Practical lesson №21, 22

Topic 21. “Pathology of breathing”

Topic 22. “Respiratory failure. Hypoxia”.

The student must be aware of:

about the respiratory system;

– about the process of breathing;

– about the types and mechanisms of respiratory disorders;

– about clinical manifestations of external respiration disorders;

The student must know:

the main causes of respiratory failure;

– violation of alveolar ventilation;

– pneumothorax;

– impaired perfusion of pulmonary capillaries;

– violation of the diffusion of gases through the air-blood barrier;

– definition of concepts: “dyspnea”, “bradypnea”, “tachypnea”, “hyperpnea”;

– types of periodic pathological breathing;

The student must be able to:

use medical terminology;

-draw and schematically depict pathological changes in the respiratory organs.

1. Study the materials of lecture No. 2.1 “ Respiratory Pathology. Respiratory

failure. Hypoxia”

C) All of the above occurs.

10. HYPOXIA – happens:

A) congenital and acquired;

B) external and internal:

C) respiratory and mixed.

Fill in the tables: “Stages of breathing”, “Insufficiency of breathing and its manifestations”

(Methodological recommendations “Recommendations for filling out tables”).

5. Make a graphic image: “Types of periodic breathing.”

(Methodological recommendations No. 3 “Recommendations for compiling crossword puzzles and graphic structures”).

( Draw the corresponding curves and note the pathologies in which they are observed )

6. Make a graphic image: “Types of pneumothorax”

(Methodological recommendations No. 3 “Recommendations for compiling crossword puzzles and graphic structures”).

7. Define :

8. Fill in the columns of the structure “Classification of hypoxia depending on the causes and mechanisms of development:

Fill in the table “Types of hypoxia, causes and mechanisms of its development”

Type of hypoxia Cause Mechanism of development


Respiratory————————————————- ———————

Exogenous————————————————- —————————-

Blood————————————————- ——————————

Circulatory————————————————- ——————–

10. Write definitions of concepts :

Hypoxemia – ____________________________________________________________

Hypocapnia – ____________________________________________________________

11. How do the parameters indicated in the columns change during cardiovascular hypoxia (increase or decrease):

12. Solve the crossword puzzle:


1. Reservoir organs – places where blood is stored in the body

2. Oxygen starvation of tissues

3. Gas necessary for living organisms to breathe

4. Decrease in the concentration of CO 2 in the blood

5. A product that is formed in cells during respiration


1. Elementary structure of the brain most sensitive to hypoxia

2. Reduced blood oxygen pressure

3. Suffocation

4. Rapid breathing

5. Red blood cell protein that transports oxygen to cells.

13. Solve situational problems:

Task 1. A student in the class at the 6th lesson lost consciousness. It was stuffy in the classroom, the temperature in the room was 29 0 C. What pathological process caused fainting? (justify your answer) ________________________________________________

What rules of organization of the educational process were violated? __________________

Task 2. What type of hypoxia develops in pneumonia? ___________________________________________________________

Task 3 . Why does a person’s breathing become faster when he loses blood? ___________________________________________________________

Task 4 . Why does exercise tolerance decrease sharply with anemia? _______________________________________________________________

14. Make a dictionary of medical terminology on the topic:

Respiratory Pathology. Respiratory failure. Hypoxia”

(see Methodological recommendations No. 6 “Compiling a dictionary of medical terminology”)
