Vital capacity is the greatest volume of air that can be expelled from the lungs after taking the deepest possible breath.
Vital capacity measured by a wet or regular spirometer.
In combination with other physiological measurements, the vital capacity can help make a diagnosis of underlying lung disease.
Vital capacity used to determine the severity of respiratory muscle involvement in neuromuscular disease
It can guide treatment decisions in Guillain–Barré syndrome and myasthenic crisis.
Residual volume is the amount of air that remains in lungs after fully exhaling.
Tests to measure residual volume check how well the lungs are functioning.
Residual volume is measured by: A gas dilution test.
Question No. 15
Hypothalamus links the nervous system to the endocrine system via the pituitary gland (hypophysis).
It is responsible for certain metabolic processes and other activities of the autonomic nervous system
It synthesizes and secretes certain neurohormones, called releasing hormones which stimulate or inhibit the secretion of pituitary hormones
The hypothalamus controls body temperature, hunger, important aspects of parenting and attachment behaviours, thirst, fatigue, sleep, and circadian rhythms
Question No. 14
About 40 percent of the body weight is muscle, which is
composed of about 20 percent muscle protein
Question No. 18
Hemiplegia is paralysis of one side of the body
The paralysis occurs on the side opposite the brain disorder
This is because the motor axons from the cerebral cortex enter the medulla oblongata and form two well-defined bands known as the pyramidal Tracts.
The majority of the fibers in these tracts cross to the opposite side
Therefore damage to the right cerebral hemisphere affects motor control of the left half of the body.
