Inhalation vs Exhalation 

Inhalation = Diaphragm contraction causing a negative pressure pulling air into lungs

Exhalation = Diaphragm relaxes thoracic pressure increases pushing air out.

300

What are Chemoreceptors?

They monitor levels of O2, CO2, and the pH of the cerebrospinal fluid and then provide feedback to the respiratory centers to modify the rate and depth of breathing.

Surfactant

Liquid protein substance that coats the alveoli in the lungs. Decreases the alveolar surface tension and keeps them expanded.
