    um... this is restrictive so id say respiratory frefrequency would decrease.. and hm.. just cause itll be harder to fill up the lungs id say tidal volume would decrease.. not too sure about that one in this case though
    before you criticize someone .. walk a mile in their shoes... that way you wil be a mile away ... and you will have their shoes. Hidden Content

    I think it's G.

    Restrictive diseases; all lung volumes and lung capacities are decresed, tachypnea

    I agree with stepanida (G)
    restrictive lung disease
    problem in air getting air into lung(decreased compliance)
    once air is in the lungs it comes out rapidly on expiration
    and also
    all VOLUMES and CAPACITIES
    are equally decreased

    respiratory frequency should increase. Just imagine an 800 pound gorilla sitting on your chest and you cannot get as much air in your lung as you would like. You would therefore compensate by breathing more (i.e. increase the frequency) but the total amount of air being delivered should decrease.

    I think so too, but I think a gorilla sitting on my chest would cause my chest to collapse. I think a chimpanzee sitting on my chest is better

    I agree that G is the correct answer.
