Cardiovascular System & Respiratory System
Share the responsibility of supplying oxygen & elimanating carbon dixoide gas from & to the body.
is closed off when we swallow so that foods & liquids are routed posteriorly into the esophagus & are kept out of the trachea anteriorly.
the fluid within the pleural cavity prevents fricton between the pleural membranes & allows them to slide past each other during respiration.
a progressively degerative disease characterized by the destruction of elasticity of the alveolar walls, resulting in the decreases ability of the lungs to expel are is known as:
respiratory distress syndrome
Hyaline membrane disease, common in premature infants & characterized by inadequate ventilation & tirung if the respiratory muscles.
an infection of the lungs characterized by fever, chest pain, fluid in the lungs & difficulty in breathing.
an inherited disease affectingf the secretory cells of the lungs, which leads to obstruction of the airway due to thick mucus accumulating in the lungs.

of a gas is the amount of pressure that gas contributes to the total pressure & is directly proportional to the concentration of the gas in the mixture.
is the outer layer of the Pleural membrane that attches the lungs to the wall of the Thoracic Cavity.
