Introduction:

In respiratory disorders, the lung capacities and volumes are abnormally altered. Pulmonary function tests are carried out to determine whether the disorder is restrictive or obstructive, the severity of the disease, and to monitor the progress of the disorder.

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

Explanation

In the given case, obstructive as well as restrictive lung disorder is illustrated. This is because a large amount of bronchial secretion was produced by inhaling fumes of paint and the consequent streptococcal infection. Mucous pooling and plugging of bronchial airways in the lower left lobe were also observed and these were demonstrated by loud bronchial breath sounds over this region. However, primarily, it was demonstrated that the patient had obstructive lung disorder only, but several studies illustrated that the patient had restrictive lung disorder also. Lung expansion therapy and aggressive bronchial hygiene therapy reversed the respiratory problems of the patient...
