Explain all restrictive lung diseases:
Restrictive: interstitial problem (non-bacterial)
•Small stiff lungs (l VC)
•Trouble breathing in ::::> f EV 1/ FVC
: > 0.8
: J.p02 ::::> f RR, J. pCO:i, ipH
: reticulo-nodular pattern, ground-glass appearance
•Die of cor pulmonale
•Ex: NM <liseascs O)teathing out is passive), drugs, autoin1111w1c dz
: Pressure support on ventilator, to, t U.,
Explain all obstructive lung
: airway problem Q)acterial)
•Big mucus-filled lungs (iRV, jReid index =
iairwar thicknessI airway lumen)
•Trouble breathing out =>FEV J FVC:< 0.8
•rBG:ipC02 => iRR, .J...pH
•Die of bronchiectasis
: Manipulate rate on ventila
tor, tRR, texpira tory time, to2 only if needed
