*  Surface diffusion
... Also, the model displays examples of both nearest-neighbor jumps straight and next-nearest-neighbor jumps diagonal. Oura, Lifshits, Saranin, Zotov, and Katayama 2003, p. 325 The process can generally be thought of in terms of particles jumping between adjacent adsorption sites on a surface, as in figure 1. Just as in bulk diffusion, this motion is typically a thermally promoted process with rates increasing with increasing temperature. Many systems display diffusion behavior that deviates from the conventional model of nearest-neighbor jumps. Various analytical tools may be used to elucidate surface diffusion mechanisms and rates, the most important of which are field ion microscopy and scanning tunneling microscopy. Oura, Lifshits, Saranin, Zotov, and Katayama 2003, p. 'x' is displacement; 'E x ' is energy; 'Q' is the heat of adsorption or binding energy; 'a' is the spacing between adjacent adsorption sites; 'E diff ' is the barrier to diffusion.

*  Atomic diffusion
... 'Atomic diffusion' is a diffusion process whereby the random thermally-activated movement of atom s in a solid results in the net transport of atoms. For example, helium atoms inside a balloon can diffuse through the wall of the balloon and escape, resulting in the balloon slowly deflating. oxygen, nitrogen have lower mobilities and thus diffuse more slowly through the balloon wall. There is a concentration gradient in the balloon wall, because the balloon was initially filled with helium, and thus there is plenty of helium on the inside, but there is relatively little helium on the outside helium is not a major component of air. The rate of transport is governed by the diffusivity and the concentration gradient. In crystals See also References External links. In the crystal solid state, diffusion within the crystal lattice occurs by either interstitial or substitutional mechanisms and is referred to as lattice diffusion. In substitutional lattice diffusion self-diffusion for example, the atom can only m...

*  Diffusion limited enzyme
... A 'Diffusion limited enzyme' is an enzyme which catalyses a reaction so efficiently that the rate limiting step is that of substrate diffusion into the active site, or product diffusion out. Since the rate of catalysis of such enzymes is set by the diffusion-controlled reaction, it therefore represents an intrinsic, physical constraint on evolution a maximum peak height in the fitness landscape. Diffusion limited perfect enzymes are very rare. This is due to both the chemical limitations of difficult reactions, and the evolutionary limitations that such high reaction rates do not confer any extra fitness. An illustration to show a Alberty-Hammes-Eigen model, and b Chou’s model, where E denotes the enzyme whose active site is colored in red, while the substrate S in blue.

... - Chemistry2011.org. Chemistry 2011 .org All About Chemistry... Chemistry 2011 Home. Shape changers: Surface diffusion plays a key role in defining the shapes of catalytic nanoparticles. 8, 2013 — Controlling the shapes of nanometer -sized catalytic and electrocatalytic particles made from noble metals such as platinum and palladium may be more complicated than previously thought. Using systematic experiments, researchers have investigated how surface diffusion -- a process in which atoms move from one site to another on nanoscale surfaces -- affects the final shape of the particles. "Fundamentally, it is important to understand how these shapes are formed, to visualize how this happens on structures over a length scale of about 100 atoms .". Controlling the shape of nanoparticles is important in catalysis and other applications that require the use of expensive noble metals such as platinum and palladium. Though the importance of particle shape at the nanoscale has been well known, researchers hadn't be...

*  Saffman–Delbrück model
The 'Saffman–Delbrück model' describes a lipid membrane as a thin layer of viscous fluid, surrounded by a less viscous bulk liquid. This picture was originally proposed to determine the diffusion coefficient of membrane proteins, but has also been used to describe the dynamics of fluid domains within lipid membranes. The Saffman–Delbrück formula is often applied to determine the size of an object embedded in a membrane from its observed diffusion coefficient, and is characterized by the weak logarithmic dependence of diffusion constant on object radius. frame|Embedded cylindrical object of radius a in a membrane with viscosity \eta m, height h, surrounded by bulk fluid with viscosity \eta f |right.

