This situational association may not always be present. • Positional breathlessness: • Orthopnoea typifies cardiogenic pulmonary oedema, but may also be seen in diaphragmatic weakness and severe COPD.

Factors affecting respiratory resistance Lung volume influences airway resistance. As lung volume is reduced all air containing components, including conducting airways, reduce in size and therefore resistance increases. At low lung volumes or during a rapid expiration airway collapse occurs and may result in gas becoming trapped distally. This causes an increase in FRC and residual volume. Use of continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) or PEEP helps to prevent this by increasing the transmural pressure gradient, reducing airway resistance and preventing airway collapse and gas trapping.

1) is increased in this position so the diaphragm works efficiently. • Lateral—the lower dome of the diaphragm is displaced cephalad so is more effective than the upper dome. Ventilation of the lower lung is twice that of the upper, which matches the preferential perfusion to the lower lung. 5 6 SECTION 1 The patient with respiratory failure • Prone—as in the supine position the diaphragm moves cephalad into the chest.
