13

_____ is an inflammation of the larynx that is most often brought on by a respiratory infection or irritants such as cigarette smoke; it causes horseness or loss of voice by interfering with the contraction of the folds or by causing them to swell to the point where they cannot vibrate freely.

Laryngitis

19

A _____ is an x-ray of the bronchial tree taken after introduction of an opaque contrast medium, usually containing iodine.

bronchogram

20

(1)_____ is the visual examination of the bronchi through a (2)_____, an illuminated, tubular instrument that is passed through the trachea into the bronchi. The examiner can view the interior of the trachea and bronchi to biopsy a tumor, clear an obstructing object or secretions from an airway, take cultures or smears for microscopic examination, stop bleeding, or deliver drugs.

(1)bronchoscopy
(2)bronchoscope

21

During an _____ _____, the bronchiole smooth muscle contracts, reducing the diameter of the airways. Because there is no supporting cartilage, the spasms can even close off the air passageways, a life-threatening situation.

asthma attack

22

The lungs are enclosed and protected by the _____ _____.

pleural membrane

24

The _____ _____ is the outer layer of the lungs, attached to the wall of the thoracic cavity.

parietal pleura

25

The _____ _____ is the inner layer of the lungs, covering the lungs themselves.

26

Between the pleura is a small potential space, the _____ _____, which contains a lubricating fluid secreted by the membranes.

35

Type II alveolar cells secrete alveolar fluid, which keeps the alveolar cells moist and which contains a component called _____, which lowers the surface tension of alveolar fluid, preventing the collapse of alveoli with each expiration.

39

The movement of air into and out of the lungs depends on pressure changes governed in part by _____ _____, which states that the volume of a gas varies inversely with pressure, assuming that temperature is constant.

Boyle's Law

40

Inspiration occurs when (1)_____ _____ falls below atmospheric pressure. Contraction of the diaphragm and external intercostal muscles increases the size of hte thorax, thus decreasing the (2)_____ _____ so that the lungs expand. Expansion of the lungs decreases alveolar pressure so that air moves along the pressure gradient from the atmosphere into the lungs.

During forced inspiration, accessory muscles of inspiration(_____,_____,and _____ _____) are also used.

_____ is the movement of air out of the lungs.

Expiration(exhalation)

43

Expiration occurs when alveolar pressure is _____ than atmospheric pressure.

higher

44

What is the passive process of expiration?

Relaxation of the diaphragm and external intercostal muscles. This results in elastic recoil of the chest wall and lungs, which increases intrapleural pressure, decreases lung volume, and increases alveolar pressure so that air moves from the lungs to the atmosphere. There is also an inward pull of surface tension due to the film of alveolar fluid.`

Expiration becomes active during...

atelectasis

48

The presence of _____, a phospholipid produced by the type II alveolar (septal) cells in the alveolar walls, allows alteration of the surface tension of the alveoli and prevents their collapse following expiration.
