  13. Orthopenia
    Upright to be comfortable
  14. PND
    Paroxysmal nocturnal dyspnea- wake up gasping for air at night
  15. Sudden onset of SOB. Hemodynamic instability. Mediastinal shift or tracheal deviation. Tympanic percussion. Quite breath sounds.

  20. What does chest x-ray look like for the following (lung cancer, COPD, Pneumothorax, PE)
    lung cancer subtle changes; COPD- darker than normal for increased air in lung; Pneumothorax- tracheal shift; PE- normal
  21. Resonance percussion of lungs
    Normal
  22. Tympanic Percussion
    Pneumothorax
  23. Dull percussion
