Case 2

3. What two major tracheobronchial tree changes occurred during the asthma attack that caused gas flow to significantly decrease, as described by Poiseuille's law?

Summary Introduction

To review:

The description of the two major tracheobronchial tree changes that occur during an asthma attack that caused gas flow to significantly decrease.

Introduction:

The Hagen–Poiseulli equation explains the dynamic characteristics of lungs with reference to the lung–chest compliance. The pressure and movement of air inside and outside the lungs are important for the body. The changes that occur in the tracheobronchial tree during an asthma attack are described by Poiseulli’s law.

Please refer to Clinical Application Case-2 for further information.

Explanation

The two major tracheobronchial tree changes that occur during an asthma attack that caused a significant decrease in gas flow are explained by Poiseulli’s law. A normal inspiration decreases the pleural pressure and results in an increase in the radius of the bronchial airways, which is called passive dilation. This pressure goes back to its normal resting level during expiration. The bronchial airways decrease in diameter and length, which is also called passive constriction.

The individual having an asthma attack show variations in the pleural pressure and bronchial gas flow. The passive constriction of the tracheobronchial tree occurs during expiration...
