I guess you refer to the pulmonary valve stenosis which usually is due to the valve calcification when less blood supply will go from right ventricle of heart to the pulmonary… circulation. The right ventricle will be hypertrophied because it's working harder then before. (MORE)
Hi: in my Anatomy & Physiology II our teacher explained Pulmonary capacity as the sum of two or more primary lung volumes. There are five pulmonary capacities: .
Inspiratory …Capacity (IC) IC= TV + IRV .
Expiratory Capacity (EC) EC= TV + ERV .
Functional Residual Capacity (FRC) FRC= ERV + RV .
Vital Capacity (VC) VC= IRV + TV + ERV .
Total Lung Capacity (TLC) TLC= IRV + TV + ERV + RV TV = Tidal volume. IRV= Inspiratory reserve volume. ERV= Expiratory reserve volume. RV =Residual volume. Pulmonary volumes and capacities are measure, usually, when is suspected a respiratory disease because volumes and capacities changes with respiratory diseases. (MORE)
A pulmonary nodule is a small round or oval-shaped growth in the lung. It is sometimes also called a spot on the lung or a coin lesion. Pulmonary nodules are generally smaller… than 3 centimeters in diameter. If the growth is larger than that, it is known as a pulmonary mass. A mass is more likely to represent a cancer than is a nodule. (MORE)
There is a pulmonary trunk and an aortic arch in the heart. The pulmonary trunk sends oxygen poor blood from the right ventricle up through it to the lungs to gain oxygen …and then comes back into the heart via the left atrium. The aortic arch sends out blood to the entire body from the left ventricle. (MORE)
transports de oxygenated blood from the heart to the lungs to be oxygenated. On a side note, the pulmory arteries bring back the oxygenated blood from the lungs to the heart l…ater to be pumped out of the left ventricle into the Aorta (MORE)
