Question 1
1 point
Intrapulmonary pressure is the ...

pressure within the alveoli of the lungs

negative pressure in the intrapleural space
pressure within the pleural cavity
difference between atmospheric pressure and
respiratory pressure

Question 2
1 point
Which of the choices below determines the direction of
respiratory gas movement?

solubility in water
the temperature
partial pressure gradient
molecular weight and size of the gas molecule

Question 3
1 point
Which of the following incorrectly describes mechanisms of CO2

20% of CO2 is carried in the form of carbaminohemoglobin

attached to the heme part of hemoglobin
7-10% of CO2 is dissolved directly into the plasma
as bicarbonate ion in plasma

Question 4
1 point
The most powerful respiratory stimulus for breathing in a healthy
person is ...

increase of carbon dioxide

loss of oxygen in tissues

Question 5
1 point
Henry's law states that when a gas is in contact with a liquid, that
gas will dissolve in the liquid in proportion to its partial pressure.


Question 6
1 point
The lung volume that represents the total volume of
exchangeable air is the ...

inspiratory capacity
tidal volume
vital capacity
expiratory reserve volume

Question 7
1 point
For the same partial pressure of O2, a higher body temperature will result in a

hemoglobin saturation

Question 8
1 point
Large changes in partial pressure of O2 cause large changes in hemoglobin
saturation, at low partial pressures of O2

Question 9
1 point
A higher surface tension of alveolar fluid results in

Question 10
1 point
The surface tension of intrapleural fluid
enhance the coupling of the lungs to the thorax wall
enhance the separation of the lungs and the thorax wall
