  56. bd An excess of fluid in the pleural space.
  57. be This is d/t: Anxiety, asthma. Lots of resps blow off CO2 faster than the body can make CO2. A decrease in CO2 causes the blood to be less acidic and more alkalinic, thus the 'alkalosis' is caused by respirations.

  59. bg There is hole from the outside of the body which goes to the inside of the body, into the intrapleural space.
  60. bh Increases mucous production, impairs airway clearance, causes irreversible narrowing of the small airways. CO2 is retained.
  61. bi This is due to alveolar hypoventilation.
  62. bj Vena cava filter insertion, anti-coagulants, morphine, diuretics, fibrinolytics. Stockings.
