During inspiration, the diaphragm and external intercostal muscles contract, causing the rib cage to expand and move outward, and expanding the thoracic cavity and lung volume. This creates a lower pressure within the lung than that of the atmosphere, causing air to be drawn into the lungs.
Inspiration is the phase of ventilation in which air enters the lungs. It is initiated by contraction of the inspiratory muscles: Diaphragm – flattens,extending the superior/inferior dimension of the thoracic cavity. External intercostal muscles – elevates the ribs and sternum,extending the anterior/posterior dimension of the thoracic cavity.

What causes inspiration breathing?
Inspiration (inhalation) is the process of taking air into the lungs. It is the active phase of ventilation because it is the result of muscle contraction. During inspiration, the diaphragm contracts and the thoracic cavity increases in volume. This decreases the intraalveolar pressure so that air flows into the lungs.
What is the main driving factor in breathing?
Factors Influencing Breathing CO2 levels are the main influence, oxygen levels only affect breathing with dangerously low. If CO2 levels increase, the respiratory center( medulla and pons) is stimulated to increase the rate and depth of breathing.
What stimulates you to breathe?
Normally, an increased concentration of carbon dioxide is the strongest stimulus to breathe more deeply and more frequently. Conversely, when the carbon dioxide concentration in the blood is low, the brain decreases the frequency and depth of breaths.
What are the two main muscles for inspiration breathing in?
The primary inspiratory muscles are the diaphragm and external intercostals.
What inspired inspiration?
Inspiration is the phase of ventilation in which air enters the lungs. It is initiated by contraction of the inspiratory muscles: Diaphragm – flattens, extending the superior/inferior dimension of the thoracic cavity.
What are the steps of inspiration?
Terms in this set (10)
- inspiration 1. inspiratory muscles contract.
- inspiration 2. thoracic cavity volume increases.
- inspiration 3. lungs are stretched.
- inspiration 4. intrapulmonary pressure drops.
- inspiration 5. air flows into lungs down pressure gradient until pulmonary pressure is 0.
- expiration 1.
- expiration 2.
- expiration 3.
What controls voluntary breathing?
The motor cortex within the cerebral cortex of the brain controls voluntary respiration (the ascending respiratory pathway). Voluntary respiration may be overridden by aspects of involuntary respiration, such as chemoreceptor stimulus, and hypothalamus stress response.
What are the 2 respiratory drives?
Indeed, in healthy humans, the respiratory drive determines the average rate of increase of 1) the electrical activity of respiratory motoneurons (mainly the phrenic nerve in quiet breathing); 2) the electrical activity of the diaphragm and, during strenuous breathing, of other inspiratory muscles; and 3) the
What is the most important trigger for breathing?
We absolutely have to get rid of this carbon dioxide, so carbon dioxide is the main trigger to keep us breathing. (By the way, low oxygen levels are also a reason to breathe – but a much weaker trigger than the high carbon dioxide levels in your blood.)
What are the 5 factors affecting respiration?
The eight environmental factors effecting the rate of respiration are: (1) Oxygen Content of the Atmosphere (2) Effect of Temperature (3) Effect of Light (4) Effect of Water Contents (5) Effect of Respirable Material (6) Effect of Carbon Dioxide Concentration (7) Protoplasmic Conditions and (8) Other Factors.
What are 4 factors that affect breathing?
Factors That Affect Respiration Rate
- Brainstem Rhythmicity Center. Breathing usually takes place outside of your conscious awareness.
- Blood Carbon Dioxide. The amount of carbon dioxide in the blood exerts a strong influence on respiratory rate.
- Blood pH.
What is the hypoxic drive influenced by?
Nut Shell from medical book: The hypoxic drive theory is a result of chronic CO2 retention not the other way around. The body has a high CO2, low oxygen, and low pH( whether it’s due to respiratory or metabolic) drive to breath.
Which of the following is the last step that produces an inspiration?
Which of the following is the last step that produces an inspiration? The intra-alveolar pressure becomes lower than the atmospheric pressure.
What is the prime mover of inhalation inspiration in breathing?
The primary muscles for inhalation are the diaphragm, and the external intercostals; for exhalation the primary muscles are the internal intercostals, the intercostalis intimi, and the subcostals.
What are the accessory muscles of inspiration?
These accessory muscles of inspiration include the sternocleidomastoid, pectoralis minor and major, serratus anterior, latissimus dorsi, and serratus posterior superior muscles. Expiration, in contrast, is a passive process produced by elastic recoil of the thoracic cage.
