Auscultation of breath sounds
Chest tube placement
Auscultate breath sounds
Have the client use an incentive spirometer
Take a chest x-ray
Stick a needle in the area of decreased breath sounds
Amount of carbon dioxide in the blood
Amount of oxygen in the blood
Percentage of hemoglobin carrying oxygen
More hemoglobin reduces the client’s respiratory rate
Low hemoglobin levels cause reduces oxygen-carrying capacity
Low hemoglobin levels cause increased oxygen-carrying capacity.
Alveoli need oxygen to live
Alveoli have no effect on oxygenation
Collapsed alveoli increase oxygen demand
Gaseous exchange occurs in the alveolar membrane.
The mask provides 100% oxygen to the client.
The mask provides continuous air that the client can breathe.
The mask provides pressurized oxygen so the client can breathe more easily.
The mask provides pressurized at the end of expiration to open collapsed alveoli.
The collapse of alveoli
The collapse of bronchiole
The fluid in the alveolar space
The accumulation of fluid between the linings of the pleural space.
Inserting a chest tube
Allowing the pleural effusion to drain by itself.
