Bronchiectasis = breath sounds? Rhonchi
Bronchitis = percussion? Resonant
Bronchitis = fremitus? Normal
Bronchitis = breath sounds? Rales
Emphysema = percussion? Hyperressonant
Emphysema = fremitus? Decreased
Emphysema = breath sounds? Wheezing
Pleurisy = percussion? Resonant
Pleurisy = fremitus? Decreased
Pleurisy = breath sounds? Crackles (Friction Rub)

Pneumothorax = breath sounds? decreased
Pneumonia = percussion? Dull
Pneumonia = fremitus? Increased
Pneumonia = breath sounds? Egophony, bronchophony, whispering pectoriloquy, Crack
If the words "1,2,3" are heard clearly and distincly, consolidation is present. = what test? Whispered Pectoriloquy
