Define respiration?

Respiration is that process in which food is broken to release energy for vital activities of organisms. Types: aerobic respiration: this type of respiration takes place in the presence of oxygen. Respiration in higher plants and animals. Anaerobic respiration:  this type of respiration takes place in the absence of oxygen. Respiration in bacteria.

What is breathing?

The taking in of oxygen into the lungs and giving out of CO2 is called breathing.

Phases: breathing is completed in two phases.

Inhalation: it is the taking of oxygen into the body.

Exhalation: it is the giving out of CO2 from the body.

What is the respiratory surface ,write down its important properties?

Respiratory surface is the area where gases are exchanged with the environment actually takes place.

Properties: it must be permeable.

It must be thin.

It should have a large surface area.

It should possess a good transport medium.

What are respiratory organs?

The organs that help in respiration by providing respiratory surface for gaseous exchange are called respiratory organs. In plants: respiration takes place through stomata in leaves , they do not have special respiratory organs.

In animals: in aquatic animals the organs of respiration are gills. While in land animals lungs are the respiratory organs.

What is the air passageway?

The passage of the respiratory system through which the air passes to the lungs is called air passageway.

Components: nose ,two nostrils, nasal cavity, pharynx ,larynx, trachea, bronchi, bronchioles.

What change occurs during inhalation?

When the inhaled air passes through nasal cavities, it undergoes the following changes.

It is warmed.

It is moistened by the inner lining of the nasal cavity.

It is dust free by the hair of the nasal cavity.

What is epiglottis?

Epiglottis is a flap that is made of elastic tissue covered with a mucus membrane and is attached to the entrance of the larynx.

Its function is to protect  the trachea during swallowing.

Importance:  epiglottis is important to prevent the entry of food or liquid to the larynx because it closes the esophagus during inhalation.

It is impossible to swallow and inhale at same time due to the presence of epiglottis.

What is the vocal cord?

Vocal cord or vocal folds are also known as voice reads are two infolding of mucus membrane in the larynx. The vibrations during speech produce voice.the vocal cords remain open during inhalation closes when infolding the breath. They are white because of scant blood circulation.

How does the trachea divide?

It is also the windpipe . It is a tubular structure made up of open rings of cartilage.

Division: inside the thorax the trachea divide into two branches called bronchi (single bronchus) each enter to the lung’s own side. They further divide and re- divide and finally attain the diameter of one mm or less then they are called bronchioles.

What is the difference between right and left lungs?

Right lungs : the right lung is larger in size. It represents 56% of total lung volume. It is composed of three lobes.

Left lung: it is smaller in size than the right lung. It represents 44% of total lung volume. It is composed of two lobes.

What are air sacs?

Air sacs are the functional units of lungs which give the lungs its characteristic spongy nature. Alveoli: each air sac consisting of many microscopic structures is called alveoli, (singullar= alveolus ) from latin it means small cavity.

Number: there are about 700 million alveoli in human lungs.

Write down the comparison of the inhalation and exhalation?

Inhalation: during inhalation the volume of thorax is increased. The muscles of diaphragm contract. The ribs are raised upward. The atmospheric air rushed into the lung through the trachea.

Exhalation: thoracic volume decreases during exhalation. The diaphragm muscles relax. The ribs go down. Pressure entered on the lung to expel the air out.

Define respiratory cycle, what are its phases?

The single cycle consisting of one inspiration and one expiration is known as respiratory cycle or it is the time interval between the two consecutive inspirations. Phases: inspiration = positive flow in air way.

Plateau (inspiration pause ) zero flow between end inhalation and exhalation begins. Exhalation = negative flow in air way. Period of rest. Absence of air flow.

What are lung capacities?

Lung volume and capacities refer to the volume of air associated with different phases of respiratory cycle. Amount: the average adult human has a lung capacity approximately 5 liter.

Define tidal volume and the residual volume of lungs?

It is the volume of lungs representing the normal volume of air displaced between normal inhalation and exhalation when extra efforts are not applied. Healthy adult is 500ml/ inspiration of 7ml/ kg weight. Residual volume: it is the volume of air remaining lungs after maximum exhalation. Vital capacity: it is the volume of air breathed out after deepest inhalation.

How breathing is controlled involuntarily ?

The breath center is located in the medulla oblongata that controls breathing. Inspiratory center: it  is the ventral portion and controlled rate and depth of inspiration.

Expiratory center: it comprises the dorsal and lateral portion.  It inhibits the inspiration and stimulates the expiration.

How oxygen is carried by blood?

In   blood oxygen is carried through two agencies.

Haemoglobin  in the RBC s carry about  z97 of oxygen to the tissue.

Plasma:  blood plasma carries 3% of oxygen is dissolved form.

what is oxyhaemoglobin?

Hemoglobin  is a protein in our red blood cells. It has iron that  possesses affinity towards oxygen. Oxyhaemoglobin  when we breathe in oxygen from our lungs dissolve in blood capillaries and react with iron of hemoglobin thus forming  an unstable compound called oxyhaemoglobin.  hemoglobin + O2  oxygen haemoglobin.

what is oxygen carrying capacity ?

The oxygen carrying capacity of the hemoglobin to bind with oxygen is called oxygen carrying capacity of the blood. it depends upon the efficiency and amount of hemoglobin in our blood. gm

Hb/dl  x 1.3 ml O2/ gm Hb.In this HB content is taken and multiplying it by oxygen capacity of 1 gm of Hb.

How carbon dioxide is transported by blood?

There are three ways of carbon dioxide transport.

As bicarbonate ions: about 70% of carbon dioxide is transported by blood as bicarbonate ions.

CO2 + H2O =  H2CO3

H2CO3 is an unstable compound that is dissociated as follows.

H2CO3+ H

What is meant by chloride shift?

It is a process which occurs in the cardiovascular system and refers to the exchange of Bicarbonate chloride across the membrane of red blood cells. It is also known as a hamburger phenomenon named after hartog jakob hamburger.

what is respiratory pigment?

respiratory pigment is a molecule that increases the oxygen carrying capacity of the blood

It is for chemical cases of respiratory pigments that are metalloproteins.

Hemoglobin, haemocyanin,  chlorocruorin, Hemerythrins. They bind  reversibly with O2 at specific  O2  binding sites associated with metal atoms in their molecular structures.

Discuss sinusitis?

Sinusitis Is the inflammation of  nasal  sinuses.

What is the eustachian tube?

The eustachian tube, Also known as auditory tube is a tube that links the nasopharynx to the middle ear.

In adult humans it is approximately 35 mm and is named after anatomist bartolommeo eustachio.

Function under normal conditions the human eustachian  tube is closed but it can open to let a small amount of air through it to prevent that damage by equalising pressure between the middle ear And Atmosphere.

write a short note on your lungs?

lungs are respiratory organs of man and other land animals.

Structure lungs are sac-like structures inside the thoracic cavity; they are covered by a protective layer called pleura.

Alveoli are the functional unit of lungs which give the characteristic spongy nature to the lungs.

The function of lungs is to supply oxygen be disturbed to tissue and collect carbon dioxide from tissue for removal.

what do you know about Bronchitis?

Bronchitis is the lower  respiratory disorder in which the lining of the bronchial tubes become inflamed or infected. The condition is called bronchitis.

Affecting bronchitis reduces the amount of oxygen that can flow into the lungs.

Treatment can be treated with medication and bronchodilators .
