Wiktionary, the free dictionary.

In biochemistry, respiration may refer to: Wiktionary (a portmanteau of wiki and dictionary) is a multilingual, Web-based project to create a free content dictionary, available in over 151 languages. ...

  • Cellular respiration, the process in which the chemical bonds of energy-rich molecules such as glucose are converted into energy usable for life processes
  • Anaerobic respiration, a process that allows respiration without use of oxygen
  • Plant respiration, the enzymatic oxidation of substrates in plants, leading to the release of carbon dioxide respiration.


In physiology, respiration may refer to : Cellular respiration was discovered by mad scientist Mr. ... Anaerobic respiration refers to the oxidation of molecules in the absence of oxygen to produce energy, in opposition to Aerobic respiration which does use oxygen. ... Plant respiration is the oxidation of certain substrates by enzymes, leading to a release of carbon dioxide. ... This article or section does not cite any references or sources. ...

  • Respiration (physiology), the process by which multicellular organisms capture and excrete the gaseous fuel and waste of cellular respiration, absorbing oxygen and disposing of carbon dioxide.
    • Aquatic respiration, the process whereby an aquatic animal obtains oxygen from water
    • External respiration, the process by which gases are exchanged between the atmosphere and the pulmonary loop of circulation
    • Muscles of respiration
    • Respiratory system of humans and other mammals
    • Respiratory tract in humans is the part of the anatomy that has to do with the process of (physiological) respiration
    • Respiratory rate
    • Agonal respiration
    • Apneustic respirations
    • Cheyne-Stokes respiration
    • Biot's respiration
    • Respiratory arrest, the cessation of the normal tidal flow of the lungs due to paralysis of the diaphragm
    • Hypoventilation (also known as respiratory depression) occurs when ventilation is inadequate to perform needed gas exchange
    • Inspiratory paroxysmal respiration (also known as "reverse sneezing"), a phenomenon observed in dogs (Especially small dogs)

Medical devices involving respiration include: In animal physiology, respiration is the transport of oxygen from the ambient air to the tissue cells and the transport of carbon dioxide in the opposite direction. ... Aquatic respiration refers to the process whereby an aquatic animal obtains oxygen from the surrounding water. ... External respiration refers to the exchange of gases between the atmosphere and the pulmonary loop of circulation including the lungs. ... Pulmonary circulation is the portion of the cardiovascular system which carries oxygen-depleted blood away from the heart, to the lungs, and returns oxygenated blood back to the heart. ... The various muscles of respiration aid in both inspiration and expiration, which require changes in the pressure within the thoracic cavity. ... Among quadrupeds, the respiratory system generally includes tubes, such as the bronchi, used to carry air to the lungs, where gas exchange takes place. ... In humans the respiratory tract is the part of the anatomy that has to do with the process of respiration or breathing. ... It has been suggested that this article or section be merged with Minute volume. ... Agonal respiration is an abnormal pattern of breathing characterized by shallow, slow (3-4 per minute), irregular inspirations followed by irregular pauses. ... Apneustic respiration is an abnormal pattern of breathing characterized by regular deep breaths followed by pauses at full inspiration. ... Cheyne-Stokes respiration is an abnormality of the pattern of breathing. ... Biots respirations, sometimes also called cluster respiration, is an abnormal pattern of breathing characterized by groups of quick, shallow inspirations followed by regular or irregular periods of apnea. ... Respiratory arrest is the cessation of the normal tidal flow of the lungs due to paralysis of the diaphragm, collapse of the lung or any number of respiratory failures. ... In medicine, hypoventilation (also known as respiratory depression) occurs when ventilation is inadequate (hypo means below) to perform needed gas exchange. ... Reverse sneezing (also called backwards sneezing) or inspiratory paroxysmal respiration is a phenomenon observed in dogs whose exact cause is unknown but may be due to nasal, pharyngeal, or sinus irriation (such as an allergy) or the dogs attempt to remove mucus. ...

Other uses include: Respiratory therapy is categorized as an allied health profession in the United States and Canada. ... Inhalation therapy is a discipline of medicine which deals with the oxygenation and respiratory system of clients. ... Wikibooks has a book on the topic of First Aid Artificial respiration is a technique for providing air for a person who is not breathing on their own, but whose heart is still beating. ... It has been suggested that gas mask be merged into this article or section. ...

  • Carbon respiration, a phrase used in combination with carbon storage to calculate the amount of carbon (as CO2) flux occurring in the atmosphere through the various processes that add and subtract atmospheric carbon
  • Respiration rate, a parameter which is used in ecological and agronomical modelling
There are very few or no other articles that link to this one. ... The respiration rate is a parameter which is used in ecological and agronomical modelling. ... Image File history File links Disambig_gray. ...
