5 True/False questions

  1. coughprotective reflex that cleanses the lower air-ways explosive expiration


  2. bronchiectasisabnormal dilation of the bronchi often associated with obstruction and plugs, loss of elasticity


  3. hypercapniaincreased amount of CO2 in the blood: depression of respiratory center by drugs; diseases of the medulla;


  4. kussmaulrespiration (hyperpnea)inadequate gas exchange where either oxygen is too low or carbon dioxide is too high


  5. cheyne-stokes respirationsinadequate alveolar ventilation inelation to metabolic demands; CO2 removal does not keep up with production and level increases in arterial blood causing hypercapnia
