Case 1

As a result of the previously describedcondition, the patient's right lung__________,

which in turn caused an acute (decreased______; increased_____) lungcompliance condition.

Summary Introduction

To review:

The blank space in the statement, “As a result of previously described condition, the patient’s right lung _______, which in turn caused an acute (decreased_____; increased ______) lung compliance condition.”

Introduction:

Lung compliance is defined as “the change in lung volume per unit pressure change.” It can be defined as the elastic force of lungs that allows the movement of air into the lungs with the help of chest wall, bones, and surrounding muscles.

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

Explanation

The situation in which the relationship between the lung and chest wall gets disturbed by any trauma or injury, it disturbs the elastic property, which does not work against each other. The elastic forces can be measured by lung compliance. It measures the elasticity of the lung. The broken ribs on the right side cause the lung to collapse partially, causing the flail chest condition and alveolar atelectasis...
