 Synonyms & Historicals
Exhalation .
Exhaling .
Expiration, Respiratory .
Exhalations .
Expirations, Respiratory .
Respiratory Expiration .
Respiratory Expirations .
The act of BREATHING out. .
Inhalation .
Inspiration, Respiratory .
Respiratory Inspiration .
Inhaling .
Aspiration .
The act of BREATHING in. .
Respiration .
Breathing .
The act of breathing with the LUNGS, consisting of INHALATION, or the taking into the lungs of the ambient air, and of EXHALATION, or the expelling of the modified air which contains more CARBON DIOXIDE than the air taken in (Blakiston's Gould Medical Dictionary, 4th ed.). This does not include tissue respiration (= OXYGEN CONSUMPTION) or cell respiration (= CELL RESPIRATION). .
Work of Breathing .
Breathing Work .
Breathing Works .
RESPIRATORY MUSCLE contraction during INHALATION. The work is accomplished in three phases: LUNG COMPLIANCE work, that required to expand the LUNGS against its elastic forces; tissue resistance work, that required to overcome the viscosity of the lung and chest wall structures; and AIRWAY RESISTANCE work, that required to overcome airway resistance during the movement of air into the lungs. Work of breathing does not refer to expiration, which is entirely a passive process caused by elastic recoil of the lung and chest cage. (Guyton, Textbook of Medical Physiology, 8th ed, p406) .
Acting Out .
Expressing unconscious emotional conflicts or feelings, often of hostility or love, through overt behavior. .
Mouth Breathing .
Breathing, Mouth .
Breathings, Mouth .
Mouth Breathings .
Abnormal breathing through the mouth, usually associated with obstructive disorders of the nasal passages. .
