19. Which test will help determine if there are any abnormalities with the pulmonary function tests? (Hint: It is not airway clearance.) Auscultation through both ears can be used to evaluate which area(s) are affected by narrowing due to scar tissue from previous surgery, chronic bronchitis, cystic fibrosis, etc., allowing for removal of these obstructions via surgery before permanent damage occurs to other areas that may result in death later on as irreversible blockage develops at these sites requiring intervention sooner than later! Remember this important fact when you hear about your patient’s problem being fixed once they have died! These patients go straight into hell without ever having had their problems addressed first even though it would have saved them so much pain beforehand! Also remember that some physicians do not know how this procedure works because many never were taught it at medical school nor did their parents teach them since they explained everything correctly all along but simply didn’t know how it worked themselves until someone showed them; thus causing hours upon hours wasted
