What does resonant percussion mean?
Also question is, what is resonance sound of the lungs?
Since lungs are mostly filled with air that we breathe in, percussion performed over most of the lung area produces a resonant sound, which is a low pitched, hollow sound. Therefore, any dullness or hyper-resonance is indicative of lung pathology, such as pleural effusion or pneumothorax, respectively.
Additionally, what are normal percussion sounds? There are three main medical percussion sounds: resonance (heard over lungs), tympany (heard over the air-filled bowel loops), and dullness (heard over fluid or solid organs).
Secondly, what causes Hyperresonant percussion?
Hyperresonant sounds may also be heard when percussing lungs hyperinflated with air, such as may occur in patients with COPD, or patients having an acute asthmatic attack. An area of hyperresonance on one side of the chest may indicate a pneumothorax.
What is Aebe in respiratory system?
Auscultation of chest • Ask the patient to do deep breathing & put the stethascope on intercostal spaces • 1) If Intensity of sound is same on both sides ,it indicates equal air entry on both sides (AEBE = Air Entry Bilaterally equal ) – Mammary, Axillary • Supra scapular ,Inter scapular & Infra scapular • 2) By Type
