T/F?
The MAIN FUNCTION of the RESPIRATORY SYSTEM is to supply 02 to the body & eliminate C02 from the body.
In order to accomplish this task, the respiratory system must work in conjunction with the cardiovascular system
True!
What are 5 functions of the Respiratory system?
(think: VDGPP)
The 5 functions of the Respiratory system are (VDGPP):

1. VENTILATION = moving the air; air is warmed, humidified & filtered.(this is different than gas exchange)
2. DEFEND respiratory system from pathogens.
3. GAS EXCHANGE = 02 & C02 (going back & forth across the alveolar capillary interface)
4. ph REGULATION of blood = exhalation of C02
5. PERMIT vocal communication
T/F?
Gas exchange is 02 & C02 going back & forth across the alveolar capillary interface?
(and gas exchange is different than ventilation)
True!
T/F?
pH regulation of blood is done through exhalation of CO2?
True!
If you hold your breath, which way does you pH go: does your pH go up or down?
When you hold your breath, your pH goes DOWN!
What happens to your pH when you hyper ventilate (breathing in & out really fast)?
When you hyper ventilate, your pH goes UP!
T/F?
Ventilation is just moving the air in & out?

(ventilation is different than gas exchange)
True! Ventilation is moving air by inhaling and exhaling.
In the upper respiratory tract:
Air entering the body is filtered, warmed and humidified by ________?
Ventilation

(Ventilation of air is breathing in and out which causes movement of air from the environment towards the alveoli)
What type of zone is this:
The Ventilation of air (movement of air from the environment towards the alveoli), humidifes and cleans air in this zone & it STARTS at the "environment" level and ENDS at the terminal bronchioles" is what type of ZONE? CONDUCTION zone or
RESPIRATORY Zone?
Conduction Zone
Is there gas exchange going in the CONDUCTION ZONE?
NO! There is NO gas exchange going on in the conduction zone.
Where does the CONDUCTION ZONE end?
the conduction zone starts in the environment and
ENDS AT THE TERMINAL BRONCHIOLES.
T/F?
The respiratory zone is where the actual gas exchange is occurring at the Alveoli?
True!
The respiratory zone is where the gas exchange is occurring at the alveoli!
T/F?
The RESPIRATORY ZONE STARTS just AFTER the respiratory bronchioles and it occurs where the gas exchange happens at the "ALVEOLI" ?
TRUE!
Where does the respiratory zone start?
The respiratory zone starts after the RESPIRATORY BRONCHIOLES.

(The bronchioles all have simple cubidal epithelial tissue)
Where does the CONDUCTION ZONE end/terminate?
TERMINAL BRONCHIOLE = end of conduction zone

(bronchioles have simple cuboidal)
"Respiration" refers to the overall exchange of gases between the atmosphere, blood & cells.

Respiration involves 3 processes
1. Pulmonary ventilation
2. External respiration
3. Internal respiration
...
If you inhale something (like food or candy) & it went down the wrong pipe, which LUNG would it probably go into?
If you inhale something, it will usually go into the RIGHT LUNG.

(the Right bronchus is a little bit more large and its a
straighter shot into the Right lung)
What is the function of the epiglottis?
During swallowing, the EPIGLOTTIS folds over the GLOTTIS, preventing food or liquids from entering the respiratory passageways!
Does the epiglottis keep the food from going down the wrong pipe when you are swallowing?
YES!
Does PSCC line the majority of the respiratory tract?
Yes! Respiratory tract lining = PSCC
Is PSCC one layer deep or more than one layer?

PSCC (pseudostratified ciliated comulmnar epithelium) with many goblet cells; has cilia on it!
*It produces mucus to trap foreign particles.
What is the Cilia doing in the TRACHEA?
The trachea is inferior to the pharynx.
So, the CILIA in the TRACHEA "SWEEPS" debris UP to be swallowed at pharynx.
There is cilia there; so the mucus is on top of the cilia and then it sweeps it up & out to be either
expectorated or swallowed = MUCUS ESCULATOR.
What is the mucus escalator?
The MUCUS ESCULATOR is present in the Trachea where the cilia of the respiratory epithelium SWEEP UP toward the pharynx, cleaning the respiratory passageways.

(The trachea is inferior to the pharynx; so think an elevator moves things UP = mucus elevator!)
T/F?
With SMOKERS, PSCC develops into STRATIFIED LAYERS due to exposure to carcinogens & causes the cells to divide and can lead to cancer.

TRUE!

(the esophagus is located directly posterior to the TRACHEA!)
T/F?
The Trachea has "C - shaped" rings of hyline cartilage protecting airway allowing for swallowing?
True!

The C shaped cartilage does not go all the way around the trachea, so it is a C shape ring.

TRACHEALIS MUSCLE = smooth muscle around the Trachea.

(It runs across the posterior wall of the Trachea connecting ends of tracheal cartilage).
How are trachea cartilages involved in respiration?
Tracheal cartilages prevent the overexpansion or collapse of the airways during respiration, thereby keeping the airway open and functional.
