    clot buster
  72. thoracentesis cause and treat

    • PFT-title volume normal in out breathing about 500cc
  75. co2 retainers
    airways collapse, chest enlarges
  76. with clots
    perfusion can not happen
  77. stinosis
  78. sclerosis
  79. good lungs
    airflow into alveoli and perfusion has to happen
  80. inspiration
    • diaphram expands and lets air in
    • pressure of least resestance
  81. expiration
    elasticity in lungs pushes air out
  82. scar tissue
    is hard and will not expand
  83. pneumothorax open and closed
    • open is from puncture or tramatic event
    • closed internal ruptures air goes into plural space and it clapses
    • will hear no breath sounds over the claps area
  84. pulmonary edema s\s
    dyspia, sob, red foamy sputem
  85. chf is
    backwards heart failure into lungs
  86. test for pe
  87. insentive spirometer teach
    suck in
  88. asthma
    • reactive airway disease
    • constrictive/spasms
  89. dyspnea
    difficult rapid breathing using excessive muscles
  90. bradypnea
    slow breathing
  91. tachypenia
    fast breathing
  92. apneustic
    periods of apnea
  93. apnea
    stop breathing
  94. adventitious breath sounds
    abnormal breath sounds
  95. rhonchi
    wheeze may clear with cough
  96. diff between plural friction rub and pericardial rub
    • low pitch , if you hold breath and it goes away
    • its plural rub
  97. tictile freemitus
    feel vibration when they say 123
  98. crepitus
    in blood gases gangreen
  99. most common diagnosis related group in usa
