About Introduction to Pulmonary Ventilation: Process of respiration and physiology of the respiratory system Virtual Lab Simulation
Breathing is a matter of life or death! In this simulation, you will be introduced to the respiratory system and what makes it work. You will learn the different stages of pulmonary ventilation and calculate the amount of air our lungs manage with every single breath. Everyone is different and many things, like asthma or pregnancy, can affect the way our respiratory system performs.
Observe the breathing process
One of the great things about being in a virtual lab is that you can use a very realistic and high-tech hologram to observe all the muscles and organs that play an important role in the process of breathing. Click on different buttons to choose between quiet breathing, inspiration, or expiration and experience how the lungs, diaphragm, and other muscles behave accordingly.
Test lung volumes with a spirometer
Take advantage of the opportunity to use a spirometer to test the lung volumes of three different people. Here, you will learn how some of the ways pregnancy or asthma affects the functioning of the respiratory system.
Get a more detailed look at how different lungs perform by calculating their real capacities using the resulting values from the spirometry test. Observe how values like the Vital Capacity and the Functional Residual Capacity vary between the subjects and match each pair of lungs with their owner.
