Alveoli are the air sacs in the lungs (located at the end of the bronchioles) that are responsible for the exchange of carbon dioxide & oxygen in the blood. Is this what you are talking about?

Did she say bolus possilby?

Main Entry: bo·lus
Pronunciation: 'bO-l&s
Function: noun
Etymology: Late Latin, from Greek bOlos lump
1 : a rounded mass: as a : a large pill b : a soft mass of chewed food
2 : a dose of a substance (as a drug) that is administered intravenously; specifically : a large dose given intravenously so that the desired therapeutic concentration in the blood is reached rapidly

For example: if one has a sick and/or dehydrated dog that needs IV fluids but the owner doesn't want to leave the dog at the clinic, we will administer a large amount of fluids under the skin & that is termed a "bolus" as well

thanks Miakoda

that sounds right, but they didn't need to insert anything or put her on an IV.... ????

maybe i should have them fax me the results.... she said it was nothing to worry about, but she's still on antibiotics.... so after that cycle is over i have to watch to see if her symptoms go away or if she still has cold like symptoms....
