Lungs will bronchodilate- to better understand the concept : the autonomic nervous system is composed of sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system. it is called autonomic because it is involuntary and stimuli based. you cannot tell your heart to kindly beat for 60 per minute, nor, tell your blood vessels, please constrict, because you need to wear skirt today and your varicosities are bulging. sympathetic nervous system is the fight or flight mechanism. when people fight or run, we tend to stimulate the ans and dominate over sns. just imagine a person fighting and running to get the idea on the signs of sns domination. imagine a resting and digesting person to get a picture of pns domination. a person running or fighting needs to bronchodilate, because the oxygen need is increased due to higher demand of the body. pupils will dilate to be able to see the enemy clearly. client will be fully alert to dodge attacks and leap through obstacles during running. the clients gastric motility will decrease because you cannot afford to urinate or defecate during fighting nor running.
