  8. 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)
  9. 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).
  10. 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.
  11. 80%-90%; partial pressure of oxygen that is dissolved in arterial blood.
    New Born - Acceptable range 40-70 mm Hg. Elderly: Subtract 1 mm Hg from the minimal 80 mm Hg level for every year over 60 years of age: 80 - (age- 60) (Note: up to age 90)
  12. Used to remove fluid from the chest cavity. Pt in sitting position resting over bedside table.
  13. partial or complete collapse of a lung as a result of accumulation of Air in the interpleural space; mediastinal shift
  14. > 95%; The arterial oxygen saturation.
  15. Highly contagious infection caused by Mycobaterium TB. Transmitted by Droplet and use Airborne Precautions.
  16. progressive disease that makes it hard to breathe; Chronic bronchitis-Inflammation of Bronchi(lung infection),
    Emphysema-overdistention of the airspaces of the lungs,
    Asthma
  17. Bronchodilator First, than Corticosteroids second.
  18. Respiratory Opposite; Metabolic Equal
  19. 35-45 mEq/L; measures the amount of carbon dioxide in the liquid part of your blood, called the serum.
  20. pH down, CO2 up, and HCO3 up;
  21. pH up, CO2 up, and HCO3 up
  22. the measure of the concentration of white blood cells, red blood cells, and platelets in the blood.
  23. 24-26 mEq/L; Calculated value of the amount of bicarbonate in the bloodstream
  24. Prevents bronchospasms caused by acetylcholine; EX: ipratropium bromide/atropine
  25. EX: Isoniazid/Rifampin/Ethambutol; Side Effects-Turns urine, saliva, sweat, sputum orange in color.

  27. Severe form of Pneumonia — lung inflammation usually caused by infection. Legionnaires' disease is caused by a bacterium known as legionella. Bacterial growth stored in water.
  28. inadequate gas exchange due to damage to lungs
  29. life-threatening lung condition that prevents enough oxygen from getting into the blood.
  30. TB is suspected
  31. Relax smooth muscle and increase respiration; EX: epinephrine/albuterol
  32. 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.
  33. 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)
