  1. Physical Exam of Respiratory
    System
    • Review Table 26-10 page 526
    • Describe exam findings associated with the following disorders:
    • COPD
    • Pneumonia=Percussion
    • Dull over gunk/Frem Inc
    • Atelectasis
    • Pulmonary Edema
    • Pleural Effusion
    • Pneumothorax

    Fremitus more vibration than air

    Pneumoth/Absent breath sounds/Percuss=hyperressonant-trap air but no mvmt

    Connect Patho
  2. Pulmonary Function Test (PFTs)
    Evaluates function of airways, diffusion, lung compliance.

    • Values calculated on percent of predicted by age-lose volume,
    • height-taller more volume, gender

    • Decreased Forced Expiratory Volume in 1 second (FEV-1)
    • indicative of obstructive lung disease (Asthma or COPD)

    • Decreased Vital Capacity indicates restrictive lung disease
    • (Pulmonary fibrosis or neuromuscular disorders)


    Obstr-dead space in lungs/trapping/narrowing/ability to blow out hard quick diminished

    Restr-Low volumes
