Table 19.2 major events in inspiration p751 1. Nerve impulses travel on phrenic nerves to muscle fibers in the diaphragm, contracting them. 2. As the dome-shaped diaphragm moves downward, the thoracic cavity expands. 3. At the same time, the external intercostal muscle may contract, raising the ribs and expanding the thoracic cavity further. 4. The intra-alveolar pressure decreases. 5. Atmospheric pressure, greater on the outside, forces air into the respiratory tract through the air passages 6. The lungs will with air Table 19.3 major events in expiration p752 1. The diaphragm and external respiratory muscles relax 2. Elastic tissues of the lungs and thoracic cage, stretched during inspiration, suddenly recoil, and surface tension collapses alveolar walls 3. Tissues recoiling around the lungs increase the intra-alveolar pressure 4. Air is squeezed out of the lungs Table 19.4 Respiratory air volumes and capacities Name Tidal volume (TV) Inspiratory reserve volume (IRV) Expiratory reserve volume (ERV) Residual volume (RV) Inspiratory capacity (IC) Description Volume moved in or out of the lungs during a respiratory cycle Volume that can be inhaled during forced breathing in addition to resting tidal volume Volume that can be exhaled during forced breathing in addition to resting tidal volume Volume that remains in the lungs at all times Maximum volume of air that can be inhaled following exhalation of resting tidal volume: IC=TV+IRV Volume of air that remains in the lungs following exhalation of resting tidal volume: FRC=ERV+RV 2

6. Urine becomes more concentrated, and urine volume decreases Table 20.5 major events of micturition p.802 1. Urinary bladder distends as it fills with urine 2. Stretch receptors in the bladder wall are stimulated, and they signal the micturition center in the sacral spinal cord 3. Parasympathetic nerve impulses travel to the detrusor muscle, which responds by contracting rhythmically 4. The need to urinate is urgent 5. Voluntary contraction of the external urethral sphincter and inhibition of the micturition reflex impulses from the brainstem and the cerebral cortex prevent urination 6. Following the decision to urinate, the external urethral sphincter is relaxed, and impulses from the pons and the hypothalamus facilitate micturition reflex 7. The detrusor muscle contracts, and urine is expelled through the urethra 8. Neurons of the micturition reflex center fatigue, the detrusor muscle relaxes, and the bladder begins to fill with urine again Table 20.6 Developmental abnormalities of the Urinary system Condition Crossed fused ectopia Horseshoe kidney Nephrotic syndrome Oligomeganephronia Polycystic kidney disease Renal agenesis Renal dysplasia Renal hypoplasia Tubular dysgenesis Vesicoureteral reflux Innerconnections p804 Urinary system Integumentary system Description Fused kidneys that lie on one side of the midline Fusion of kidneys at one pole, usually lower, with most of each kidney on opposing side of midline Proteinuria (protein in urine) due to abnormal glomeruli Reduced number of nephrons that are abnormally large Cysts form in renal tubules and/or collecting ducts Absence of kidney Abnormal kidney structure Small kidney with fewer nephrons, but development normal Abnormal formation of proximal tubules Urine backs up from bladder to ureter or kidney

Table 21.1 regulation of water intake p814 1. The body loses as little as 1% of its water 2. An increase in the osmotic pressure of extracellular fluid due to water loss stimulates osmoreceptors in the thirst center 3. Activity in the hypothalamus causes the person to feel thirsty and to seek water 4. Drinking and the resulting distension of the stomach by water stimulate nerve impulses that inhibit the thirst center 5. Water is absorbed through the walls of the stomach and small intestine 6. The osmotic pressure of extracellular fluid returns to normal Table 21.2 events in regulation of water output p815 Dehydration 1. Extracellular fluid becomes osmotically more concentrated 2. Osmoreceptors in the hypothalamus are stimulated by the increase in the osmotic pressure of body fluids 3. The hypothalamus signals the posterior pituitary gland to release ADH into the blood 4. Blood carries ADH to kidneys 5. ADH causes the distal convoluted tubules and collecting ducts to increase water reabsorption 6. Urine output decreases, and further loss is minimized Table 21A factors associated with edema Factor Low plasma protein concentration Excess water intake 1. Extracellular fluid becomes osmotically less concentrated 2. This change stimulates osmoreceptors in the hypothalamus 3. The posterior pituitary gland decreases ADH release 4. Renal tubules decrease water reabsorption 5. Urine output increases and excess water is excreted

Obstruction of lymph vessels

Cause Liver disease and failure to synthesize proteins; kidney disease and loss of proteins in urine; lack of proteins in diet due to starvation Surgical removal of portions of lymphatic pathways; certain parasitic infections Venous obstructions or faulty venous valves

Effect Plasma osmotic pressure decreases; less fluid enters venular ends of capillaries by osmosis Back pressure in lymph vessels interferes with movement of fluid from interstitial spaces lymph capillaries Back pressure in veins increases capillary filtration and interferes with return of fluid from interstitial spaces into venular ends of capillaries Capillaries become abnormally

Increased venous pressure

permeable; fluid leaks from plasma into interstitial spaces Clinical applications: sodium and potassium imbalances p820 Extracellular fluids usually have high sodium ion concentrations, and intracellular fluid usually has high potassium ion concentration. The renal regulation of sodium is closely related to that of potassium because active reabsorption of sodium (under the influence of aldosterone) is accompanied by secretion (and excretion) of potassium. Thus, it is not surprising that conditions that alter sodium ion balance also affect potassium ion balance. Such disorders can be summarized as follows: 1. Low sodium concentration (hyponatremia): a. possible causes include prolonged sweating, vomiting or diarrhea; renal disease in which sodium is inadequately reabsorbed; adrenal cortex disorders in which aldosterone secretion is insufficient to promote the reabsorption of sodium (addison’s disease); and drinking too much water. b. Possible effects include development of fluid that is hypotonic and promotes the movement of water into the cells by osmosis. This is accompanied by the symptoms of water intoxication. 2. High sodium concentration (hypernatremia): a. Possible causes include excessive water loss by evaporation and diffusion, as may occur during high fever, or increased water loss accompanying diabetes insipidus, in one form of which ADH secretion is insufficient to maintain water conservation by the renal tubules and collecting ducts. b. Possible effects include disturbances of the CNS, such as confusion, stupor, and coma 3. Low potassium concentration(hypokalemia): a. Possible causes include excessive release of aldosterone by the adrenal cortex (cushing syndrome), which increases renal excretion of potassium; use of diuretic drugs that promote potassium excretion; kidney disease; and prolonged vomiting or diarrhea b. Possible effects include muscular weakness or paralysis, respiratory difficulty, and severe cardiac disturbances, such as atrial or ventricular arrhythmias 4. High potassium concentration (hyperkalemia): a. Possible causes include renal disease, which decreases potassium excretion; use of drugs that promote renal conservation of potassium; insufficient secretion of aldosterone by the adrenal cortex (Addison disease); or a shift of potassium from the intracellular fluid to the extracellular fluid, a change that accompanies an increase in plasma hydrogen ion concentration (acidosis). b. Possible effects include paralysis of the skeletal muscles and severe cardiac disturbances, such as cardiac arrest.
