  2. dyspnea
  3. small cell carcinoma
  4. Kussmaul respiration
  5. acute respiratory distress syndrome
  1. a most aggressive type of lung cancer; early and widespread metastasis; usually centrally located
  2. b difficult or labored respiration. Subjective sensation of uncomfortable breathing, or of being unable to get enough air. It is a common symptom of respiratory disease
  3. c the passage of fluid and solid particles into the lung. It tends to occur in individuals whose normal swallowing mechanism and cough reflex are impaired by a decreased level of consciousness or CNS abnormalities.
  4. d respiratory insufficiency marked by progressive hypoxia. this syndrome is due to severe inflammatory damage causing abnormal permeability of the alveolar-capillary membrane; also called adult respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS)
  5. e (hyperpnea) deep, gasping associated w/ diabetic ketoacidosis

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. group of lung cancers that includes squamos cell carcinoma
  2. vius invades cells, replicate, kill cells sendinng out debris causing obstruction. smaller airway puts child at risk. S/S include sudden onset, fever, cough, crackles, wheeze, chills. Usually mild and self-limiting, but it can set the stage for a secondary bacterial infection by providing an ideal environment for bacterial growth.

  4. an infection caused by mycobacterium tuberculosis, an acid-fast bacillus that usually affects the lungs by may also invade other body systems, bacterial infection of lungs, spread by airborne droplets, active infection may not occur for years, s/s tiredness, loss of appetite, weight loss, fever, night sweats, cough and sputum production increase over time
  5. diaphragm can't move down, caused by problem with ventilation. congential or other deformity. Trauma, neuromuscular disease, decreases tidal volume

  2. hypocapniathe presence of an abnormally high level of carbon dioxide in the circulating blood

          

  3. manifestations of ARDSrapid, shallow breathing, respiratory alkalosis, dyspnea, decreased lung compliance (flexibility), unresponsive hypoxemia.

          

  4. coughingdeep breath followed by forceful exhalation from mouth, sudden expulsion of air from the lungs that clears the air passages

          

  5. tension pneumothoraxDirect communication between external environment and pleural space such as with gun shot or knife, OCCURES WHEN A PENETRATING CHEST WOUND ALOWS OUTSIDE AIR TO PENETRATE THE PLURAL SPACE CAUSING THE LUNG TO COLLAPSE
