          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.

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.

Boyle’s Law   2. Dalton’s Law of Partial Pressure­  ​ the total pressure exerted by a mixture of gases is  the sum of the pressures exerted by each gas   a. The Partial Pressure of each gas is directly proportional to its percentage in the  mixture   ­ Alveoli contains more CO​  a2​ water vapor than atmospheric air  3. Henry’s Law ​­ the amount of gas dissolved in a liquid depends on 3 things:   a. Solubility of the gas             b. Temperature of the fluid   c. Partial pressure of the gas   ­ Henry’s Law applied to blood   → gas solubility and temperature are constant   → the amount of gas dissolved is directly proportional to the partial pressure of the gas     External and Internal Pressures   ❏ Surface area of the respiratory membrane   ­ The thinner the resp. Membrane is the more surface area it possesses   ❏ Partial pressure (PP) and gas solubility   ­ Steep oxygen PP  ­ Gentler carbon dioxide PP   ❏ Ventilation & Perfusion coupling  ­ P of oxygen → arterial diameter → perfusion   → What is perfusion?­ the process of a body delivering blood to a capillary bed in  its biological tissue  ­ P of carbon dioxide → bronchiolar diameter → ventilation   → What is ventilation?­ the provision of fresh air to the lungs     Hemoglobin  ❏ The iron found in hemoglobin is ferrous Fe++  ­ When it is combined with oxygen it forms the oxyhemoglobin   ­ When it is not combined with oxygen it forms the deoxyhemoglobin or reduced  hemoglobin   ❏ When iron is oxidized it forms methemoglobin Fe++  ❏ When iron is combined with CO​  it forms 2​rbaminohemoglobin   ❏ When iron is combined with CO it forms carboxyhemoglobin     ❏ The Influence of PO​  on Hemo2​obin Saturation   In arterial blood…   ­ PO​ 2​ 100 mmHg   ­ Contains 20 ml of oxygen per 100 ml blood (20 vol %)   ­ Hb is 98% saturated   → Further increases in PO​  prod2​es minimal increases in O​  binding   2​ e.g. breathing deeply               Loading and Unloading Reactions   … depends on…   ❏ PO​  o2​environment   ❏ Affinity between O​  and hemoglobin   2​ ­ Decreases by low pH, high 2,3 diphosphoglyceric acid (DPG) and high  temperature   Example: exercise   ­ CO​ 2​roduction increases and the pH decreases   ­ Muscle temperature will increase   → both events oxygen unloading increased   Example: anemia   ­ 2,3 DPG production increases   ­ This will increase oxygen unloading     Myoglobin   ❏ Proteins found in striated muscles   1.
