  1. a Diagnostic radiology procedure used to examine the chest and the organs and structures located in the chest; used to assess the lungs, as well as the heart (either directly or indirectly) by looking at the heart itself.
  2. b 7.35- 7.45; a measurement of acidity or alkalinity
  3. c Inflammation of the lungs caused by infection. Bacteria, viruses, fungi or parasites can cause pneumonia.
  4. d a blockage of an artery in the lungs by fat, air, a blood clot, or tumor cells; Fat Emboli,Air Emboli
  5. e life-threatening lung condition that prevents enough oxygen from getting into the blood.
  6. f a group of tests that measure how well the lungs take in and release air and how well they move gases such as oxygen from the atmosphere into the body's circulation;(ex: Spirometry)
  7. g 35-45 mEq/L; measures the amount of carbon dioxide in the liquid part of your blood, called the serum.
  8. h pH up, CO2 up, and HCO3 up
  9. i To view airways and diagnose the lung disease; a device used to see the inside of the lungs. It can be flexible or rigid. Usually, a flexible bronchoscope is used. The flexible bronchoscope is a tube less than 1/2 inch wide and about 2 feet long. NPO for 8-12 hours before test;NPO after test until Gag Reflex return.

  11. k Relax smooth muscle and increase respiration; EX: epinephrine/albuterol
  12. l partial or complete collapse of a lung as a result of accumulation of Blood in the interpleural space.
  13. m analysis provides information on the following:
    1] Oxygenation of blood through gas exchange in the lungs. 2] Carbon dioxide (CO2) elimination through respiration. 3] Acid-base balance or imbalance in extra-cellular fluid (ECF).
  14. n Used to remove fluid from the chest cavity. Pt in sitting position resting over bedside table.
  15. o pH down, CO2 down, and HCO3 down
  16. p Prevents bronchospasms caused by acetylcholine; EX: ipratropium bromide/atropine
  17. q pH up, CO2 down, and HCO3 down
  18. r Respiratory Opposite; Metabolic Equal
  19. s 80%-90%; partial pressure of oxygen that is dissolved in arterial blood.

  20. t nuclear scanning test used to detect a blood clot that is preventing normal blood flow to part of a lung (pulmonary embolism);(Ex: Ventilation Scan/Perfusion Scan)
  21. u Inflammation of the lining of the lungs and chest (the pleura) that leads to chest pain (usually sharp) when you take a breath or cough. Also called pleuritis.