*  Analysis of Binding Events and Diffusion in Living Cells - OpenThesis
... Upload and Search Theses and Dissertations - OpenThesis. Analysis of Binding Events and Diffusion in Living Cells. In this thesis, we have investigated several aspects of how diffusion properties influence the observability of cellular binding kinetics and how they can be used to obtain information about the environment of proteins and other molecules. First, the binding kinetics of the coat protein I COPI vesicles machinery were investigated. Three proteins are mainly responsible for the formation of COPI vesicles; coatomer, ARF1 and ARFGap1. From biochemical studies, it was expected that ARF1 and coatomer would show similar binding kinetics to the Golgi membranes. Surprisingly, the recovery constant of coatomer was twice that of ARF1. We could show that this did not reflect a difference in the actual binding kinetics, but difference due to a diffusion-limited exchange of coatomer between the cytosol and the membrane. We found that ARF1 and ARF-GAP1 are highly mobile in the cytosol, whereas coatomer dif...

*  Facilitated diffusion
'''Facilitated diffusion''' also known as '''facilitated transport''' or '''passive-mediated transport''' is the process of spontaneous passive transport as opposed to active transport of molecules or ions across a biological membrane via specific transmembrane integral proteins. 1 Being passive, facilitated transport does not directly require chemical energy from ATP hydrolysis in the transport step itself; rather, molecules and ions move down their concentration gradient reflecting its diffusive nature. Facilitated diffusion is different from free diffusion in several ways. First, the transport relies on molecular binding between the cargo and the membrane-embedded channel or carrier protein. Second, the rate of facilitated diffusion is saturable with respect to the concentration difference between the two phases; unlike free diffusion which is linear in the concentration difference. Third, the temperature dependence of facilitated transport is substantially different due to the presence of an activated bin...

AP Biology. / Cell Diffusion. Learn math, science, English SAT ACT from high-quaility study videos by expert teachers Preview playing in 3. Cell Diffusion. 19,524 views. Cell diffusion is a type of passive cell transport. In diffusion, molecules move from areas of high concentration to areas of low concentration in order to decrease the concentration gradient. Diffusion from areas of low concentration to areas of high concentration is not energetically favorable. So diffusion is called or defined as the movement of particles from area of high concentration to an area of low concentration. So as time goes by some of them wind up over here, as they spread out and they bump into water molecules and then bounce off this way and then they bounce off that way, and this guy is moving here and that guy is moving there and this guy is moving there. No but every time one of these guys moves this way, one of these guys moves that way to replace him. And that's where you have 2 sides of a beaker, one with high concen...

Abstract/OtherAbstract:. Applications of permeabilized cell and skinned fiber techniques in combination with methods of mathematical modelling for studies of mitochondrial function in the cell are critically evaluated. Mathematical models may be useful tools for explaining biological phenomena, but only if they are selected by fitting the computing results with real experimental data. Confocal microscopy has been used in experiments with permeabilized cardiomyocytes and myocardial fibers to determine the maximal diffusion distance from medium to the core of cells, which is shown not to exceed 8-10 microm. This is a principal index for correctly explaining high apparent Km for exogenous ADP 200-300 ...

It took a quiet Saturday morning for me to catch up on the fact that the co-founder of ConsumerLab.com , Dr William Bill Obermeyer, was featured on NPR earlier this week. Allison Aubrey of NPR's Morning Edition produced a thoughtful four-and-a-half minute segment on the seven-year mission of Dr Obermeyer and colleagues to provide consumers with independent laboratory testing of specific brands of herbal medicines and dietary supplements. Readers of Terra Sigillata will know that I have long recommended ConsumerLab.com as one of the top subscription services to learn about herbal medicines.

