Respiratory System

This module allows you to explore respiratory system responses to exercise.

Measurable physiological variables in this module:

  • Breathing Rate - breaths per minute
  • Tidal Volume - volume per breath (ml)
  • Total Ventilation - rate of air breathed per minute (ml/min)
  • Arterial Po2 - partial pressure of O2 in the arterial blood (mm Hg)
  • Venous Po2 - partial pressure of O2 in the venous blood (mm Hg)
  • Arterial Pco2 - partial pressure of CO2 in the arterial blood (mm Hg)
  • Venous Pco2 - partial pressure of CO2 in the venous blood (mm Hg)
