Respiratory Physiology

by Thad Wilson, PhD

Delve into one of the most important components of human physiology – breathing

Breathing and the exchange of gases in the body is one of the most important processes which keeps human beings alive. Thus, understanding the respiratory system is essential for anyone willing to learn about physiology, the function of a healthy body. Using an organ systems approach, Professor Thad Wilson will introduce you to the main components of the respiratory system, their functions and the way they interact with each other.

The following subjects will be covered:
  • pulmonary blood flow and its relation to the general circulatory system
  • increases and decreases in pulmonary blood flow and the factors influencing them
  • the transport of O2 and CO2 including oxygen-hemoglobin dissociation 
  • the respiratory cycle and how diseases alter it 
  • hypercapnia, hypoxemia and their clinical appearance 
  • the regulation of the respiratory system in the brain via receptors 
  • the effects of barometric pressure on the pulmonary system 
Schemata and case studies will help you understand these complex issues. Upon completion of this course, medical students will understand the function of the respiratory system and all its components. They will thus be fully prepared for their medical exams. Moreover, practicing physicians may use this course to refresh their knowledge about the physiology of the respiratory system.