*  Diffusion bonding
... 'Diffusion bonding' is a solid-state welding technique used in metalworking, capable of joining similar and dissimilar metals. It operates on the materials science principle of solid-state diffusion, wherein the atoms of two solid, metallic surfaces intermingle over time under elevated temperature. Diffusion bonding is typically implemented by applying both high pressure and high temperature to the materials to be welded; it is most commonly used to weld "sandwiches" of alternating layers of thin metal foil and metal wires or filaments. It may be performed with similar and dissimilar metals, reactive and refactory metals, or pieces of varying thicknesses. Diffusion bonding is most often used for jobs either difficult or impossible to weld by other means, due to its relatively high cost. Examples include welding materials normally impossible to join via liquid fusion, such as zirconium and beryllium ; materials with very high melting points such as tungsten ; alternating layers of different metals which m...

*  Integrodifference equation
In mathematics, an 'integrodifference equation' is a recurrence relation on a function space, of the following form:. : n {t+1} x = \int {\Omega} k x, y \, f n t y \, dy,. where \{n t\}\, is a sequence in the function space and \Omega\, is the domain of those functions. In most applications, for any y\in\Omega\,, k x,y \, is a probability density function on \Omega\,. Note that in the definition above, n t can be vector valued, in which case each element of \{n t\} has a scalar valued integrodifference equation associated with it. Integrodifference equations are widely used in mathematical biology, especially theoretical ecology, to model the dispersal and growth of populations. In this case, n t x is the population size or density at location x at time t, f n t x describes the local population growth at location x and k x,y, is the probability of moving from point y to point x, often referred to as the dispersal kernel. In this case, some natural conditions on f and k imply that there is a well-defined sprea...

Each molecule will now strike the sides of the vessel a greater number of times in a second, but besides this, the impulse of each blow will be increased in the same proportion, so that the part of the pressure due to each molecule will vary as the square of the velocity. Its molecules have a velocity of six hundred metres per second, so that, if their course had not been interrupted by striking against the molecules of air in the hall, every one in the most distant gallery would have smelt ammonia before I was able to pronounce the name of the gas. But, according to our theory, the same kind of motion is going on in calm air as in the inter-diffusing gases, the only difference being that we can trace the molecules from one place to another more easily when they are of a different nature from those through which they are diffusing.

Lean Medical Device Startup: Test Your Problem Hypothesis.  Think about it this way: When you launch a new medical device, you are asking physicians, hospitals, nurses and patients to change medical practice.  So get it through your head that medical practice will only change if your new device solves an important problem.  That’s why the lean medical device startup defines its problem hypotheses first.  That’s also why the lean medical medical device startup tests its problem hypotheses early and often. Testing the problem hypothesis means gathering external data from early adopters, to verify the severity and frequency-of-occurrence of the problem.  Track down your early adopters, and ask them about your problem hypothesis, its severity, and its frequency-of-occurrence. Around 0.5% to 1% of coronary stent recipients suffer a heart attack due to late stent thrombosis, and the risk of late stent thrombosis requires the patient to take anti-platelet medications to reduce the risk of late stent thrombosis...

February 12, 2013 by talentrange. Better Innovation. . James Scott. CEO FORUM .APRIL 2012. . Without the ability to innovate, businesses die. Yet firms often stumble when it comes to even modest attempts at innovation. The truth of the matter is that successful innovation is hard. Few businesses get it consistently right, but most can learn how to improve their innovation strike rate. Innovation enjoys an exalted status. No one has a bad word for it. Is there a corporate mission statement anywhere that fails to mention innovation. Has anyone ever seen an organisation describe itself as ‘non-innovative’. People certainly possess high expectations of innovation. The website for the federal government’s Department of Industry, Innovation, Science, Research and Tertiary Education tells us that innovation ‘…is the key to answering the challenge of climate change, the challenge of national security, the age-old challenge of disease and want. It is the key to creating a future that is better than the pa...

