In a design for a piece of medical apparatus, you need a material that is easily compressed when a pressure is applied to it.
Would this material have a large bulk modulus, small bulk modulus, or is the bulk modulus not relevant to this situation?

Pressure= bulkmodulus*deltaV
Easily compressed means big deltaV, so bulk modules has to be small. 
large bulk modulus

The answer is small.
