Flashcards in Pulmonary Terminology Deck (14):
1

Dyspnea

difficult/labored breathing

2

Hypercapnia

excess PaCO2 in blood

3

Hyperoxemia

higher than normal O2 in blood

4

Anoxia

lack of O2

5

Apnea

lack of breathing

6

Eupnea

normal breathing at rest

7

Hypoxemia

lower than normal O2 concentration/pressure/saturation in blood

8

Hypocapnia

low PaCO2 in blood

9

Hyperoxia

high O2 concentration/pressure/saturation in lung, blood or tissues

10

Hypopnea

decreased rate and depth of breathing

11

Hyperventilation

increased ventilation in excess of metabolic needs resulting in decreased PaCO2 and increased PaO2

(from increased RR or TV: causing respiratory alkalosis)

12

Hypoxia

low/reduced O2 concentration/pressure/saturation in lung, blood or tissues

13

Hyperpnea

increased rate and depth of breathing in proportion to metabolic rate

14

Hypoventilation

decreased ventilation in regards to metabolic needs resulting in increased PaCO2 & decreased PaO2

(from decreased RR or TV & lead to respiratory acidosis)
