If you were to increase the dead space volume of a subject by having them breathe through a
tube while they maintained their tidal volume and respiratory rate constant, which of the
following would occur?
(A) Pulmonary ventilation would increase
(B) Alveolar ventilation would decrease
(C) Pulmonary ventilation would decrease

High PO2 levels in the blood with cause which of the following?
1. A right shift in the oxy-hemoglobin dissociation curve
2. It will cause more oxygen to bind to hemoglobin (Hb)
3. Decrease in activity of the central chemoreceptors
4. Decreased activity of the peripheral chemoreceptors
Which one of the following statements is INCORRECT?
(A) Oxygen is transported in the blood mainly bound to hemoglobin
(B) The CO2 content of the systemic arterial blood is lower than in venous
(C) Oxygen delivery in the peripheral tissue occurs due to the low PO2 in the
tissue resulting in oxygen unloading from the hemoglobin
(D) There is more oxygen dissolved in plasma than carbon dioxide
(E) The amount of oxygen bound to hemoglobin decreases as body
temperature increases
