Well, we’ve covered a lot
of important topics.
Let’s review them very briefly.
Here, we’ve been able to identify the
afferent inputs to the pulmonary system
and the respiratory
centers of the brain.
We were also be able to explain
the mechanism whereby central,
which respond to hydrogen ions via what?
Carbon dioxide to peripheral chemoreceptors
which respond to carbon dioxide,
hydrogen ions and oxygen,
and how this affects with
different blood gasses.
We were also able to go through in
good detail how a certain change
in a blood gas causes a
this allows us to predict
the ventilatory response
to a given change in
an arterial blood gas.
