PE Lung function definitions
  1. tidal volume
    1. the amount of air breathed in and out per breath
    2. mmhg
      1. a unit for measuring atmospheric pressure
      2. kPa
        1. Kilo pascal (a measure of pressure in the lungs)
        2. expiration
          1. the act of breathing out
          2. minuet ventalation
            1. the amount of air moved in and out of the lungs in one minute. measured in millilitres per minute (ml.min-1)
            2. diffustion
              1. the moment of partial of gas or liquid from an area of high concentration to an area of low concetration
              2. partial pressure
                1. the pressure a gas exerts in a mixture of gases
                2. respiratory center
                  1. an area in the brain stem that is deposable for the control of breathing rate and depth in the body
                  2. Inspiratory reserve volume
                    1. maximal about of air forcibly expired in addition to tidal volume
                    2. Total lung capacity
                      1. Vital capacity plus reisidual volumes (TV+IVR+ERV+RV)
                      2. inspiration
                        1. the act of breathing in
                        2. Vital capacity
                          1. maximal amount of air exhaled after maximal inspiration
                          2. Expiratory reserve volume
                            1. maximal amount of air forcibly expired in addition to tidal volume
                            2. Chemoreceptor
                              1. tiny structure in the carotid artery and aorta arch which is stimulated by the increased acidity in the blood
                              2. Alveoli
                                1. tiny thin walled air sacs found in large numbers in the lungs
                                2. Residual volume
                                  1. amount of air left in the lungs after a maximal insperation
