BIO 141 EXAM 3 RESPIRATORY SYSTEM Conducting division – responsible for transporting gas between the outside of the body and deep inside the lungs  Nose/Nasal cavity o Warms and humidifies air with surrounding capillaries o Cleans air by trapping particles in mucus o Contains chemoreceptors (sense of smell)  Pharynx o Back of mouth/upper portion of throat o Warms, humidifies, and cleans air  Larynx o Thick cartilage at upper front portion of throat; also contains vocal cords o Keeps food/drink out of lungs  Trachea o Hollow tube from bottom of larynx to lungs o Cleans the air with cilia that move debris in mucus up away from the lungs to be swallowed  Bronchial Tree o Primary bronchus  Secondary bronchus  Tertiary bronchus  Bronchioles  Terminal bronchioles  Respiratory bronchioles o Hollow tubes that transport air to and from specific regions of lungs Respiratory division – allows gases to diffuse between the air you inhale and the blood (gas exchange)  Alveoli o Bundles of one-cell thick hollow sacs surrounded by capillaries where gas exchange occurs o Respiratory membrane: where cells of alveolus meet cells of capillary wall; where gas exchange occurs Surfactant – chemical secreted by cells of alveoli that decreases water molecule attraction (H bonds); prevents collapsing  Infant Respiratory Distress Syndrome: deficiency of surfactant in infants that makes it hard for them to breathe  TREATMENT  administering surfactant and hormones that stimulate production Pressure – amount of force something pushes against something else  Atmospheric  Intrapulmonary 1. When atmospheric pressure is equal to intrapulmonary pressure = NO AIRFLOW 2. When atmospheric pressure is higher = INHALE 3. When atmospheric pressure is lower = EXHALE Volume – amount of space inside of a container BOYLE’S LAW = as the volume of a gas increases, the pressure decreases Diaphragm - a bell shaped muscle forming the floor of your thoracic cavity that controls respiration  Contraction (inhalation) = bulges downward and outward; volume increases and pressure in chest drops  Relaxation (exhalation) = pushes upwards; volume in chest decreases and pressure increases * During forceful breathing, abdominal and pectoral muscles assist diaphragm In between the visceral and parietal pleura  is the: Pleural cavity: contains pleural fluid that causes V & P to stick together; lungs stick to chest wall Respiratory control center – the circuit of neurons in the base of the brain that control the rate and depth of breathing  Medulla oblongata/pons  Motor neurons innervate diaphragm to contract  OTHER NEURONS o Emotion neurons in brain (breathing heavy when excited) o Proprioceptors in joints (when exercising breathing increases) o Chemoreceptors in arteries (senses O2, CO2, and H blood levels) CARBONIC ACID CHAIN  When we are at rest, concentrations of molecules are fairly stable  If there is more of one chemical, the chain will run one direction and decrease the chemical that is plentiful Exercising  CO2 increases  reaction runs to the right increase H ions/bicarbonate  Hypercapnia: too much CO2 in the blood  Acidosis: too much H ions in blood (pH decreases)  AFTER THIS: respiratory control center responds by increasing breathing and chain will run to the left Breathe too rapidly  CO2 decreases  reaction runs to left  increase CO2  Hypocapnia: not enough CO2 in the blood  Alkalosis: not enough H ions in blood (pH increases)  AFTER THIS: respiratory control center will decrease breathing rates and chain will run to the right Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF): fluid that bathes the brain; senses H/CO2 concentrations from blood and causes chemoreceptors to act CO2 LEVELS INCREASE  Excess CO2 diffuses into CSF  H ions also increase in CSF (because chain runs to the right)  Central chemoreceptors generate more AP’s to respiratory control center  Increases breathing rates through motor stimulation of diaphragm  Lowers CO2 levels in blood CO2 LEVELS DECREASE  CSF senses