46 Possible Causes for Increased Tactile Fremitus, Rales

  • Aspiration Pneumonia

    Increased vibration of the chest when speaking, known as tactile fremitus, and increased volume of whispered speech during auscultation can also indicate fluid. [14] When[] In the absence of an obvious predisposition, the abrupt onset of a self-limited illness characterized by dyspnea, cyanosis, and low-grade fever associated with diffuse rales[] Aspiration pneumonia shows the following signs: fever, tachypnea, tachycardia, decrease in breath sounds, rales, hyporexia, and/or hypotension.[]

  • Bacterial Pneumonia

    fremitus - Consolidation would increase the transmission of vocal vibrations and manifest as increased tactile fremitus. ( ) dullness to percussion CXR: patchy, segmental[] S. pneumoniae, H. influenzae (consolidation, no rales) * What types are typically bronchopneumonia?[] Investigations for Bacterial Pneumonia Physical exam where the doctor listens to the patient's chest using a stethoscope for abnormal chest sounds such as rales, wheezing[]

  • Pneumococcal Pneumonia

    A detailed physical exam will identify rales in most patients, dullness on percussion (along with other signs of empyema) and splinting due to pain in about half of patients[]

  • Bronchogenic Carcinoma

    Abstract This paper reports 2 cases of primary hypertrophic osteoarthopathy (PHO) which evolved into secondary hypertrophic osteoarthopathy (SHO) under the influence of bronchogenic carcinoma. The patients had a clinical picture of primary hypertrophic osteoarthropathy but without any signs of disease[…][]

  • Gram-Negative Pneumonia

    Abstract Currently, in vitro synergy with colistin has not translated into improved clinical outcomes. This study aimed to compare colistin combination therapy to colistin monotherapy in critically ill patients with multi-drug resistant gram-negative (MDR-GN) pneumonia. This was a retrospective analysis of critically ill[…][]

  • Pulmonary Tuberculosis

    On examination he is thin, appears comfortable, and has faint rales in the right middle lung zone. Figure 1.[] Rales or crackles may be heard in the area of involvement and bronchial breathing indicating consolidation.[]

  • Staphylococcal Pneumonia

    Early diminished breath sounds, scattered rales, and rhonchi are commonly heard over the affected lung.[]

  • Lung Abscess

    (right over the abscess) increased tactile & vocal fremitus, crackles & rhonchi, dull percussion note, bronchial breath sounds, diminished breath sounds what are the results[]

  • Bronchiectasis

    Chest auscultation revealed scattered coarse rales.[]
