31

pertaining to bronchial tubes & alveoli with special reference to sounds intermediate between bronchial or tracheal sounds & vesicular sounds

Bronchovesicular

32

a blue, gray, slate or dark purple discoloration of the skin or mucous membranes caused by deoxygenated or reduced hemoglobin in the blood

Cyanosis

33

a catheter inserted into the trachea to provide or protect an airway

Endotracheal Tube

34

the act or process of spitting out saliva or coughing up materials from the air passageways leading to the lungs...the expulsion of mucus or phlegm from the throat or lungs

Expectorate

35

expulsion of air from the lungs in breathing...exhaling

Expiration

36

inhalation...drawing air into the lungs

Inspiration

37

device used to encourage voluntary deep breathing by providing visual feedback to patients of the inspiratory volume they have acheived

Incentive Spirometer

38

device designed to deliver a measured dose of an inhaltion drug

Metered-Dose Inhaler (MDI)

39

device used to deliver supplemental oxygen or airflow to a patient in need of respiratory help

Nasal Cannula

40

a device used in medical emergencies in which a patient need oxygen therapy but can breath unassisted...allows for higher dose oxygen than a nasal cannula

Non Rebreather Mask

41

condition in which excess fluid builds up in the fluid-filled cavity surrounding the lungs

Pleural Effusion

42

a photosensor with two light-emitting diodes (LEDs) of differing wavelengths that measure the combined absorption of oxygenated and deoxygenated hemoglobin (indirect measurement of O2 saturation)

Pulse Oximeter

43

mucus coughed up from the lower airways

Sputum

44

abnormally rapid rate of breathing

Tachypnea

45

volume representing the normal amount of air displaced between inhalation & exhalation when extra effort is not applied

Tidal Volume

46

procedure of entering the pleural cavity & aspirating fluid (usually performed at bedside)

Thoracentisis

47

an artificial opening made in the neck to provide an airway

Tracheostomy

48

normal, soft, low-pitched breath sounds with a rustling quality during inspiration, softer during expiration

Vesicular Breath Sounds

49

the movement of blood into & out of the lungs to the organs & tissues of the body (supported by the heart)

Perfusion

50

The Normal Electrical Pathway of the Heart

SA node--->across the atria--->AV node--->Bundle of His--->Purkinje fibers--->ventricles

51

resistance of the ejection of blood from the left ventricle

Afterload

52

amount of blood at end of ventricular diastole or measured as end-diastolic pressure

Preload
