Case Objectives

Objectives - Case 1 - Daimler

  1. List common diagnostic tests that provide the physiology, structure, and function of the lungs
    • Expiratory spirometry
    • Lung volumes
    • Diffusion capacity
    • Lung compliance
    • Arterial blood gas analysis and alveolar gas equation
    • Oxygen binding and transport
    • CT scan
    • CXR
    • List the atomic lung volumes, and common capacities
  2. Describe the measurement of pulmonary diffusing capacity
  3. List the subcellular structures traversed by a molecule of oxygen from the alveolar space to within a RBC, bound to hemoglobin
  4. Have strong working knowledge of the alveolar gas equation
  5. Use the oxyhemoglobin dissociation curve to relate oxygen tension to oxygen saturation, and list the factors that alter the shape of that curve
  6. Describe essential elements for ethical human research to be conducted.
  7. Describe the relationship between lung volume and airflow and explain the mechanisms that limit airflow during forced expiration.
