Presentation Transcript
  • Extra Credit Assignment
  • Extra Credit Quiz
quick and painless review
Quick and Painless Review
  • Where is your thymus?
  • What is the difference between lymph nodules and MALT?
  • What is the difference between your lymph nodes and your spleen?
respiration overview
Respiration Overview
  • Anatomy of the Respiratory System
  • Mathematics of the Respiratory System
  • How do you evaluate malfunctions in the respiratory system?
respiratory system
Respiratory System
  • Respiratory System:


respiratory system6
Respiratory System
  • Respiratory System:


    • Receive air for breathing
    • Exchange gases (O2. CO2) with the blood
    • Expel modified air
upper respiratory tract
Upper Respiratory Tract
  • Nasal Cavity
    • Guard Hairs
    • Mucous
  • Oral Cavity
  • Pharynx
    • Posterior to Nasal and Oral Cavities
    • Cleans Air
    • Intersection of Respiratory and Digestion
upper respiratory tract9
Upper Respiratory Tract
  • Epiglottis-
    • Flap blocks food from entering the lower respiratory tract
  • Larynx
    • 9 plates of Cartilage
    • Large Chamber
    • Contains vocal cords
anatomy of the larynx11
Anatomy of the Larynx
  • Intrinsic and extrinsic muscles in larynx pull the cartilage
  • This causes the cords to move
  • Males have thicker cords
functions of the upper respiratory tract
Functions of the Upper Respiratory Tract
  • Cleans air
    • Guard hairs
    • Mucus (MALT)
    • Cilia
  • Warms air
  • Moistens air
anatomy of the lungs
Anatomy of the Lungs
  • Trachea
    • C-shaped cartilage
    • Mucociliary escalator
  • Primary Bronchi
    • Cartilage
    • Right wider than left
  • Secondary Bronchi
  • Tertiary Bronchi
    • More branches on right
mucociliary escalator
Mucociliary Escalator
  • Muscus-
    • Traps particles
  • Cilia-
    • Move particles up toward pharynx
lower respiratory tract
Lower Respiratory Tract
  • Bronchioles
    • Small – 1mm or less
    • No longer contain cartilage
    • Continue Branching
  • Terminal Bronchioles
    • Last passages before aveoli
    • Still have Cilia
  • Alveoli – where gas exchange occurs
    • Phagocytosis removes small particles
lower respiratory tract16
Lower Respiratory Tract
  • Convey air to alveoli
  • Clean air and remove particles by mucociliary elevator
  • Macrophages in aveoli phagocytize foreign particles – last line of defense

GAS EXCHANGE with Capillary Bed

Airflow in the Lungs
mechanism of airflow
Mechanism of Airflow
  • Airflow is a result in changes of pressure between two systems
    • System 1: the outer atmosphere
    • System 2: the pressure within the alveoli
  • How does pressure change within the alveoli?
mechanisms of airflow
Mechanisms of Airflow
  • How does pressure change within the alveoli?
    • Boyles Law: P  1/V

(Changes in Volume result in changes in Pressure!!!!!)

  • How does volume change within the alveoli?
mechanism of airflow21
Mechanism of Airflow
  • How does volume change within the alveoli?
  • Inspiration
    • The diaphragm expands the thoracic cavity during quiet inspiration
    • Deep inspiration is aided by the pectoralis minor, the sternocleidomastoid and the erector spinae muscles (external intercostals)
mechanism of airflow22
Mechanism of Airflow
  • Expiration
    • Quiet Breathing: Volume changes are not caused by muscular contraction, rather the elasticity of the lungs and ribs
    • Deep expiration: internal intercostals, abdominal muscles
alveolar gas exhange
Alveolar Gas Exhange
  • O2 loads into RBC; CO2 unloads into the alveoli
  • Factors involved:
    • Concentration gradients
    • Solubility in H2O
    • Membrane thickness
    • Membrane area
oxygen transport and carbon monoxide
Oxygen Transport and Carbon Monoxide
  • Oxygen is carried through the blood stream by hemoglobin
  • Carbon Monoxide binds to hemoglobin 200x better.
carbon monoxide27
Carbon Monoxide
  • Sources?
    • Car Exhaust
    • Cigarette Smoke

Chronic bronchitis, emphysema, and cancer

Over 2000 chemicals in tobacco smoke.

  • What gives the lung at the top its dark color?
carcinogens in tobacco
Carcinogens in Tobacco
  • Carcinogen: substance that increases the potential for tumor growth
  • 50 carcinogens in smoke (2 radioactive)

eg.- Nicotine, Formaldehyde

  • Implicated in 90% of lung cancers

Mechanics of Breathing, Gas Exchange, and Carbon Monoxide

  • Respiratory volumes
    • tidal volume: air inhaled or exhaled in one quiet breath
    • inspiratory reserve volume: air in excess of tidal inspiration that can be inhaled with maximum effort
    • expiratory reserve volume: air in excess of tidal expiration that can be exhaled with maximum effort
    • residual volume: air remaining in lungs after maximum expiration, keeps alveoli inflated
spirometry exercise
Spirometry Exercise
  • Each group is to measure one members tidal and expiratory reserve volume.
  • Record on front board, indicating gender.
  • After all groups are done, average total to get class average tidal and expiratory reserve volume and compare to known averages.
  • Flexible tube with camera attached
  • Used to identify blockages in bronchi and to biopsy tumors/growths

Spirometry and Bronchoscopy

  • Inflammation reaction in the lung caused by and allergen
  • Results in bronchoconstriction and sometimes suffocation
treatments for asthma
Treatments for Asthma
  • Inhalers – daily or rescue
    • Albuterol
    • Vanceril
  • Pills - daily
    • Accolade
    • Singular
  • Injection or Nebulizer - rescue
    • Ephinedrine
