正确答案:
1. barrel shaped.
解释 :
This client has a barrel chest. The anterior-posterior diameter of the chest is larger than the transverse diameter, as is characteristic of the client with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Although the client may be muscular from lifting weights, the barrel chest is not associated with the client’s age, height, or weight. Use of bronchodilators will not change the shape of the client’s chest.
