Flashcards in Pulmonary Deck (20):
Heard during end of inspiration. High-pitched discrete crackling not cleared by cough.
Heard during mid-step of inspiration. Lower, moist, not cleared with cough.
Heard during inspiration. loud, bubbly, not cleared with cough.
Heard on expiration > inspiration. Musical, high pitched, hissing, squeak. Continuous. In lower airway suggestive of narrowing.
Upper airway wheeze.
Continuous through inspiration and expiration. Loud, low and course. Similar to snore or honk.
Dullness in lung fields may suggest
Areas of pneumonia consolidation
Tympany or precussion in lung fields may suggest
Hyperresonance in lung fields may suggest
Tracheal Auscultated sounds
Harsh, high pitched. Inspiratory=expiratory.
Bronchial Auscultated sounds
Heard over large airways. Relatively high pitched. Inspiratory < expiratory.
Bronchovesicular Auscultated sounds
Heard mid chest. Medium pitch. Inspiratory=expiratory.
Vesicular Auscultated sounds
Heard over healthy lung tissue. Soft. Low pitched. Inspiratory > expiratory.
Lateral curvature of the spine
A dry, rubbing, or grating sound heard on ausciltation, caused by friction between the parietal and visceral pleaurae
Abnormally large drop in systolic BP and pulse amplitude during inspiration.
Confers density of lungs
Spoken words louder than normal (confers lung consolidation).
Whispered words have increased intensity and pitch (confers lung consolidation).
