Case 1

Describe how the following conditions are manifested in the clinical setting:

Decreased pulmonary diffusion: _______

Decreased lung compliance: ___________

Expert Solution
Summary Introduction

To review:

The way through which decreased pulmonary diffusion and decreased lung compliance are manifested in the clinical setting.

Introduction:

The diffusion capacity is also known as the transfer factor. It can be defined as the measure of the transfer of gas in the lung to the red blood cells. It is one of the pulmonary function tests. Pulmonary compliance is a measure of the ability of the lung to stretch. In other terms, it can be defined as the distensibility of elastic tissue.

Please refer to Clinical Application Case-1 for further information.

Explanation of Solution

A decrease in pulmonary diffusion and lung compliance indicates a stiff lung. It means that extra efforts are required to bring a normal volume of air in the lung. In such a case, the lungs become fibrotic. The lungs lose their distensibility. A decrease in pulmonary diffusion and lung compliance would manifest a similar condition...
