expiratory reserve volumemaximum amount of air that can be forcefuly exhaled after a tidal exhalation
resicual volumevolume of air remaining in the lungs after a maximum forced exhalation
vital capacitymaximum volume of air that can be exhaled after maximum inhalation
functional residual capacityvolume of airi remaining in the lungs after normal exhalation
total lung capacitytotal volume of air in the lungs after a maximum forced inhalation
spirogramidealized tracing o fthe various respiratory volumes and theri relationship to each other
obstructive vs restrictive pulmonary disordersobstructive-cannot fully exhale, restrictive- cannot fully inhale
glomerular filtrationblood flows through glomerular capillaries, protein free plasma filters into the Bowman's capsule
three important functions of nephronglomerular filtration, tubular reabsorption, tubular secretion
tubular reabsorptionmoves filtrate back into the blood, leaving mainly salt water and wastes in the lume of the tubule
tubular secretionkidneys can rid the blood of additional unwanted substances
