138 Possible Causes for Bronchial Breath Sounds, Tracheal Tug

  • Pulmonary Consolidation

    Bronchial Breath Sounds Bronchial breath sounds often result from consolidation within lung parenchyma with a patent airway leading to the involved area.[] Oliver's Sign: Tracheal tug when patient lifts his chin up. Indicative of Aortic Aneurysm, pulling trachea downward by pressure of left main bronchus.[] sounds are bronchial Possible medium, late, or pan-inspiratory crackles Vocal resonance is increased.[]

  • Inhalation of Noxious Gases

    An additional and potentially ominous finding is when the patient is using accessory muscles to breathe, with associated tracheal tugging. 4,6,8,23,24 Note the patient’s voice[]

  • Atelectasis

    When the doctor listens to the lungs through a stethoscope (ausculation), diminished or bronchial breath sounds may be heard.[]

  • Allergic Asthma

    During an asthma attack, the muscles that surround the bronchial tubes constrict, narrowing the air passages and making it extremely difficult to breathe.[] Other common symptoms are wheezing and a rattling sound in the chest.[]

  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

    There has been renewal of interest in the use of prophylactic antibiotics to reduce the frequency of exacerbations and improve quality of life in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). To determine whether or not regular treatment of COPD patients with prophylactic antibiotics reduces exacerbations or[…][]

  • Pulmonary Edema

    Abstract Serotonin syndrome (SS) is a potentially life-threatening condition resulting from excessive central and peripheral serotonergic activity. Clinically, it is a triad of mental-status changes, neuromuscular abnormalities, and autonomic disturbances. It can be caused by intentional self-poisoning, overdose, or[…][]

  • Lobar Pneumonia

    Breath sounds are often asymmetric with pleural rubs and egophony. Tales and bronchial breath sounds are also commonly heard on auscultation.[] Key features on physical examination are dullness to percussion in a lobar pattern, bronchial breathing and adventitious breath sounds.[] The presence of bronchial breath sounds, pleural rubs, and egophony are highly suggestive of pneumonia, however, their absence doesn't exclude pneumonia.[]

    ) Rapid heart rate (tachycardia) Abnormal breathing sounds (rales, wheezing, whispering pectroriloquy and bronchial breathing) Low body temperature (hypothermia) if fever[] Productive cough Shortness of breath Fever (sometimes) Chest pain Patients with aspiration pneumonia may also exhibit with the following signs : Rapid breathing (tachypnea[]

  • Pneumococcal Pneumonia

    PURPOSE: The purpose of this study is to investigate whether exposure to nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) at the early stage of severe pneumococcal community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) requiring intensive care unit (ICU) admission may affect its presentation and outcome. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Medical[…][]

  • Pleural Effusion

    Above the effusion, where the lung is compressed, there may be bronchial breathing sounds and egophony.[] sounds Decreased Vocal resonance Bronchial breathing or aegophony (bleating vocal resonance) over top of effusion, due to lung compression Differential diagnosis of pleural[] […] examination will usually pick up effusion 500ml SOB Cough Chest pain Reduced chest wall movement Mediastinal deviation away (if large) Stony dullness to percussion Decreased breath[]
