Chapter 14 - Respiration
Some terms
alveolar ventilation rate, alveolus, anatomical dead space, Boyle’s Law, bronchiole (terminal,
respiratory), bronchus, carbaminohemoglobin, carbonic anhydrase, conducting portion of
respiratory “tree”, Dalton’s Law of partial pressures, external and internal respiration, functional
reserve volume, Henry’s Law (of solubility), internal and external nares, intrapleural and
intrapulmonary pressures, laryngopharynx, larynx, minute volume, nasal conchae (turbinates),
nasopharynx, oropharynx, oxygen-hemoglobin dissociation curve, percent hemoglobin
saturation, pharynx, pleural membrane (parietal and visceral layers, pleural cavity), respiratory
membrane, tidal volume, Type I and Type II alveolar cells, vocal folds
Study suggestions
1. How is the type of epithelium found in a region (e.g. nasopharynx vs. oropharynx) related to
its function?
2. What variables are involved in the Fick equation for diffusional gas exchange? What
adaptations of the alveoli maximize diffusional gas exchange? Won’t you be happy when this
class is over and you will never have to think about the Fick equation again? (Unless you take
3. Be able to calculate partial pressures. (Dalton’s law)
4. What is “pulmonary ventilation.” How does Boyle’s law help explain this process?
5. How does intrapleural pressure compare with alveolar (intrapulmonary) during inspiration?
During expiration?
6. What is anatomical dead space? Why is it physiologically important?
7. Be very familiar with Slide #42. Know the significance of this formula:
CO2 + H20 ↔ H2CO3 ↔ H+ + HCO38. A significant amount of CO2 is transported in solution (i.e. dissolved) in the blood. O2
transport, on the other hand, requires a carrier molecule (hemoglobin). How does Henry’s law
explain the fact that O2 transport requires a carrier?
