100

Provides the initial receiving chamber for inhaled air.
What is the nose?

100

Microscopic air sac or space in the lungs.
What are alveoli?

100

The sum of the vital capacity and residual volume.
What is the total lung capacity?

100

One function of the respiratory system is to remove carbon dioxide from the blood stream.
What is TRUE?

200

Compartments that lungs are divided into.
What are lobes?

200

Tubular air passage about 4/5 inches by 1 inch.
What is the trachea?

The reason that the right and left lung have different numbers of compartments.
What is because of the heart on the left side?

The total amount of exchangeable air.
What is vital capacity?

200

The lungs occupy most of the thoracic cavity.
What is TRUE?

300

Number of lobes in the right lung and the left lung in that order.
What is 3 and 2?

300

Chamber from the back of the nasal cavity to larynx.

The narrow superior portion of the lung.
What is the apex?

400

The voice box.
What is the larynx?

400

The "tree" that branches off into each lung.
What are bronchioles?

The amount of air that can be inhaled forcibly over the tidal volume.
What is inspiratory reserve volume?

400

In expiration your body relies upon muscle contractions.
What is FALSE?

500

Diffusion of these two gases between the alveoli and blood and between the blood and the cells is what respiration is all about.
What are oxygen and carbon dioxide?

500

Oxygen filled hemoglobin is called this.
What is Oxyhemoglobin?

500

Thin barrier between alveoli & capillaries that assists with the rapid exchange of gasses.
What is the respiratory membrane?

500

The volume of air remaining in the lungs after a forced expiration.
What is the residual volume?

500

There are 300-500 million alveoli in the lungs of an average adult.
What is TRUE?
