This preview shows page 1 - 2 out of 2 pages.

Volumes changes cause pressure changes, which cause air to move. Match descriptions to pressure type A. Atmospheric Pressure B. Intrapulmonary Pressure C. Intrapleural Pressure 1. Barring pneumothorax (a collapsed lung), this pressure is always lower than atmospheric pressure __c__ 2. Pressure of air outside the body__a__ 3. As this pressure decreases below atmospheric pressure, air flows into the passageways of the lungs _B__ 4. As this pressure increases over atmospheric pressure, air flows out of the lungs __B__ 5. If this pressure becomes equal to the atmospheric pressure, the lungs collapse due to air pushing on the outside of the lungs __C__ 6. Rises well over atmospheric pressure during a forceful cough __B__
