Airflow-airway resistance and Dynamic compression

Question 1 of 5

Medal-premium 1

Airway resistance = Flow Resistance - pick the wrong statement

Select one of the following:

  • Laminar flow in the acinus - low velocity and Reynolds number is low

  • Trachea-bronchi - turbulent flow - high velocity and high Reynolds number

  • decrease in the radii of the bronchioles in half, which increases their resistance by 4-fold

  • Airway resistance is the highest in the 3rd to 5th generation bronchi

Question 2 of 5

Medal-premium 1

Effects of lung volume on airway diameter

Select one of the following:

  • Airway resistance decreases as lung volume increases during inspiration and vice versa during expiration

  • Airways are elastic so they increase diameter when Pleural pressure goes up

  • This is why it takes longer to exhale during passive breathing than to inhale

  • all of the above are correct

Question 3 of 5

Medal-premium 1

Lung volume and airflow

Select one of the following:

  • Inspiration is effort dependent

  • During expiration increase in effort produces increases in flow only during the initial quarter of the expiratory vital capacity

  • During expiration at low and moderate lung volumes - flow is maximal and is effort independent

  • all of the above are correct

Question 4 of 5

Medal-premium 1

At Equal Pressure Point

Select one of the following:

  • When the pressure in airway is equal to pleural pressure Paw = Ppl

  • During Forced expiration - Upstream of EPP (toward alveoli) driving pressure, PA-P mouth - will move air out of the lungs

  • During Forced expiration - Downstream of EPP (toward mouth) PA -Ppl

  • all of the above are correct

Question 5 of 5

Medal-premium 1

Patients with emphysema have lungs that are easy to inflate, but they don't generate enough elastic recoil pressure to get the air out which causes airways collapse and air trapping

Select one of the following:

  • True
  • False
