  21. Healthcare-associated or _______ Pneumonia is an infection occurring _______
    • Nosocomial
    • 48–72 hours after admission to a healthcare facility
  22. Nursing Home–acquired Pneumonia Occurs due to
    dysphagia (difficulty swallowing) from decrease in saliva and/or a decreased cough reflex
  23. Ventilator-associated pneumonia are caused by
    mechanically ventilated patients with no ability to clear oral secretions by swallowing or coughing
  24. Nonventilator-associated pneumonia is when
    biofilm forms on endotracheal tubes, catheters
  25. What two tests are available to determine exposure to M. tuberculosis
    Tuberculin Skin Test (TST) (Also known as the Mantoux test or purified protein derivative (PPD) test

  26. When ______ are seen on a stained smear of sputum, or other clinical specimen, a diagnosis of TB disease is suspected. However, the diagnosis is not confirmed until a ________
    acid-fast bacilli (AFB)

    laboratory culture is grown and identified as M. tuberculosis
  27. Multidrug-resistant TB (MDR-TB) is TB bacterial resistance to at least
    two of the first-line (most preferred) drugs, isoniazid and rifampin
  28. Extensively drug-resistant TB (XDR-TB) isTB bacterial resistance to _______ and ________
    isoniazid rifampin, fluoroquinolone, and at least one of three injectable second-line drug
  29. Oral Manifestations of TB
    painful, deep, irregular ulcer on dorsum of the tongue
  30. Five types of Asthma
    • 1.Extrinsic (aka allergic or atopic) Allergic Triggers from Outside the Body
    • 2.Intrinsic (aka non-allergic or idiosyncratic)
    • 3.Drug-or-food-induced (Non-Allergenic, Non-Atopic)
    • 4.Exercise-induced
    • 5.Infection-induced
  31. Most common type of Asthma
    Extrinsic (aka allergic or atopic)
  32. A severe asthmatic attack that does not respond to treatment is referred to as
    status asthmaticus
  33. Drugs that cause Asthma- attack triggers
    • Aspirin-containing drugs (use acetaminophen).
    • Sulfite-containing local anesthetics solution, such as epinephrine.
    • Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs).

    • Chronic bronchitis
    • Emphysema
  35. ________ has been identified as the major risk factor in COPD.
    Cigarette smoking
  36. Signs and Symptoms of Chronic Bronchitis
    • Chronic Bronchitis
    • Chronic cough.
    • Copious sputum.
    • Chest radiograph abnormalities.
    • Sedentary, overweight, cyanotic, edematous & breathless, leading to the term “blue bloaters”.
  37. Describe Chronic Bronchitis
    Excessive respiratory tract mucus production sufficient to cause a cough with expectoration (coughing up mucus) for at least 3 months of the year for 2 or more years
  38. In Chronic bronchitis Obstruction is caused by ________ and there is difficulty breathing on ________

  41. Signs and Symptoms of Emphysema
    • Difficulty in breathing upon exertion.
    • Minimal, nonproductive cough (dry, no mucus).
    • Barrel chest (enlarged chest walls) due to increased use of respiratory chest muscles.
    • Weight loss.
    • Chest radiograph abnormalities.
    • Purses lips to forcibly expel air, leading to the term “pink puffers”.
