What is a goal for impaired gas exchange?
The patient will demonstrate improved ventilation and adequate oxygenation and blood gas levels within normal parameters for that patient.
- Demonstrate improved ventilation and adequate oxygenation
- Maintain cleanliness of the lungs and free of signs of respiratory distress
- Demonstrate effective cough and breath sounds are clean, no cyanosis and dyspnea (capable of removing the sputum, was able to breathe easily, no pursed lips)
- Vital signs within normal range

The ladybug has spiracles (holes in their body) on their sides and the thorax (body section which wings and legs are attached to) through which the air enters. The oxygen then… moves through the tubules in the ladybug's body along the concentration gradient to the respiring cells, and the carbon dioxide which is produced by the cells moves along the concentration gradient to the spiracles and leaves the insect.

Gas exchange works by diffusion. The movement of molecules from a Higher concentration gradient to an area of lower concentration gradient. Since there is more oxygen in the a…lveoli than in the capillaries, oxygen diffuses from the alveoli to the capillaries. And since there are more carbon dioxide in the capillaries than in the alveoli, carbon dioxide diffuses from the capillaries to the alveoli. (MORE)

Gaseous exchange is the diffusion of the oxygen and carbon dioxide that takes place in the alveoli part of the lungs. When oxygen goes into the alveoli, which then touches the… capillaries carrying blood, the oxygen is diffused into the blood cells and the carbon dioxide is diffused into te alveoli as an apposite reaction. The carbon dioxide is then breathed out of the body back into the air. (MORE)
This is when the red blood cells , sent from the heart, pass through the alveoli and the breathed in oxygen is diffused into the cell and carbon dioxide is diffused out. The… cells then travel around the body in the blood vessels where the oxygen is needed, before returning to the heart in the veins.The red blood cells have a substance in them called haemoglobin . When the red blood cells pick up oxygen in the lungs, it becomes oxhaemoglobin (MORE)
