In present study, less percentage of wheeze and rhonchi
when compared to other studies because only stable COPD patients were included in the study.

We also auscultated the patient's lungs, looking for rhonchi
The patient's past medical history included scoliosis, acute lower back pain, right shoulder degenerative joint disease, atopic dermatitis, lymphadenitis, rhonchi
, insomnia, depression, and a long history of recurrent infections, particularly cutaneous staphylococcal and candida albicans infections, often accompanied by a purulent drainage.
Respiratory system examination revealed barrel shaped chest, distant breath sounds, early inspiratory crepitations and expiratory rhonchi
with raised jugular venous pressure.
Does stridor, wheeze or rhonchi
have also a musical quality?
Bilateral extensive rales and rhonchi
in the lungs were heard on auscultation and lung graphy revealed reticuloglandular appearance.
On chest examination, there were bilateral rhonchi
in middle and lower lobes and heart sounds wereabsent on left side and heard over the right side, rest of the examination was unremarkable.
On auscultation of chest, bilateral rhonchi
On auscultation, abnormal breath sounds with crackles and diffuse rhonchi
rapidly developed, while hypoxia was observed in oxymetry.

In the initial pulmonary auscultation, three of the 17 children had symmetrical vesicular murmur, and 14, asymmetrical vesicular murmur, reduced or absent; and 14 presented associated adventitious sounds, as for example, crepitations and rhonchi
Chest examination revealed bilateral coarse inspiratory and expiratory crepitation all over lung fields with bilateral rhonchi
or rales were heard and bronchoscopically no obvious stenosis or obstruction was seen in the trachea or bronchi.
