    internal intercostals

  49. Regulation of breathing Ventilation is controlled by ventilation center in the medulla Chemoreceptors detect changes in CO2 Hypercarbia = too much CO2 in blood = acidosis of blood => when PCO2 rises, medulla increases respiratory rate to blow off the CO2 

    Hypoventilation = increased CO2 in blood (so _____ blood pH)

    Hyperventilation = increased CO2 removal from blood  (so _____ blood pH)
    decrease - more acidic

    increase - more basic
  50. Total lung capacity (TLC) = 6-7L

  51. In emphysema the alveolar walls are destroyed decreasing recoil in lung tissue. Which of the following changes may be seen in a patient with emphysema?

    A- Increased residual volume
    B- Decreased total lung capacity
    C- Increased blood Oxygen Conc
    D- Decreased blood CO2 Conc
    Answer is A: The elastic properties of the lung are important during exhalation; passive recoil helps decrease lung volume. With decreased recoil, the patient will have difficulty exhaling completely, which increases the residual volume left in lungs after total exhalation.  B is wrong because the total lung capacity will increase (there's less recoil opposing inhalation)
  52. ALVEOLAR GAS EXCHANGE Deoxygenated blood from the pulmonary arteries arrive at lung capillaries (originating from R ventricle) Gas Diffusion follows Pressure differentials & Henry's law: O2 has higher partial pressure in the alveolar sac, and so diffused down gradient into capillaries, to bind to Hemoglobin for transport. CO2 has higher partial pressure in the capillaries, and so diffuse down gradient from capillaries to alveolar sac, for expiration. *there are no active transporters for CO2 or O2 in the alveoli!
  53. Henry's Law: for a given T, the amount of gas diffused in a liquid (i.e. blood in the capillaries) is directly proportional to its partial pressure and its solubility in water 

    This means that as a diver descends gas dissolves more easily into our body.

    Dilation of capillaries allows more blood thru the vessels = more thermal energy lost Constriction = less blood thru vessels = less thermal energy lost (more heat conserved)
  54. CO2 + H20 <---> H2CO3 <--> HCO3- + H+

    Normal pH range is 7.35-7.45 
    Acidemia = When blood is too acidic (lower pH) (i.e. shifted to the Right) H+-sensing chemoreceptors next to brain barrier send signals to increase the respiratory rate Increased respiratory rate increases the rate of CO2 removal, which shifts the equation to the Left 

    Alkalemia = blood is too basic (high pH) (i.e. shifted to the Left) Brain slows respiratory rate, to decrease the rate CO2 is exhaled (thus keeping more CO2 in the blood), which shifts the rxn to the Right to lower the pH i.e. metabolic acidosis = body compensates by increasing respiratory rate to breath off some of the CO2 i.e. anaerobic respiration generates lactic acid; methanol & formaldehyde produce organic acids; Type I Diabetes pts can produce ketoacids when insulin is very low 

    Hyperventilation = makes your blood more basic (greater loss of CO2) 

    Hypoventilation = makes your blood more acidic 

     *in pH control, the important thing to remember is that CO2 is always going to be produced, constantly, by the metabolism of your tissues. So, if breathing rate decreases, don't focus on the O2 that isn't getting to your tissues - focus first on the CO2 that isn't being exhaled, that is making your pH increasingly acidic!!
  55. SA node --> AV node --> bundle of His (AV bundle) and branches --> Purkinje fibers SA node depolarization causes atria to contract simultaneously AV node connects atrial and ventricular depolarization; signal is delayed at AV node (to allow ventricles to fill completely before they contract) Signal travels down bundle of His and its branches (in the interventricular septum) to Purkinje fibers Cardiac smooth Muscle cells are connected by intercalated discs= many gap junctions, allows for coordinated ventricular contraction

  58. ______ = ventricular relaxation; semilunar valves are closed, while AV valves open to allow blood to fill ventricles (flowing from atria)
  59. *P wave triggers Atrial depolarization = atrial systole 

    *QRS triggers ventricular depolarization = ventricular systole 

    *tarychardia = abnormally fast HR; less time for diastole (atrial and ventricular relaxation); doesn't allow time for blood to fully distend the ventricles, which happens when ventricles are relaxed. Thus, heart can't properly fill with blood, and stops pumping blood; systemic pressure drops.
  60. Cardiac Output = total blood volume pumped by ventricle in a minute 

    CO = HR x SV 

    CO = cardiac output (L/min) 
    SV = stroke volume (L/beat)

    Hydrostatic pressure 

    Osmotic (oncotic)

    oncotic pressure
  64. Sympathetic effects: sympathetic postganglionic nerve fibers release norepinephrine acting on alpha receptors causes vasoconstriction. Increases heart contractile rate and force (increase HR, blood volume per beat) Decreased flow (vasoconstriction) to skin, digestive system, kidneys via increased vasoconstriction (increased sympathetic input)(b/c these organs aren't as active when in fight-or-flight) Increased flow (vasodilation by decreasing sympathetic activity to these arterioles) on skeletal muscle and brain. When cold, there's vasoconstriction (increased sympathetic input) of arterioles to the skin. 


    Parasympathetic effects: Plays only a minor role in regulation of the circulation Major circulatory effect is the control of heart rate by way of parasympathetic fibres carried to the heart in the vagus nerves. Principally, parasympathetic stimulation causes a marked decrease in heart rate (negative chronotropic effect) and a slight decrease in heart muscle contractility (negative inotropic effect Example: response to injury - vasodilation to the area (from decreasing sympathetic input to the area) allows greater blood flow and inflammation; brings in lymphocytes and macrophages, etc
  65. Flow and velocity: Velocity of flow decreases as total cross-sectional area of tubs increases (i.e. flow is slowest in capillaries)

    so is velocity higher in aorta or arterioles?
  66. Why do we need lymphatic system to return protein to blood vessels?
    Because proteins leak out of bloodstream due to pressure and conc gradients. They cannot be readily absorbed, because blood pressure and protein conc are both higher in the blood vessels than in interstitial space.
  67. ______ can trigger salivation (controlled by parasympathetic system)

  86. Actin or myosin

    Thick filaments = _____

    Thin filaments = _____
    myosin - thick

    actin - thin
  87. Muscle --> Myocyte ---> Myofibrils -- > sarcomere

    ______ = cell membrane of myocyte 

    ACh receptors are here; binding of ACh causes depolarization of membrane, which spreads to the fibrils via T-tubules 

    Sarcoplasm = modified cytoplasm of myocyte 

    Sarcoplasmic reticulum = modified ER that contains high Ca2+ ions; surrounds _____ in a myocyte 

    T-tubules = transverse; allows a depolarization to travel deep into the muscle to influence all the myofibrils

  88. Slow-twitch red muscle (TYPE I)

    Fast-twitch white muscle (TYPE II) 

    Has _______ mitochondria; performs ____ for ATP



  89. _______ Muscle to bone 


    ______ Bone to bone 

    Bone matrix:
    Organic components: Collagen, glycoproteins, peptides 

    Inorganic components: Calcium, phosphate, hydroxide (formhydroxyapatite)

  90. ________ ossification: 

    Formation of long bone 


    _______ ossification: 

    When mesenchymal tissue (undifferentiated, embryonic connective tissue) is transformed into bone - i.e. in skull
