Expert Solution
Summary Introduction

To review:

The given blank spaces in the statement, “After aggressive bronchial hygiene therapy and lung expansion therapy, the patient’s FEV1 (increased______; decreased_______; remained the same_______), and the RV (increased_______; decreased________; remained the same).”

Introduction:

Bronchial hygiene is a term used for describing various types of airway cleaning techniques, such as breathing exercises, chest physiotherapy, and manual hyperventilation. Lung expansion therapy includes different types of respiratory care methods, which increase the lung volume.

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

Explanation of Solution

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. Lung expansion therapy and aggressive bronchial hygiene therapy reversed the respiratory problems of the patient.

FEV1 (forced expiratory volume) can be defined as the amount of air exhaled in 1 second...
