When comparing alveolar and atmospheric air
alveolar air is under greater pressure.
the partial pressure of oxygen is greater in alveolar air.
the partial pressure of carbon dioxide is greater in atmospheric air.
the partial pressure of nitrogen is greater in alveolar air.
Which of the following is true regarding the neural centers regulating respiration?
The apneustic center stimulates inspiration.
The pneumotaxic center stimulates inspiration.
The I neurons antagonize the effects of the inspiratory center.
The rhythmicity center is located in the pons.
produce respiratory alkalosis.
stimulate decreased ventilation.
stimulate firing of both the central and peripheral chemoreceptors.
be compensated for by metabolic acidosis.
The oxyhemoglobin dissociation curve is shifted to the left by
