what lacks the support of cartilage
 
bronchioles
what is the movement of air into and out of the lungs
 
pulmonary ventilation
what is the amount of air moved into and out of the lungs during a single respiratory cycle
 
tidal volume
what are the respiratory control centers that set the basic rate of breathing
 
medulla oblangata

respiration
what prevents the lungs from over expanding as one breathes more deeply during strenous activity
 
inflation reflex
the voice box is the cartilaginous structure known as the larynx
 
true
most of the oxygen carried in the blood dissolves in the blood plasma
 
false
total lung capacity is the sum of the vital capacity and the residual volume
 
true
gas exchange is the diffusion of oxygen and carbon dioxide between lungs and blood
 
true
oxygen and carbon dioxide readily dissolve in blood plasmafalse
 
false
what is the opening into the trachea
 
windpipe
the tracheal tubes that enter into each lung are
 
bronchi
