55 Possible Causes for Bronchial Breath Sounds, Hemothorax

  • Pulmonary Tuberculosis

    Severe or mixed type (Type III) presented auscultatory abnormalities and variegated sounds, i. e. bronchial breath sounds in 10/15 (66.7%) and coarse crackles in 12/15 (80.0[] Asthma 4 Care Plans Bronchiolitis 5 Care Plans Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia 5 Care Plans Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) 5 Care Plans Cystic Fibrosis 5 Care Plans Hemothorax[] Breath Sounds Dull chest pain, tightness, or discomfort [4] Dyspnea [4] Haemoptysis (late stage symptom) Associated Co-morbidities HIV/AIDS - due to comprised immunosuppressive[]

  • Atelectasis

    When the doctor listens to the lungs through a stethoscope (ausculation), diminished or bronchial breath sounds may be heard.[] This is frequently encountered secondary to pleural effusions, pneumothorax, or hemothorax.[] .  Abnormal airway clearance, such as with ciliary dyskinesia syndrome  Airway foreign body  Excessive pressure on the lung tissue (pleural effusion, pneumothorax, hemothorax[]

  • Lung Abscess

    On examination of the chest there will be features of consolidation such as localized dullness on percussion and bronchial breath sounds .[] Although surgical or percutaneous transpleural drainage is often required in such cases, the latter approach has some risks, including hemothorax and bronchopleural fistula[] (right over the abscess) increased tactile & vocal fremitus, crackles & rhonchi, dull percussion note, bronchial breath sounds, diminished breath sounds what are the results[]

  • Pulmonary Infarction

    Autopsies showed massive unilateral hemothorax in both patients.[] This may be difficult to distinguish from secondary hemothorax with an intact pleura, but rupture typically has a considerably more rapid clinical evolution.[]

  • Multidrug-resistant Tuberculosis

    Respiratory system exam revealed bronchial breath sounds in the right infraclavicular area. Admission baseline investigations showed anemia.[]

  • Pleural Effusion

    Above the effusion, where the lung is compressed, there may be bronchial breathing sounds and egophony .[] If blood is in the accumulating fluid, the condition is called "hemothorax;"; if pus is present, it is called "empyema;" if air enters the space, it is called "pneumothorax[] sounds Decreased Vocal resonance Bronchial breathing or aegophony (bleating vocal resonance) over top of effusion, due to lung compression Differential diagnosis of pleural[]

  • Chylothorax

    It is more commonly a reactive effusion, but it also may be caused by hemothorax, empyema or, less commonly, a chylothorax.[] […] algorithm that we used in treating a 70-year-old lady with Bechterev disease, who suffered from a blunt chest injury with subsequent right-sided serial ribs fracture with hemothorax[]

  • Aspergilloma

    On physical examination, there may be dull note on percussion, bronchial breath sounds at affected part[1] .[] In group A, 3 cases and 2 in group B underwent a secondary operation for post operative hemothorax. Bronchopleural fistula occurred exclusively in group A (n   4).[] On examination, vitals were stable, and respiratory system examination revealed bronchial breath sounds in left upper lobe with crepitations.[]

  • Hemoptysis

    On auscultation, air entry is diminished over the right hemithorax with bronchial breath sounds in the right 4 th and 5 th intercostal spaces.[] Right hemothorax also occurred, and surgical lung resection was performed to control the bleeding.[] Common surgical complications include empyema, bronchopleural fistula, postoperative pulmonary hemorrhage, prolonged respiratory failure, wound infection, and hemothorax.[]

  • Bronchiectasis

    A massive hemothorax from a ruptured bronchial artery aneurysm (BAA) is very rare. Only 12 cases of ruptured mediastinal BAA have been reported.[] In the absence of trauma or other causes for hemothorax and mediastinal hemorrhage, the possibility of a BAA should be considered.[] This case study describes a 77-year-old female with bronchiectasis who presented with anemia, hypertension, hemothorax, and a mediastinal mass.[]
