  • Hyperactive Airway Disease

    Hyperresonance of the lungs – Hyperresonance may indicate lung consolidation because of accumulation of pulmonary secretions.[healthfoxx.com]

  • Catamenial Pneumothorax

    Physical examination was remarkable for decreased breath sounds and hyperresonance over the right hemithorax. Her labs were unremarkable.[amjmed.org] Physical findings classically consist of absent tactile fremitus, hyperresonance to percussion, and decreased breath sounds on the affected side.[merckmanuals.com] […] clinical finding (single most common finding) Keep high index of suspicion COPD patients Tall, thin males Changes on affected side Unilateral absent or decreased breath sounds Hyperresonance[fpnotebook.com]

  • Pulmonary Barotrauma

    Tension pneumothorax, although rare with barotrauma, can cause hypotension, distended neck veins, hyperresonance to percussion, and, as a late finding, tracheal deviation.[merckmanuals.com]
