Premature infants may develop respiratory distress and can land up in respiratory failure sometimes needing an intensive care for such infants. This may be due to:

1. the sudden change from the uterine environment to the air

2. the incomplete development of the lung surface

3. inadequate production of surfactant

4. mutations in the genes involved in lung formation

Difficulty Level:


Oxygen is mainly transported as oxyhaemoglobin in the blood. Identify the correct statement regarding oxygen transport in blood:

1. During normal activity, a molecule of hemoglobin returning to the lungs carries one molecule of O2

2. During conditions of acidosis, hemoglobin is able to carry oxygen more efficiently.

3. Increased BPG levels in the red blood cells enhance oxygen-carrying capacity.

4. A 50% oxygen saturation level of blood returning to the lungs might indicate an activity level higher than normal.
