24.  What condition does the factors listed below cause:Premature birth; immature lungs; Increased inspired oxygen; (+) pressure ventilation; and infections
25.  High V/Q ratio = _______ problem
26.  Loss of elastic recoil and expiration speed leads to not enough elasticity to push air up and out which leads to increased air in lungs, decreased mucus production and alveoli cannot push air out describe the pathology of       
27.  Pancreas; respiratory tract; sweat and salivary glands; intestines; and liver are structures affected by     .
