Introduction:

In the given case, a 68-year-old patient has heart failure and pulmonary edema. The pulmonary edema resulted in swelling of the capillaries, which resulted in decreasing the oxygen diffusion rate. This rate is affected by the thickness of the membrane and is indirectly related with the rate of diffusion, according to Fick’s law.

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

Explanation

The doctor improved the arterial pressure of oxygen. This goal is achieved by the doctor by increasing the pressure at the level of patient’s alveoli. This means the pressure of oxygen in the alveolar space is increased. This pressure is directly related to rate. Therefore, an increase in this pressure results in an increased rate of diffusion...
