CO, blood volume (regulated by kidneys), resistance to flow
Calcium as a 2nd messenger
- higher outside than inside of a cell
- allows it to be a triggor to other activity throughout the body
** Ca2+ charge allows it to want to come in
**Liver, skin, kidneys (and sometimes your gut) helpt Vit. D. --> calcitrol (an active protein which increase blood calcium through the action on both kidneys & small intestine, main main action = enable the absorption of Ca 2+ in the small intestine (enables Ca2+ to be transported out of the intestine lumen & into the blood)
what is the pressure gradient that exists with breathing?
Breathing is a negative pressure situation.Where ambient pressure (760) is higher than in the lungs (750-758). Thus air moves into the lungs when the diaphragm RELAXES.
