208: Pulmonary Function Testing (N) is organized by Medical Education Systems (MedEdSys), Inc. This Course has been approved for a maximum of 30 CEUs.
• Give five indications for pulmonary function evaluation.
• Identify the major muscles of breathing during inspiration and expiration.
• Distinguish between dead space ventilation and effective ventilation.
• Describe the production and function of surfactant in the lungs.
• Define the following terms:
• Describe the three main components of pulmonary resistance and indicate the overall importance of each of these components in the total resistance.
• Describe the factors affecting dynamic airway compression and indicate the effect of disease states on dynamic airway compression.
• Describe the breathing patterns associated with obstructive and restrictive pulmonary diseases.
• List, define, and give normal values for the lung volumes and capacities in an average adult male.
• Given values for lung volumes and/or lung capacities, calculate other lung volumes and/or capacities.
• Describe the procedures for obtaining a slow vital capacity maneuver and forced vital capacity maneuver.
• Given a tracing of a forced vital capacity maneuver, label the following flow values:
• Describe the appearance of the MVV tracing in the normal, obstructive, and restrictive patient.
• Label the axis and significant points on a flow-volume loop.
• Describe the basic principle involved in measuring the residual volume by each of the following methods:
• Closed circuit method
• Open circuit method
• Plethysmographic method
• Radiologic method
• Indicate the methods for obtaining the residual volume that takes into account “trapped gas.”
• Describe the significance of each of the four phases of the single breath nitrogen test.
• Describe how the anatomy and distribution of gases in the lungs affect the single breath nitrogen test.
• Describe the purpose of measuring the diffusing capacity and indicate factors which can affect it.
• Indicate three means by which predicted values for pulmonary function studies can be generated.
• Name five primary obstructive diseases and five primary restrictive pulmonary diseases.
• Describe the typical pulmonary function findings associated with obstructive pulmonary diseases.
• Describe the typical pulmonary function findings associated with restrictive pulmonary diseases.
