CHAPTER 2.

SCRUTINY OF THE LIVING BEINGS SELF MAKING


I. Updated punctual synthesis of advances in knowledge developed from analysis and interpretation of the respiratory pulse and derived parameters in contrast to traditional beliefs.

II. PERSPECTIVES

PERSPECTIVE ONE: Features defining the new mechanical model of the respiratory apparatus. Lung and heart dynamic integration to achieve the balanced circulation of the air and blood, for gas exchange.

PERSPECTIVE TWO: The living being as a complex system of fluid mechanics. Pulmo-cardiac visceral circulatory system, for air and blood circulation, leading to respiration

PERSPECTIVE THREE: Functional design and structure of the trunk, as an integrated viscero-somatic mechanical unit.

PERSPECTIVE FOUR: Comparative analysis of the lobar and extra-pulmonary air circulation with the cardiac and vessels blood circulation

PERSPECTIVE FIVE: Resemblance and difference between air and blood circulation as integrated balanced processes of fluid mechanics for respiration
