Plese note the following T/F are extremely misleading.
In the following questions, determine whether they are True or False, and explain your reasoning.

T/F In a normal person at rest, the part of the respiratory cycle in which no air is flowing through the airways and the respiratory muscles are relaxed is at the end of inspiration, prior to expiration?

T/F Infants born prematurely frequently develop respiratory distress syndrome of the newborn because they have too few alveoli to exchange O2AND CO2 efficiently.

T/F In the systemic cappillaries, the Partial pressure of 02 OF the erythrocytes is greater than the Partial Pressure 02 of the plasma, causing a shift from oxyhemoglobin to doxyhemoglobin.

T/F A decrease in arterial Partial Pressure of O2 stimulates increased ventilation by causing increased firing of action potentials in the afferent neurons from the carotid and aortic body chemoreceptors.

T/F Large amounts of protein in a person's urine indicate that the person is eating a high-protein diet.

T/F A decrease in arterial Partial Pressure of O2 stimulates increased ventilation by causing increased firing of action potentials in the afferent neurons from the carotid and aortic body chemoreceptors.