*  Next-generation lithography
NGL issues. Next generation lithography also generally makes use of ionizing radiation, leading to secondary electrons which can limit resolution to effectively > 20 nm. If a highly scalable NGL technology were to become readily available, late adopters of leading-edge technology would immediately have the opportunity to leapfrog the current use of advanced but costly photolithography techniques, at the expense of the early adopters of leading-edge technology, who have been the key investors in NGL. Suppose company A manufactures down to 130 nm, while company B manufactures down to 22 nm, by extending its photolithography capability through years of successive resolution enhancements, such as wavelength change i.e., from 248 nm to 193 nm, more and more aggressive optical proximity correction, more and more costly phase-shift masks, converting to immersion lithography and finally, implementing double patterning. If an NGL were deployed for the 15 nm node, both companies would benefit, but company A currently m...

Original URL: http://www.theregister.co.uk/2013/02/04/hydrogen could be mainstream car fuel by 2030/ Report: Over 1.5 MILLION UK drivers will have hydrogen cars by 2030 Fuel cell cars on roads in 2015. Boom - ahem - to follow, says quango By Tony Smith Posted in Hardware, 4th February 2013 15:03 GMT Hydrogen fuel cell cars won’t hit the market until 2015, but with the right investment in infrastructure, more than a million and a half of us could be driving one by 2030, with annual sales topping 300,000 vehicles, an evaluation conducted by government and industry has forecast. A timeline drawn up by UKH2Mobility - a consortium of 11 car-makers, fuel cell specialists and hydrogen producers, three government departments and one fuel retailer, Morrisons - assumes there will be little demand for hydrogen fuel cell HFC powered vehicles between the five years from the initial availability of such cars and 2020, but demand will dramatically increase in the following 10 years. The boom is predicated on the 10 per...

The narrow innovation pathway. “ Innovation is the pathway to travel and seek out our future”. We must strive and push for more of a complete understanding of the innovation process to manage this thoroughly. The process today needs to manage ideas into conversion for profit and growth at increasing speed as well, it is demanded. To make it work you need a common language and a common approach well understood by the innovation leader designated to deliver. My last blog dealt with the new extended innovation funnel, with the argument that ideas that enter the internal organizations innovation process are actually in the middle of the process. As ideas and concepts mature, you constantly build and restate the business case, again and again so it remains clear why this concept remains important. The concept-to-customer approach is an innovation pathway that constantly narrows down. We do need a concept-to-customer approach across innovation. It is by having this complete understanding of the entire innovatio...

Summary The usual practice is to create a suggestion box for new innovations and leave it open to everyone interested in the new ideas. Problem The usual practice is to create an online suggestion box for new innovations and leave it fully accessible to everyone interested in the new ideas. However, innovators inside the organization often long for certain exclusivity. Solution Let the innovators in the organization form a club. Non-members have visibility of the proposed innovations to drive curiosity and interest to join the club. Moreover, the managed privacy strategy and other tools may be adopted for this club as well, aiming to de-risk the innovation process i.e. For the more detailed description and comments on this tool please see the HACK: MINORITY REPORT: TOOLS TO OVERCOME THE INNOV...

(1/1189) Medical technology and inequity in health care: the case of Korea.

There has been a rapid influx of high cost medical technologies into the Korean hospital market. This has raised concerns about the changes it will bring for the Korean health care sector. Some have questioned whether this diffusion will necessarily have positive effects on the health of the overall population. Some perverse effects of uncontrolled diffusion of technologies have been hinted in recent literature. For example, there is a problem of increasing inequity with the adoption of expensive technologies. Utilization of most of the expensive high technology services is not covered by national health insurance schemes; examples of such technologies are Ultra Sonic, CT Scanner, MRI, Radiotherapy, EKG, and Lithotripter. As a result, the rich can afford expensive high technology services while the poor cannot. This produces a gradual evolution of classes in health service utilization. This study examines how health service utilization among different income groups is affected by the import of high technologies. It discusses changes made within the health care system, and explains the circumstances under which the rapid and excessive diffusion of medical technologies occurred in the hospital sector.  (+info)

(2/1189) An audit of distribution and use of guidelines for management of head injury.

