Case Objectives

Objectives - Case 6 - Miller and Conrad

Foundational Knowledge Objectives

  1. List the principal pathophysiologic processes that lead to restrictive lung physiology: neuromuscular disease, interstitial disease, skeletal anomalies, and pleural filling.
  2. Define the effects of neuromuscular weakness on airflow, gas exchange, and cardiovascular physiology
  3. Differentiate the physiologic consequences of neuromuscular disease from those associated with interstitial lung disease, skeletal anomalies, and pleural space filling.
  4. Distinguish among inflammatory interstitial lung disease by etiology, pathology, treatment options, and prognosis.
  5. List common physical examination findings in restrictive lung disease and differentiate by etiology.
