TAQ 2 b

Post by harri »

Can anyone confirm that TAQ 2 b is asking for an explanation of pulmonary gas exchange only (exchange from air in the lungs to the pulmonary capillaries) and not systemic gas exchange (exchange between capillaries and tissues). I don't see how we can cover both in 150 words.

Did you get an answer for this? The question does say 'focus on passage of gases across the walls of the alveoli'.......... so am guessing it's between the alveoli and the pulmonary capillaries ??

definitely focus on the pulmonary gas exchange, the systemic isnt necessary for this criteria

I hope this helps
