What is inhalation?

200

There are at least 2 components to increase in respiration that precedes the increased oxygen requirement. 1) The first component is anticipation of exercise and may involve activation of the sympathetic nervous system in order to prepare the body for activity. 2) ???????????????

200

Each side of the heart has an ________ which receives blood from a vein.
What is an atrium?

200

This is the lowest arterial pressure measured during left ventricular relaxation.
What is diastolic blood pressure?

300

This is the greatest volume of gas that, following maximum inhalation, can be expelled during a complete, slow, forced exhalation.
What is Vital Capacity?

300

A decrease in the bicarbonate in the blood leads to a higher acidity. This would trigger what change in breathing by the nervous system?
What is a decrease in the rate and depth of respirations?

300

This is the removal of some blood from an athlete after training at altitude which stimulates an increase of RBC’s. This blood is reintroduced to the athlete just before competition to increase athletic performance
What is blood doping?

300

This is the portion of the cardiovascular system which carries oxygen-depleted blood away from the heart, to the lungs, and returns oxygenated blood back to the heart.
What is pulmonary circulation?

300

_______________ innervation originates in the medulla and passes to the heart by way of the vagus nerves and slows the heart. This slowing of the heart is called ____________ .
What is Parasympathetic : bradycardia?