too little CO2  H ions also decrease (chain runs to the left)  Central chemoreceptors generate fewer AP’s to RCC  Decreases rates of diaphragm stimulation  Increases CO2 levels in blood Partial pressure – just how much of total air pressure is due to any one gas (O2, CO2) - Oxygenated blood vs. deoxygenated blood - Gases diffuse down their concentration gradient o DIFFUSION = the driving force that causes O2 to enter alveoli and CO2 to leave the blood IMMUNE SYSTEM Lymphatic System – critical for both circulatory and immune system 1. Fluid recovery 2. Site of immune cells  Vessels o Extend to all tissues  Organs/tissues that produce and maintain immune cells o Tonsils, thymus, spleen, bone marrow, lymph nodes Humans = 4 to 6 liters of blood  Capillaries are “leaky”  2 to 4 liters of water diffuse into tissues daily (interstitial fluid)  10-15% of fluid is taken up by lymphatic system at site of gas exchange o Now called lymph Lymphatic capillaries  lymphatic vessels  subclavian  vena cava  right atrium Lymph Nodes: filters lymph 1. Provides site for leukocytes to ambush pathogens 2. Triggers other parts of immune system (spleen, thymus, tonsils) Elephantiasis – parasite infects lymph vessels and prevents interstitial fluid reabsorption  Edema in limbs and skins stretches and thickens Nonspecific Immunity WHITE BLOOD CELLS  External barriers (leukocytes) - Produced in red bone marrow  Phagocytic cells - Retain organelles  Immunological surveillance - Cells of immunity based on stem cell source  Complement system in marrow: o Neutrophils, basophils, eosinophils 1. EXTERNAL BARRIERS (non-specific)  Physical – deny access and o Monocytes  macrophages (non- approach of pathogens specific) o Lymphocytes  B and T cells (specific), o Skin, mucus NKC (non-specific) membranes  Chemical – tears/kills bacteria o Acid mantle o Enzymes 2. PHAGOCYTIC CELLS  Neutrophils  Monocytes/macrophages 3. IMMUNOLOGICAL SURVEILLANCE  Recognizes any abnormal antigens and produces perforin  protein that perforates pathogenic cells till they burst 4. COMPLEMENT SYSTEM  Complement proteins insert themselves into membrane of pathogen and create pore, cell cannot regulate what goes in and comes out so it swells and lyses - “Compliments” specific resistance activates when antibodies are bound to antigens 5. INFLAMMATION  Caused by chemicals released from damaged cells  WBC are attracted to affected area and release their own chemicals Hypermia: increased blood flow (vasodilation) to cause heat in tissue and redness Bradykinin: receptors that send pain signals Increase in metabolic to brain ability to Platelet Derived Growth Factor (PDGF): multiply/heal cells stimulates cells to go though mitosis  Some chemicals cause capillaries to become leaky, so WBC/RBC are able to pass through to damaged tissue (swelling) o More fluid drains to lymphatic system TOO MUCH INFLAMMATION = cuts off arteries too  no blood flow “Pus” = mixture of tissue fluid, cell debris, dead/dying WBCs, and pathogens 6. FEVER  Caused by pyrogens released by macrophages in response to infection  Hypothalamus is “resetting” body’s thermostat  TOO MUCH FEVER = causes proteins to unwind - Promotes interferon activity - Elevates metabolic rate and tissue repair - Inhibits production of bacteria/viruses Specific Immunity  Cell-mediated immunity  Antibody-mediated immunity Antigen Presenting Cells (APC)  Major Histocompatibility complex o Class II: engulfs antigen, combines with lysosome and is engulfed by enzymes o Keeps a little bit (antigen) to hold on surface of MHCII for Helper T Cells to recognize it Two-Signal Model 1. Naïve Helper T Cells bind to APC antigen on class II MHC o Activates HT Cells 2. Co-stimulation through cytokines Cytokines help stimulate Cyotoxic T cells and B cells  Cytotoxic T Cells: directly attack infected cells that display the same MHCI protein (perforin/lymphotoxin)  B Cells: produce antibodies that stick to the pathogens Antibodies – help neutralize or destroy a pathogen e
