Example text

Posteriorly, the superior portion of the lung extends to about the level of T-1 and down to about the level of T-10 (Figure 2-5). The right lung is separated into the upper, middle, and lower lobes by the horizontal fissure and the oblique fissure. The horizontal fissure runs anteriorly from the fourth rib at Posterior Anterior Sternal notch Clavicle Manubrium Body of sternum C-7 Scapula Inferior angle of scapula Xiphoid process FIGURE 2-3 Anatomic landmarks of the chest. Chapter 2 The Physical Examination and Its Basis in Physiology 19 Midsternal line Left midclavicular line Anterior axillary line Midaxillary line Posterior axillary line Vertebral line Left midscapular line FIGURE 2-4 Imaginary vertical lines in the chest.

The horizontal fissure separates the right anterior upper lobe from the middle lobe. The oblique fissure runs laterally from the sixth or seventh rib and the midclavicular line to the fifth rib at the midaxillary line. From this point, the oblique fissure continues to run around the chest posteriorly and upward to about the level of T-3. Anteriorly, the oblique fissure divides the lower lobe from the lower border of the middle lobe. 20 Posteriorly, the oblique fissure separates the upper lobe from the lower lobe.

According to estimates, for every 1° C increase in body temperature, the patient’s oxygen consumption increases about 10%. As the metabolic rate increases, the cardiopulmonary system must work harder to meet the additional cellular demands. Hypothermia reduces the metabolic rate and cardiopulmonary demand. As shown in Figure 2-1, the normal body temperature is positioned within a relatively narrow range. A patient who has a temperature within the normal range is said to be afebrile. A body temperature above the normal range is called pyrexia or hyperthermia.