Ensuring effective distribution of guidelines is an important step towards their implementation. To examine the effectiveness of dissemination of a guidelines card on management of head injury and determine its usefulness to senior house officers (SHOs), a questionnaire survey was performed in May 1990, after distribution of the cards in induction packs for new doctors and at postgraduate lectures and displaying the guidelines in accident and emergency departments and wards. A further survey, in March 1992, assessed the impact of modifying the distribution. All (175) SHOs working in general surgery, accident and emergency medicine, orthopaedics, and neurosciences on 1 February 1990 in 19 hospitals including two neurosurgical units in Northern region were sent self completion questionnaires about awareness, receipt, use, and perceived usefulness of the guidelines. 131 of 163(80%) SHOs in post responded (median response from hospitals 83% (range 50%-100%)). Over three quarters (103, 79%) of SHOs were aware of the guidelines and 82(63%) had ever possessed a guidelines card. Only 36(44%) acquired the card in the induction pack. 92%(98/107) found them useful and 81% (89/110) referred to them to some extent. Owning and carrying the card and referring to guidelines were associated with departmental encouragement to use the guidelines. Increasing the displays of guidelines in wards and departments and the supply of cards to consultants in accident and emergency medicine as a result of this survey did not increase the number of SHOs who received cards (52/83, 63%), but more (71/83, 86%) were aware of the guidelines. The guidelines were welcomed by SHOs and used in treating patients with head injury, but their distribution requires improvement. Increased use of the guidelines may be achieved by introducing other distribution methods and as a result of encouragement by senior staff.  (+info)

(3/1189) Achieving 'best practice' in health promotion: improving the fit between research and practice.

This paper is based on the proposition that transfer of knowledge between researchers and practitioners concerning effective health promotion interventions is less than optimal. It considers how evidence concerning effectiveness in health promotion is established through research, and how such evidence is applied by practitioners and policy makers in deciding what to do and what to fund when addressing public health problems. From this examination it is concluded that there are too few rewards for researchers which encourage research with potential for widespread application and systematic development of promising interventions to a stage of field dissemination. Alternatively, practitioners often find themselves in the position of tackling a public health problem where evidence of efficacy is either lacking, or has to be considered alongside a desire to respond to expressed community needs, or the need to respond to political imperative. Several different approaches to improving the fit between research and practice are proposed, and they include improved education and training for practitioners, outcomes focussed program planning, and a more structured approach to rewarding research development and dissemination.  (+info)

(4/1189) Theoretical framework for implementing a managed care curriculum for continuing medical education--Part I.

Healthcare reform has created a new working environment for practicing physicians, as economic issues have become inseparably intertwined with clinical practice. Although physicians have recognized this change, and some are returning to school for formal education in business and healthcare administration, formal education may not be practical or desirable for the majority of practicing physicians. Other curriculum models to meet the needs of these professionals should be considered, particularly given the growing interest in continuing education for physicians in the areas of managed care and related aspects of practice management. Currently, no theory-based models for implementing a managed care curriculum specifically for working physicians have been developed. This paper will integrate diffusion theory, instructional systems design theory, and learning theory as they apply to the implementation of a managed care curriculum for continuing medical education. Through integration of theory with practical application, a CME curriculum for practicing physicians can be both innovative as well as effective. This integration offers the benefit of educational programs within the context of realistic situations that physicians can apply to their own work settings.  (+info)

(5/1189) Empiric examination of physician behavior in a changing healthcare market.

