Example text

A close look at hyperinflated alveoli In a hyperinflated lung, air becomes trapped in the alveoli, causing them to become hyperinflated as well. 96 Effect of PEEP on breath sounds The use of positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP) during mechanical ventilation increases functional residual capacity (the amount of air remaining in the airways at the end of normal expiration). Therefore, the lungs remain hyperinflated. Because increased amounts of air in the small airways and alveoli create a mismatch between the pleurae, chest wall, and the hyperinflated lung, breath sounds are diminished.

12, 13) That's because the upper lobe surfaces contact the trachea, and loud tracheal breath sounds travel directly to the dense, airless upper lobe tissues. In contrast, you'll only hear bronchial breath sounds over a dense, airless lower lobe when the bronchi are patent. That's because sound doesn't travel directly to the airless lower lobe tissues. What you hear In a patient with lobar pneumonia and right posterior midlung consolidation, you'll hear bronchial breath sounds over the right posterior midlung field.
