260 Possible Causes for Increased Breath Sounds, Tracheal Tug

  • Pulmonary Consolidation

    Percussion is dull in the affected area Breath sounds are bronchial Possible medium, late, or pan-inspiratory crackles Vocal resonance is increased.[] Oliver's Sign: Tracheal tug when patient lifts his chin up. Indicative of Aortic Aneurysm, pulling trachea downward by pressure of left main bronchus.[] Hyperresonant No Away from lesion (increased pressure pushes mediastinum to opposite side) breath sounds Emphysema Hyperresonant Reduced -- breath sounds wheezing Asthma[]

  • Mediastinal Neoplasm

  • Bacterial Pneumonia

    Signs: Increased breathing frequency (tachypnea) and heart rate (tachycardia) Paleness, excessive sweating , clammy skin Crackling sounds, decreased breathing sounds or wheezing[] Rhonchi develops due to airway obstruction, increased secretions, and bronchospasms.[] Late symptoms (after few days) include sharp, stabbing chest pain triggered by deep breathing (due to pleurisy ) and persistent dry cough and fatigue that slowly wear off.[]

  • Pulmonary Fibrosis

    BACKGROUND: Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a lethal lung disease of unknown etiology. Patients present loss of lung function, dyspnea and dry cough. Diagnosis requires compatible radiologic imaging and, in undetermined cases, invasive procedures such as bronchoscopy and surgical lung biopsy. The[…][]

  • Aortic Dilation

    BACKGROUND: Mutations in the genes ENG, ACVRL1 and SMAD4 that are part of the transforming growth factor-beta signalling pathway cause hereditary haemorrhagic telangiectasia (HHT). Mutations in non-HHT genes within this same pathway have been found to associate with aortic dilation. Therefore, we investigated[…][]

Usually we could relieve it with ventolin (4-6 puffs) about 1/2-1hr apart?[]
