inhaling *The process of taking air into the lungs is called inhalation or inspiration*


What causes air to stop moving into the lungs during inspiration?

Air stops moving into the lungs when the air pressure inside the lung is equal to the pressure of the air outside the body (the atmospheric pressure). The body creates negative air pressure inside the lungs by moving the diaphragm down and the chest wall out. This expands the volume of the lungs, creating negative air pressure, and air rushes in to fill the lungs.


Why are aveoli called the functional units of the lungs?

Because they are the lining of the lungs that begin the process of taking oxygen out of the air and into the blood stream. They are the parts that actually coe into contact with the "air" and are therefore called the functional part of the lungs.


Do butterflies breathe through lungs?

Respiration is any procedure for causing air to flow into and out of the lungs when natural breathing stop?

No, respiration is the act of moving air into and out of the lungs, aka breathing. Ventilation is the act of artificially moving air into and out of the lungs.


What is The mechanical process of moving air in and out of the lung?

the diaphragm tightens (moves down) expanding the lungs. This expansion creates the pressure in the lungs to decrease. Since nature always strives for equilibrium, high pressure moves to low pressure areas --> air fills the lungs. the diaphragm relaxes, moving back up in the chest cavity, increasing the pressure on the contents in the lungs. The air escapes the lungs to reach the lower pressure area outside our body.


What is the movement of air on and out the lungs?

The movement of air on and out the lungs is called respiration. The movement of air into the lungs is called inhalation (inspiration). The movement of air out of the lungs is called exhalation (expiration).


How is air moved into and out of the lungs and what organs are involved?

The main muscle of respiration (moving air into and out of the lungs) is the diaphragm.


How does air pressure work with your respiratory system?

Moving muscles in order to make air flow into and out of the lungs?

The term for moving muscles in order to make air flow into and out of the lungs is breathing. The main muscle that moves is the diaphragm, which sits just below the lungs and causes air to flow in and out as it contracts and expands.


How does your blood get oxygen?

Your blood receives oxygen from a process called external respiration which occurs in the lungs. When we breathe, we inhale and bring air from our environment into our lungs. Inside our lungs it comes into close contact with our blood inside millions of very small sacs called alveoli. It is here that a process of gas exchange, called diffusion, occurs. As the higher concentration of oxygen in the air comes close to the respiratory membrane, which separates our blood from the air, it allows oxygen to enter our blood and the excess carbon dioxide to leave. When we exhale, this excess carbon dioxide is released into the air and the oxygen-rich air outside our bodies is then ready to enter our lungs again to repeat the process.


The process by which oxygen and carbon dioxide are exchanged between cells the blood and air in the lungs is called?

respiration


What are the air spaces in the lungs called?

The air spaces in the lungs are called pulmonary alveoli. They are where gas exchange occurs in the lungs of mammals.


Is the diaphragm responsible of moving air in and out of lungs?

Yes


What is the air left in your lungs after you exhale called?

The air left in your lungs after exhaling is called "Expiratory Reserve".


What are the air sacs in the lungs called?

The tiny air sacs in the lungs are called the alveoli.


What does air pressure in the chest cavity increases?

Ok when you are inhaling air, the diaphragm is the one increasing the volume of your lungs. Since your lungs are expanding the ribs are moving forward and the spaces between them are increasing. When you are exhaling the diaphragm is moving up and the chest is lungs are relaxing and the ribs are moving back into there original position.


What is able to move up and down from moving air in and out of lungs?

In health, the diaphragm is able to move up and down from moving air in and out of lungs. But in some lung conditions, this movement is restricted.
