6 Introduction External respiration: Exchange of air in lung capillaries oxygen inhaled into the air sacs of the lungsimmediately passes into capillariescarbon dioxide passes from capillaries into air sacs, to be exhaledWhat percent of oxygen does inhaled air contain? (about 21%)What percent of oxygen does exhaled air contain? (about 16%)What is the medical term for air sacs?
7 Introduction (cont’d) Internal respiration: Exchange of gases in the cellsoccurs simultaneously between cells and capillariesoxygen passes out of the bloodstream into the tissuescarbon dioxide passes out of tissues back into the bloodstream to travel to the lungs
8 Respiratory AnatomyMediastinum: Middle of chest where trachea divides into two branchesBronchi: Each leads to a separate lungLungs: Lobes are not mirror imagesHilum: Blood vessels, nerves, lymphatic tissue, and bronchial tubes enter and exitWhat is the singular form of bronchi? (bronchus)Which lung is larger? (right)How many lobes does each lung have? (right: three, left: two)
9 Anatomy of Respiration Engage the class to identify the organs of the respiratory system.Trace the path of a breath of air.
