Quiz Question 1 of 12

The attending physician asks you to get the forced expiration tracings of two patients, one who has emphysema and one who has active asthma. On your way back from the pulmonary lab, you trip and drop the two folders, the unlabelled tracings fall out. Assuming you learned your pulmonary physiology, should you be able to tell the difference between the tracings and put each back in the appropriate folder?

The correct answer is (b) Tracings look similar. Both produce obstructive expiratory flow patterns.
