The flashcards below were created by user djones2007 on FreezingBlue Flashcards. What would you like to do?


  1. If a patients vital capacity is between 45-65 ml/kg what does that mean?
    Patient is within normal limits :0)
  2. If a patients vital capacity is 30 ml/kg what does that mean?
    CPT

    patient has a poor cough - secretions build
  3. If a patients vital capacity is 25 ml/kg what does that mean?
    I.S

    Patients sigh is compramised, atelectasis begins/ hypoxemia
  4. If a patients vital capacity is between 20-15ml/kg what does that mean?
    IPPB

    Patients sigh is lost, shunting
  5. If a patients vital capacity is 10 ml/kg what does that mean?
    IPPB/BIPAP

    Hypoventilation
  6. If a patients vital capacity is 5 ml/kg what does that mean?
    FULL VENTILATION

    Hypercapnia
  7. What would you suggest if a patients vital capacity is above 15 ml/kg?
    Give I.S
  8. What would you suggest if a patients vital capacity is less than 10 ml/kg ?
    IPPB
  9. What is I.S?
    Low resistance training that empasizes sustained (hold) maximal inspiration

    Its designed to mimic a natural sigh
  10. What are the idications for I.S? (3)
    1. Pulmonary atelectasis

    2. Prevent atelectasis

    3. Patients with restrictive atelectasis
  11. Resisdual volume is the same as ___?
    FRC
  12. What does it mean if a pt has a low FRC?
    They have decreased lung volumes. Most likely a restrictive disease
  13. If a pt is air trapping, would they have a high or low FRC?
    High FRC
  14. What are contraindication for using I.S? (3)
    1. Unconscious pt

    2. Pt cannot comply w/ instructions

    3. VC < 10 cc/Kg or IC <about 1/3 of predicted normal
  15. What are the hazards of using I.S? (5)
    1. Hyperventilation

    2. Discomfort w/ deep inspiration

    3. Barotrauma

    4. Exacerbation of bronchospasm

    5. Fatigue
  16. What are some of the therapeutic outcomes of using I.S? (8)
    • 1. Improved atelectasis
    • 2. Prevention of atelectasis
    • 3. Normal pulse rate
    • 4. Return of normal BS
    • 5. Return of normal X-ray
    • 6. Improved ABGs
    • 7. Increased VC, restored FRC
    • 8. Improved cough
  17. Why is it important to restore a patients FRC? and what can help with this ?
    Because it is important to the work of breathing.

    CPAP and I.S can help with this.
  18. Explain the steps of how I.S should be used?
    • 1. set goal (vc 30-65 ml/kg)
    • 2. RT demonstrates for pt
    • 3. pt returns demonstration
    • 4. moderate to slow inspiration
    • 5. 5-10 sec insp. hold
    • 6. normal exhalation
    • 7. 10-30 sec rest between attempts
    • 8. 5-10 SMI per hour
  19. what does I.S measure?
    measures volume

    flow X time = volume
  20. What is "Spontaneous breathing" ?
    Negative transpulmonary pressure during inspiration secondary to more negative pleural pressure caused by muscle contraction
  21. what is "Positive pressure breathing"?
    Greater than atm pressure applied to the lung resulting in a positive transpulmonary pressure through out inspiration
  22. what are the indications of IPPB? (4)
    1. atelectasis unresponsive to other therapy

    2. high risk patients unable to use IS or PEP

    3. short-term ventilation

    4. to deliver med if VC is less than 10 ml/kg
  23. What are the contraindications of IPPB? (11)
    • 1. tension pneumothorax
    • 2. ICP greater than 15 mmHg
    • 3. hemodynamically unstable
    • 4. active hemoptysis
    • 5. TE fistula
    • 6. recent esophageal surgery
    • 7. active untreated TB
    • 8. blebs on X-ray
    • 9. singulus (hiccups)
    • 10. air swallowing
    • 11. nausea
  24. What are the hazards and complications of IPPB? (8)
    • 1. increased airway resistance
    • 2. pulmonary barotrauma
    • 3. nosocomial infection
    • 4. hyperoxia
    • 5. impaired venous return
    • 6. gastric distension
    • 7. increased air-trapping
    • 8. psychological dependence
  25. What are the therapudic outcomes of using IPPB? (5)
    1. Improved Vt

    2. Improved chest x-ray

    3. Improved breath sounds

    4. Enhanced cough

    5. Improved oxyenation
  26. IPPB is used when pt needs a ____ _____.
    Bigger breath
  27. when administering a IPPB treatment what are the first 5 things that need to be set?
    • 1. eliminate leaks
    • 2. set sensitivity
    • 3. set pressure
    • 4. set flow (for I:E ratio)
    • 5. keep respiratory rate at 6
  28. What is lung expansion therapy help prevent?
    atelectasis ----> pneumonia ----> acute failure
  29. What is "resorption" and what are three things that can commonly cause this ?
    the result of mucus plugging with distal gas absorption

    1. A ineffective cough

    2. Hx of increased mucus production

    3. Smoking history
  30. when the pleural space contains large amount of air this is called a_______.
    pneumothrax.
  31. what can cause a pneumothorax? (2)

    where does this push the lung?

    what will you see on a xray?
    1. rupture of a bleb

    2. complication of positive pressure ventilation (barotrauma)

    3. pushes the lung away from the chest wall

    4. you will see a thin pleural line at the lung margin on a xray
