This is Part 2 of a 2-part series on the respiratory system (the lungs!). In Part 2, we will delve into the graphs of the respiratory system, as well its connections to other systems such as the circulatory systems and renal systems.

Predict compensations for respiratory and metabolic disturbances to the bicarbonate buffering systems
Lung volume and capacity graph (spirograph)
Connections between respiratory and circulatory systems, respiratory and renal systems
O2 dissociation curve
The bicarbonate buffering system
The Davenport plot
Fetal circulation and shunts
On the MCAT
The respiratory system is not a high-yield topic but it is heavily integrated into other systems like circulatory and renal
I think these webinars are really helpful! I like how they’re styled like a TED talk, so they don’t interfere with the day, but they’re really helpful review 🙂
I found everything helpful about these webinars: the explanations, the illustrations, just everything!
Amazing material conveyed concisely and in great detail!
The wealth of information and sample questions are great.
