Explore the vital role of ventilation and gas exchange with this Understanding the Physiology of the Respiratory System learning program (ENGLISH ONLY).

A.D.A.M., Inc. provides fully animated, fully narrated, interactive eLearning programs relevant to health care and life sciences. This learning program is designed to introduce you to the physiology of the respiratory system. The program begins with an overview of ventilation, followed by an explanation of the factors that influence the flow of air in and out of the lungs. You will then learn about gas exchange and how it relates to the role of the hemoglobin molecules. You will also learn about the regulators of the respiratory system, such as the respiratory centers of the brainstem and the central and peripheral chemoreceptors.

Progress checks throughout the program will help reinforce key concepts. A final assessment at the end of the program will evaluate your ability to meet the learning objectives. At the end of this learning program you will be able to demonstrate your knowledge of respiratory system physiology using the appropriate language. This program will cover 51 topics and will take you approximately 60 minutes to complete.

Upon completion of this learning program, you will be able to:
• Describe the processes of pulmonary ventilation
• Explain the factors affecting the flow of air through the respiratory system
• Explain how gases are exchanged with the blood and tissues
• Describe the role of hemoglobin in gas transport
• Discuss the regulation of breathing

Program Features:
• Fully-narrated and animated learning
• Evaluations throughout the program
• Narration script accessible at all times
• Glossary available at all times
• Easy navigational tools
