Respiratory Quizzes & Trivia

This quiz is all about the respiratory known as pulmonary edema – which is defined as a fluid accumulation in the tissue and air spaces of the lungs. What do you know about the causes and effects of this disorder?


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 
    • Climbers and people who live in or travel to high altitude locations run the risk of developing this type of pulmonary edema:
    • A. 

      A. Lung infection

    • B. 

      B. Smoke inhalation

    • C. 

      C. ARDS

    • D. 

      D. High altitude

  • 2. 
    • If pulmonary edema continues, it can raise pressure in the pulmonary artery and right ventricle begins to fail, the increased pressure backs up into the right atrium causing build up of fluid in the membranes that surround the lungs.
    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

  • 3. 
    • Hydrostatic pressure in the capillaries that leads to pulmonary edema becomes:
    • A. 

      A. high which leads to shift of fluid from veins to arteries

    • B. 

      B. high which leads to shift of fluid from arteries to alveoli

    • C. 

      C. high which leads to shift of fluid from capillaries into the alveoli

  • 4. 
    • The following are primary conditions that result to pulmonary edema except:
    • A. 

      A. Congestive heart failure

    • B. 

      B. Hyperkalemia

    • C. 

      C. Blockage of lymphatic drainaige due to tumors

    • D. 

      D. Pnemonia due to gas inhalation

  • 5. 
    • Excess fluid in the alveolar tissue may develop when plasma proteins are high increasing plasma osmotic pressure:
    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

  • 6. 
    • Abnormal build up of fluid in the air sacs of the lungs which leads to shortness of breath, respiratory failure and even death:
    • A. 

      A. Hepatitis

    • B. 

      B. Diabetes

    • C. 

      C. Pulmonary edema

    • D. 

      D. Hemothorax

  • 7. 
    • The following are non- cardiogenic causes of Pulmonary edema except:
    • A. 

      A. Reperfusion injury

    • B. 

      B. Congestive heart failure

    • C. 

      C. Inhalation of toxic gases

    • D. 

      D. Hypoproteinemia
