (breathing). o Gas Exchange(a)air/blood;(b)blood/tissues o Oxygen Utilization by tissues in cellular respiration. External respiration (1&2a together). o Ventilation moves air in & out of lungs for gas exchange with blood and alveoli. Internal respiration (2b&3 together). o Gas exchange between blood & tissues; O 2 used by tissues. Gas exchange passive - diffusion (v. rapid in lung). Lung Alveoli and Pulmonary Capillaries Gas exchange occurs across alveoli (300 million, 60-80 m 2 total surface area). Only 2 thin cells between lung air & blood: 1 alveolar + 1 endothelial. DIFFUSION FAST: Large SA + thin barrier Simple squamous epithelium Alvioulus- contains macrophages (killer cells). Surfactant- stops alveolar from collapsing (type I) Big surface area. (tennis court size) Thoracic Cavity 2 lungs and heart Lungs o Plurel Membrane (serous)- 2 layers with fluid in between layers. o Viseral (internal)/Parietal (external) Plural. o Plureal cavity (space between membranes) Heart o Paracardial Membrane- around heart. Visceral & parietal pleurae normally stick to each other so that lungs remain in contact with chest walls & expand & contract with thoracic cavity Physical Aspects of Ventilation Ventilation results from pressure differences brought about by changes in lung volumes Air moves from higher to lower pressure. Compliance, elasticity, & surface tension of lungs influence ease of ventilation. Intrapleural space is thin fluid layer between visceral pleura covering lungs & parietal pleura lining thoracic cavity walls Pressure difference brought by changes in lung volume (breathing in=increasing lungs) Boyles Law P = 1/V Muscles involved in Breathing Diaphram-dome shaped at rest, when contracted it flatens out. Quiet Breathing Inspiration occurs mainly because diaphragm contracts, increasing thoracic volume vertically. External intercostal muscles contribute to inspiration a little by raising ribs, increasing thoracic volume laterally. Expiration at rest is due to passive recoil. Deep Breathing Deep Inspiration involves contraction of external intercostals, plus pectoralis minor & sternocleido-mastoid muscles to elevate ribs. Forced Expiration involves contraction of internal intercostals & abdominal muscles....