We hypothesized that, in the current healthcare environment, medical providers have strong economic incentives to introduce new technology and treat patients more extensively. We examined physician reimbursement for medical procedures in Utah in the early 1990s, a period of increasing utilization of managed care methods, using a cross-section time series and a supply side model to analyze how physician behavior changed during this period of time. Our findings suggest that physicians have acted to maintain their revenue by requesting reimbursement for more procedures as the reimbursement level per procedure decreased. We conclude that increased volatility in reimbursement levels and increased adjudication pressure from payers provide signals to physicians to act strategically to protect their revenue stream.  (+info)

(6/1189) A tale of two (or more) cities: geographic transferability of pharmacoeconomic data.

The economic evaluation of a new medicine often must be based on data gathered in multiple countries. Because replication of trials is an expensive and inefficient undertaking, analysts need to determine the validity of transferring cost-effectiveness data from one country to another. Threats to transferring data involve differences among countries with regard to demography and epidemiology of disease, clinical practice and conventions, incentives to and regulation of healthcare providers, relative price levels, consumer preferences, and opportunity cost of resources. Because of these differences, a drug can be cost-effective in one country and not cost-effective in another. Adapting a cost-effectiveness study conducted in one country to another country requires careful scrutiny of the relevance of comparators, practice patterns, and relative price weights.  (+info)

(7/1189) Does competition by health maintenance organizations affect the adoption of cost-containment measures by fee-for-service plans?

How groups insured by fee-for-service health plans react to increased competition from health maintenance organizations (HMOs) is an unresolved question. We investigated whether groups insured by indemnity plans respond to HMO market competition by changing selected health insurance features, such as deductible amounts, stop loss levels, and coinsurance rates, or by adopting utilization management or preferred provider organization (PPO) benefit options. We collected benefit design data for the years 1985 through 1992 from 95 insured groups in 62 US metropolitan statistical areas. Multivariate hazard analysis showed that groups located in markets with higher rates of change in HMO enrollment were less likely to increase deductibles or stop loss levels. Groups located in markets with higher HMO enrollment were more likely to adopt utilization management or PPO benefit options. A group located in a market with an HMO penetration rate of 20% was 65% more likely to have included a PPO option as part of its insurance benefit plan than a group located in a market with an HMO penetration rate of 15% (p < 0.05). Concern about possible adverse selection effects may deter some fee-for-service groups from changing their health insurance coverage. Under some conditions, however, groups insured under fee-for-service plans do respond to managed care competition by changing their insurance benefits to achieve greater cost containment.  (+info)

(8/1189) Clinical practice guidelines in end-stage renal disease: a strategy for implementation.

Clinical practice guidelines (CPGs) for end-stage renal failure (ESRD) were recently published, and represent a comprehensive review of available literature and the considered judgment of experts in ESRD. To prioritize and implement these guidelines, the evidence underlying each guideline should be ranked and the attributes of each should be defined. Strategies to improve practice patterns should be tested. Focused information for each high priority guideline should be disseminated, including a synopsis and assessment of the underlying evidence, the evidence model used to develop that guideline, and suggested strategies for CPG implementation. Clinical performance measures should be developed and used to measure current practice, and the success of changing practice patterns on clinical outcomes. Individual practitioners and dialysis facilities should be encouraged to utilize continuous quality improvement techniques to put the guidelines into effect. Local implementation should proceed at the same time as a national project to convert high priority CPGs into clinical performance measures proceeds. Patients and patient care organizations should participate in this process, and professional organizations must make a strong commitment to educate clinicians in the methodology of CPG and performance measure development and the techniques of continuous quality improvement. Health care regulators should understand that CPGs are not standards, but are statements that assist practitioners and patients in making decisions.  (+info)


What is the difference between innovation ceramic braces and the traditional metal ones?


Im getting braces soon and have to decide between innovation ceramic braces or the traditional metal ones. Other than the cosmetic factor, what are the pros and cons of both?
----------

I have ceramic ones on my first 6 front teeth.  Cosmetically is the biggest difference.  Also the ceramic brackets are a little bit bigger than the metal ones.  They also cost a little bit more but not too much.


What are some diseases that can be treated with diffusion?


