Flashcards in Pathophysiology - Chapter 6 & 7 Deck (39)
The cellular process in which oxygen is used to metabolize glucose.
The cellular process in which glucose is metabolized into energy without oxygen.
The blood ejected from the heart in one minute (heart rate x stroke volume)
Chemical sensors in the brain and blood vessels that identify changing levels of oxygen and carbon dioxide
Air that occupies the space between the mouth and alveoli but they does not actually reach the area of gas exchange
Dead air space
An abnormally low amount of water in the body
Swelling associated with the movement of water into the interstitial space
A substance that separates into charged particles in water
Fraction of inspired oxygen; the concentration of oxygen in the air we breathe
The pressure within a blood vessels that pushes water out of the vessel
Inability of the body to adequately circulate blood to the body's cells to supply hem with oxygen and nutrients. Also called shock.
The cellular function of converting nutrients into energy
The amount of air breathed in during each respiration multiplied by the number of breaths per minute
Open and clear; free from obstruction
The study of how disease processes affect the function of the body
The supply of oxygen to and removal of wastes from the cells and tissues as a result of the flow of blood trough the capillaries
The pull exerted by large proteins in the plasma portion of blood that tends to pull water from the body into the bloodstream
Plasma oncotic pressure
The inability of the body to adequately circulate blood to the body's cells to supply them with oxygen and nutrients. Life-threatening condition.
Sensors in blood vessels that identify infernal pressure
The amount of blood ejected from the heart in one contraction
The pressure in the peripheral blood vessels that the heart must overcome in order to pump blood into the system
Systemic vascular resistance (SVR)
The volume of air moved in one cycle of breathing
Ventilation/perfusion match. Oxygen and blood are supplied to the capillaries.
