    inflammation,
    narrowed airways,
    increased mucous secretions,
    mucous plugs,
    asthma
  4. poor aeration, poor expansion, collapse of portions of the lung
    atelectasis
  5. (blue bloater) inflammation of bronchial mucosa that can be acute or chronic. classified as COPD.

    cough w/ mucous production most days, for 3 months or longer, for 2 successive years

  6. emphysema, bronchitis, asthma, bronchiectasis, cf, and bronchopulm dysplasia.
    copd
  7. chronic inflammation and bulbous enlargement of the fingers and toes.

    common w/ chronic hypoxemia, chronic bronchitis, emphysema, pulm infections and congenital heart defects.
    clubbing, digital clubbing, or hypertropic pulm osteroroarthropathy
  8. hypertrophy and thickening of the right heart ventricle.

    cause by pulm htn.
    cor pulmonale
  9. hereditary disease of the autonomic nervous system that causes exocrine glands to produce excess abnormal secretions, resulting in tissue and organ damage, esp in lung tissue and organ damage
    cf
  10. (pink buffer) dilation, enlargement, and destruction of air spaces beyond terminal bronchioles. aka COPD.

    3 pathologic types: centrilobar, panlobular, and bullous
    emphysema
  11. presence of purulent fluid in the pleural space. similar to pleural effusion