Or what are some diseases that are caused by diffusion? Please be very specific and please put in simple terms of what happens, don't just put the disease down.  
Thanks!
----------

Hi Lizzy - I do not know of any diseases that can be treated with diffusion however I know that small creatures do not have respiratory systems. They receive their oxygen by diffusion, They cannot become too large. If they do then they die because the metabolic need for oxygen cannot be met by simple diffusion.

If the human body is infused with clean sterile water by IV administration the red cells die because too much water enters them by diffusion. This is called hemolysis - red cell breakdown.

I hope I have helped, please let me know.


what is diffusion in homeostasis and why does it happen?


hello, i need help with this i have handed this in four times and still not passed i need to know what diffusion is and why does it happen in some detail please.
Thanks.
----------

diffusion is the transfer of particles across a permeable membrane.  The process occurs when there is concentrations gradient, and can occur even when there is an equal amt of particles on each side of the permeable membrane. There is a lot to say about the subject, and many sources available out there, this is just a brief overview


What is the speed of diffusion and why does it go as fast as it does?


What is the speed of diffusion and why does it go as fast as it does?
Its one of my science questions. I looked all over the web and i can't find it. And its talking about diffusion in the human body.

im only asking this question because no on e in the science section would answer
----------

what grade is this for?
and why are you asking it in the fashion section?

the math is a bit beyond me,
but i think this might help

http://www.timedomaincvd.com/CVD_Fundamentals/xprt/intro_diffusion.html

also you need experimental data to complete the question. you got to know what`s being absorbed into what, not all things diffuse at the same rate. you might want to research fick`s laws etc.


What is the effect of a decrease in the partial pressure gradient on the diffusion rate of a gas?


In other words, will the diffusion rate of gas increase or decrease?
----------

Think of the gradient like a hill. It's not the height of the hill, it's the slope. The bigger the difference in pressure, the faster it will diffuse at first. The rate will slow down as the pressures equilibrate. So if thetwo sides are at 10 atm vs 2 atm, it will go faster at first than 3 atm and 2.8 atm if I remember correctly, and I think I do.


where in the lungs does diffusion take place, and what gasses are diffused?


i need this questions to be answered please help.
1. Where in the lungs does diffusion take place, and what gasses are diffused?
2. What are cilia and what are their functions?
3. What makes the walls of the trachea rigid?
4. Explain in detail and in your own words the neural factors that control breathing.
5.Explain in detail and in your own words how chemical factors control breathing
6. Explain the difference between tidal volume and vital capacity.
----------

Esteban, these are basic questions that are obviously part of a homework assignment.  How can you expect to learn anything if you don't look these things up yourself?
1. Oxygen and Carbon Dioxide and it takes place in the alveoli.
2.Cilia are hairlike structures found in the trachea and bronchi that move in unison in a wavelike manner to expel mucous and anything trapped therein.
3. C shaped cartilaginous rings. The posterior side is flexible so food can pass through the esophagus.
6.Tidal Volume is the amount of air you move in and out of your lungs on any given breath. Vital Capacity is the amount you can exhale after a maximal inhalation.
I will not do 4 & 5 for you. Look them up yourself. You need to learn this stuff.


What do you think is the most creative innovation for business?


It is referring to any new invention which is related to medicine and health. For example,  the portable ab-shaper (an exercise tool used to do sit-ups). But this invention should be extremely new!
----------

i think something that reminds/forces people to work out, any work out, walking, weights, anything.

they would set the parameters that they want, and if they dont meet them, they would get an electric shock


What important role does diffusion play in connection with the respiratory and circulatory systems?


Diffusion is simply the equalizing of gas pressures from the higher concentration to the lower. Oxygen diffuses out of the alveoli into the pulmonary capillary bed because the Oxygen in the alveoli has a higher pressure than the blood. CO2 diffused into the alveoli because the pressure is greater in the blood than in the alveoli.
That takes place through the alveolar-capillary membrane.
