Flashcards in Chapter 9 - A Breath of Fresh Air Deck (65):
Collection of fluid or mucus from the bronchi and/or alveoli via an endoscope or through an endotracheal tube inserted as far down the trachea caudally as possible before infusing fluid and aspirating a sample (fluid may be used for cytologic examination).
Visual examination of the bronchus.
Visual examination of the voice box.
Diagnostic procedure used to determine density in which sound is produced by tapping various body surfaces with the finger or an instrument. The sound produced over the chest where air is present differs from that of an area where fluid is present.
Thick mucus secreted by the respiratory lining.
Instrument used to measure air taken in and out of the lungs.
Puncture of the chest wall with a needle to obtain fluid from the pleural cavity.
Collection of fluid or mucus from the trachea via an endotracheal tube to assess respiratory disease.
Sterile collection of fluid or mucus from the trachea via a catheter inserted through the skin into the trachea to assess respiratory disease.
Transtracheal wash (abbrev. TTW)
Insertion of a hole-boring instrument into a sinus to establish fluid drainage or to allow access to the roots of teeth.
Absence of oxygen
Interruption of breathing resulting in lack of oxygen
Asphyxiation, also called suffocation
Inhalation of a foreign substance into the upper respiratory tract
Chronic allergic disorder
Incomplete expansion of the alveoli; also may mean collapse of a lung
Inflammation of the bronchi
Abnormal condition of the bronchi and lung
General term for abnormal conditions in equine species in which expiratory flow is slowed
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease
abbrev. COPD, also called heaves
Abnormal condition of blue discoloration
Abnormal opening in the diaphragm that allows part of the abdominal organs to migrate into the chest cavity
Chronic lung disease caused by enlargement of the alveoli or changes in the alveolar wall.
Disorder of horses that is characterized by abnormal inspiratory noise during exercise associated with degeneration of the left recurrent laryngeal nerve and atrophy of the laryngeal muslces
Equine laryngeal hemiplegia
also called left laryngeal hemiplegia or roaring
Spitting of blood from the lower respiratory tract
Accumulation of blood in the chest cavity
Localized protective response to destroy, dilute, or wall of injury; classic signs are heat, redness, swelling, pain, and loss of function.
Inflammation of the voice box
Paralysis of the voice box
Sudden fluttering or closure of the voice box
Inflammation of the throat
Act of producing sound
Inability to produce sound
Abnormal accumulation of fluid in the pleural space
Abnormal condition of the pleura and the lung (usually involves inflammation and congestion)
Abnormal condition of the lung that usually involves inflammation and congestion of the lung
Abnormal lung condition with increased fluid between the alveoli and a decrease in lung function
Abnormal accumulation of air or gas in the chest cavity
Growth or mass protruding from a mucous membrane (usually benign)
Accumulation of fluid in the lung tissue
Abnormally large amounts of fluid in the intercellular tissues spaces
Abnormal formation of fibers in the alveolar walls
Accumulation of pus in the chest cavity
Fluid product of inflammation composed of leukocytes
Inflammation of the nasal mucous membranes
Inflammation of the nasal mucous membranes and lungs
Inflammation of the sinus
Common term for upper respiratory disease of rabbits caused by Pasteurella multocida
Narrowed nostrils that reduce airway flow
Inflammation of the windpipe
Inflammation of the trachea and the bronchi
Invasion of the nose, mouth, pharynx, epiglottis, or larynx (or trachea) by pathogenic organisms.
Upper respiratory infection or URI
A sudden, noisy expulsion of air from the lungs
Spasmlike and sudden
Combining form for cough
Substances that narrow the opening into the lungs
Substances that expand the openings into the lungs
Substances used to break down mucus
Substances used to control or prevent coughing
Surgical removal of a lobe
Surgical incision into the chest wall
Surgical creation of an opening into the windpipe (usually involves insertion and placement of a tube)
Surgical incision into the windpipe
