  Chapter Two: Respiratory System Breathing does many things including:   1. Supplies oxygen to the body and disposes of carbon dioxide   2. Dissipates heat from the body   3. Helps water evaporate     Main processes of respiration   ❏ There are 4 main processes:  1. Pulmonary ventilation   2. External Respiration   3. Transportation of Gases   4. Internal Respiration   ① ​ Pulmonary Ventilation  ­ The muscle most involved in this process is the diaphragm   ­ All pulmonary ventilation is is breathing in and out  → inspiration: breathing in   → expiration: breathing out   ② ​ External Respiration   ­ Exchanges of gas between the environment and the body   ③ ​ Transportation of Gases   ­ Oxygen is transported in the blood 2 different ways:   a. Carried in the plasma as dissolved gas   b. Most oxygen is carried by the hemoglobin located in the red blood cells   ­ There are 2 sites of gas exchange:   a. Between the tissues and blood of the body   b. In the lungs   ­ The mechanism for gas exchange is simple diffusion                 ④ ​ Internal Respiration  ­ The exchange of gasses between the cells and blood       Functional Anatomy in Respiration   Two Zone:   1. Conducting Zone   2. Respiratory Zone   The Conduction Zone  ­ Includes all of the main organs that are not molecular   → from the Nose all the way to the Bronchioles   ­ Conducts gas exchange   The Respiratory Zone   ­ The actual site of gas exchange   → from the Lungs to the Alveoli     Air Filtration   ❏ Cells from the conducting zone send air to the stratified epithelium   ❏ Cilia helps move mucus to dampen the air so the alveoli does not dry out     Warming and Humidification   ❏ Body temperature helps warm the air that is inhaled to at least 37 degrees celsius   ❏ Warm air holds more moisture which is beneficial to the alveoli     Structures of the Upper Respiratory Tract: Conducting Zone     ❏ The Nose/ Nasal Cavity   ­ Passage of inhaled air     ­ Warms the inhaled air   ­ Moistens the air with mucus for the cilia → acts as a protective coating   ­ Olfactory organs for smell and pheromones detections   ❏ The Paranasal Sinuses  ­ Helps project our voices   ­ Moistens the inhaled air   ­ Makes the skull less heavy   ­ Regulates pressure   ­ Acts as a shock absorbance   ❏ The Pharynx and Larynx   ­ Controls the passage of air and food   → larynx: vocalizations  → pharynx: passage of air and food to the esophagus   ­ That is why you cannot swallow and breathe at the same time   ❏ The Trachea, Bronchus and Bronchioles   ­ C­ shaped cartilage rings keep the trachea erect   ­ The trachea produces mucus, warms/humidifies air   ­ The bronchial tree:  → includes the bronchi and bronchioles   → less cartilage, more smooth muscle   → cilia aids in the movement of mucus     The Lower Respiratory Tract: Respiratory Zone   ❏ What is its function?­  ​ exchanges gas between the blood and the alveoli and sends it to  the tissues and cells throughout the entire body   Structures   1. Lungs ­​ composed of air spaces surrounded by stroma   a. What is Stroma?­ elastic connective tissue   ­ 2 organs paired that maximize all the space in the thoracic cavity of the body   ­ Have distinct lobes   2. Alveoli​ ­ structural and functional unit   ­ Surrounded by fine elastic fibers   ­ Contains open pores that do 2 things:   a. Connects adjacent alveoli   b. Equalizes air pressure in the lungs   ­ Houses alveolar macrophages that keep alveolar surfaces sterilized
