Atelectasis

Atelectasis is a complete or partial collapse of a lung or lobe of a lung – develops when the tiny air sacs within the lung become deflated. It is one of the most common breathing complications after surgery. It is also a possible complication of other respiratory problems including cystic fibrosis, inhaled foreign objects, severe asthma, etc. The amount of lung tissue involved in atelectasis is variable, depending on the cause. Signs and symptoms also vary.
