Continuous quality care in the healthcare setting is critical. Risk management, patient safety, and full-disclosure programs play essential roles in quality care. Preventing medical errors, acknowledging the problem, and finding ways to resolve these issues are the program’s main goals. Implementing certain regulations can help decrease future errors and claims. “A successful risk management and full-disclosure program requires well-defined policies and procedures for responding to preventable adverse events, coupled with a dedication to transparency.” (Youngberg, 2011).
• Perfusion- blood flows though lungs. The Respiratory system consists of the Nose, Lungs, trachea, larynx, pharynx, bronchi and bronchioles mainly. And are divided into an upper and Lower Tract. The main functions of the respiratory system is to 1. Gas exchange 2.
Food thus moves into the pharynx and onwards by peristalsis aided by gravity. If we try to talk whilst swallowing food may enter the respiratory passages and a cough reflex expels the bolus.

Essentially, the definition originates from the buccinators, medial pterygoid, orbicularis oris muscles, superior constrictor, masseter, and the mylohyoid where the boundaries created the tissues spaces which surround the body compartments which surround the jaws.

Constants are modified by air flow obstruction and resonance while vowels are modified by resonance. Constants can be either voiced or breathed. Vowels are created by high amplitude waves and conversely consonant sounds are formed by low amplitude.
Desiree Smith 30104997 Cystic Fibrosis Cystic Fibrosis is an inherited disease characterized by the buildup of thick, sticky mucous that can cause severe damage to the body’s organs. Mucous is usually a slippery substance that lubricates and protects the linings of the airway, digestive system, reproductive system and other organs and tissue. Problems with digestion can lead to diarrhea, malnutrition, poor growth, and weight-loss. Due to the abnormally thick mucous it can can clog airways, leading to breathing problems and bacterial infections in the lungs. Bacterial infections can lead to coughing, wheezing and inflammation.
According to the parents, the patient was seen by a general physician at his clinic for fever, who on examination found her eyes slightly congested and prescribed Methachlor eye ointment (chloramphenicol 5mg/g+ dexamethasone 1mg/g) and Novophenicol eye drop (Chloramphenicol 0.5%). He also had prescribed syrup Cefim DS (Cefixime 200mg/5ml) and syrup Brufen for fever. Almost 30 minutes after the instillation of the first drop and ointment application, her mother saw blood flowing out of her eyes. She did not have any ocular or family ocular history. She had no known drug allergies.
At the base of the tongue is the epiglottis, an extension of a connective tissue that closes the voice box or larynx when swallowing food or water. The larynx conducts air to the lower respiratory tract and is involved in the production of sounds (voice). Lower Respiratory Tract The trachea, or windpipe, is a tubular organ that connects the larynx to the lungs. It is lined with special cells that produce mucus. From the trachea, air passes to the right and left lungs through their corresponding bronchi.
Describe the Human Respiratory System Question 1: Complete the table below by describing the structure and function of each part of the respiratory system listed. Structure Function Nose The nasal root is the top of the nose, forming an indentation at the suture where the nasal bones meet the frontal bone. The nose filters air with hairs and mucus, and moisturises and warms the air. Pharynx The pharynx (throat) is a mucosa-lined, muscular tube with three regions nasopharynx, oropharynx, and laryngopharynx. The nasopharynx functions in respiration only; the others serve both respiratory and digestive functions.
Question 2: Forced breathing differs from nor... ... middle of paper ... ...ntake of breaths. Secondly, whilst exercising there is a stronger rush of airflow into lungs that assist in clearing mucus. The purpose of mucus is protects and lubricate however it can accumulate becoming problematic (Fahy & Dickey, 2010). Excess mucus affects lung capacity causing it to decline, potentially block airway and increase risk of infections (Cavazos, 2013; Fahy & Dickey, 2010). Lastly, long-term physical activity leads to the expansion of capillaries.
Third, the pharynx or another word for the throat the throat is a musculomembranous cavity that is found behind the nasal cavities, mouth, and larynx. It extends from the posterior end of the nasal cavity to the superior end of the esophagus and larynx. It also divides into three sections. Those three sections are the nasopharynx, oropharynx, and laryngopharynx. The nasopharynx is the superior part of the pharynx that is found in the posterior of the nasal cavity.
