Mosby items and derived items © 2012 Mosby, Inc., an imprint of Elsevier Inc. 9 Pulmonary and Bronchial Circulation  Pulmonary circulation has a lower pressure than the systemic circulation  One-third of pulmonary vessels are filled with blood at any given time  Pulmonary artery divides and enters the lung at the hilus  Each bronchus and bronchiole has an accompanying artery or arteriole
  10. 10. Mosby items and derived items © 2012 Mosby, Inc., an imprint of Elsevier Inc. 10 Pulmonary and Bronchial Circulation (cont’d)  Alveolocapillary membrane  Formed by the shared alveolar and capillary walls  Gas exchange occurs across this membrane  Pulmonary veins  Each drains several pulmonary capillaries  Dispersed randomly throughout the lung  Leave the lung at the hila and enter the left atrium

  15. 15. Mosby items and derived items © 2012 Mosby, Inc., an imprint of Elsevier Inc. 15 Function of the Pulmonary System (cont’d)  Ventilation  Mechanical movement of gas or air into and out of the lungs  Minute volume • Ventilatory rate multiplied by the volume of air per breath  Alveolar ventilation
  16. 16. Mosby items and derived items © 2012 Mosby, Inc., an imprint of Elsevier Inc. 16 Ventilation  Respiratory center • Dorsal respiratory group • Ventral respiratory group • Pneumotaxic center • Apneustic center  Peripheral chemoreceptors  Lung receptors: • Irritant receptors • Stretch receptors • J receptors  Chemoreceptors: • Central chemoreceptors • Peripheral chemoreceptors  Neurochemical control

  22. 22. Mosby items and derived items © 2012 Mosby, Inc., an imprint of Elsevier Inc. 22 Gas Transport  Four steps  Ventilation of the lungs  Diffusion of oxygen from the alveoli into the capillary blood  Perfusion of systemic capillaries with oxygenated blood  Diffusion of oxygen from systemic capillaries into the cells  Diffusion of CO2 occurs in reverse order

  29. 29. Mosby items and derived items © 2012 Mosby, Inc., an imprint of Elsevier Inc. 29 Control of Pulmonary Circulation  Hypoxic pulmonary vasoconstriction  Caused by low alveolar paO2  Blood is shunted to other, well-ventilated portions of the lungs • Provides better ventilation and perfusion matching • If hypoxia affects all segments of the lungs, the vasoconstriction can result in pulmonary hypertension
  30. 30. Mosby items and derived items © 2012 Mosby, Inc., an imprint of Elsevier Inc. 30 Control of Pulmonary Circulation (cont’d)  Acidemia also causes pulmonary artery constriction
