Example text

The volume of gas remaining is called the residual volume (RV). The aforementioned four volumes can be combined to form the following four capacities: (1) total lung capacity, (2) vital capacity, (3) inspiratory capacity, and (4) functional residual capacity. Total lung capacity (TLC) is the amount of gas in the respiratory system after a maximal inspiration. It is the sum of all four lung volumes. Vital capacity (VC) is the maximum volume of gas that can be expelled from the lungs after a maximal inspiration.

Logically, it does not matter how fast your heart goes if the volume being ejected is insufficient to meet circulatory demands. Stroke volume is critically dependent on venous return (preload), the force of ventricular contraction (contractility), and the resistance against which it is pumping throughout the stroke (afterload) (Fig. 1-24). Preload is equivalent to end-diastolic volume, that is, that volume of blood that is in the ventricle just before systole. As has been stated earlier, preload is dependent on venous return, and venous return is a function of right and left atrial end-diastolic pressures.

1 The latter serves as the almost exclusive source of parasympathetic preganglionic neurons for the entire vagal system. Sensory information that provides for homeostatic regulation of the heart enters the central nervous system (CNS) via afferent neurons traveling in both the glossopharyngeal (cranial nerve [CN] IX) and vagus (CN XII) nerves (see Fig. 1-29). These neurons have their cell bodies in ganglia on the respective cranial nerves and terminate in the caudal one third of the nucleus solitarius, along with sensory neurons serving the needs of the respiratory system.
