Bruits, ophthalmodynamometry and rectilinear scanning on transient ischemic attacks. (1/162)

One hundred seventeen patients with clinical signs and symptoms of transient ischemic attacks (TIAs) were evaluated. All underwent clinical evaluation for bruit, ophthalmodynamometry, rapid sequence scintiphotography with rectilinear scanning and four-vessel cerebral angiography. The results of these tests were compared for reliability in predicting location of lesions causing transient ischemic attacks. Angiography remains the most accurate procedure in evaluating extracranial vascular lesions. When determination of bruits, ophthalmodynamometry and brain scanning are done together, accuracy is greater than when any one of the procedures is done alone.  (+info)

Comparison of four methods for assessing airway sealing pressure with the laryngeal mask airway in adult patients. (2/162)

We have compared four tests for assessing airway sealing pressure with the laryngeal mask airway (LMA) to test the hypothesis that airway sealing pressure and inter-observer reliability differ between tests. We studied 80 paralysed, anaesthetized adult patients. Four different airway sealing pressure tests were performed in random order on each patient by two observers blinded to each other's measurements: test 1 involved detection of an audible noise; test 2 was detection of end-tidal carbon dioxide in the oral cavity; test 3 was observation of the aneroid manometer dial as the pressure increased to note the airway pressure at which the dial reached stability; and test 4 was detection of an audible noise by neck auscultation. Mean airway sealing pressure ranged from 19.5 to 21.3 cm H2O and intra-class correlation coefficient was 0.95-0.99. Inter-observer reliability of all tests was classed as excellent. The manometric stability test had a higher mean airway sealing pressure (P < 0.0001) and better inter-observer reliability (P < 0.0001) compared with the three other tests. We conclude that for clinical purposes all four tests are excellent, but that the manometric stability test may be more appropriate for researchers comparing airway sealing pressures.  (+info)

Effect of positioning on recorded lung sound intensities in subjects without pulmonary dysfunction. (3/162)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Physical therapists often use positioning to assist in the reexpansion of collapsed lung segments. An increase in lung sound intensity on auscultation is considered indicative of lung expansion. This study was designed to examine whether clinical interpretation of auscultatory findings is warranted. SUBJECTS: The subjects (5 male, 6 female) were young physical therapist students without pulmonary dysfunction (mean age=20.4 years, mean height=166.3 cm, mean weight=57.5 kg). Subjects with lung disease were excluded because pulmonary pathology is difficult to standardize. METHODS: Lung sounds electronically recorded over the posterior chest wall of subjects in sitting and side-lying positions were compared. Measures included peak intensity, frequency at maximum power, and median frequency. RESULTS: In the sitting position, inspiratory sounds recorded over the left posterior chest wall were louder than those recorded on the right side. In the side-lying positions, the sound intensity recorded from the dependent chest wall was louder than that recorded from the nondependent chest wall. In side-lying positions, the upper hemithorax is "nondependent," and the side in contact with the bed is "dependent." Sound intensities recorded over both posterior chest walls in the sitting position were louder than those recorded over the same lung area in the nondependent side-lying position. There was no difference in the sound intensity recorded between the sitting and dependent side-lying postures. CONCLUSION AND DISCUSSION: When comparative auscultation of the chest wall is used by physical therapists to assess the adequacy of pulmonary ventilation, patient posture and regional differences in breath sound intensity can influence clinical interpretation.  (+info)

Heart murmurs in pediatric patients: when do you refer? (4/162)

Many normal children have heart murmurs, but most children do not have heart disease. An appropriate history and a properly conducted physical examination can identify children at increased risk for significant heart disease. Pathologic causes of systolic murmurs include atrial and ventricular septal defects, pulmonary or aortic outflow tract abnormalities, and patent ductus arteriosus. An atrial septal defect is often confused with a functional murmur, but the conditions can usually be differentiated based on specific physical findings. Characteristics of pathologic murmurs include a sound level of grade 3 or louder, a diastolic murmur or an increase in intensity when the patient is standing. Most children with any of these findings should be referred to a pediatric cardiologist.  (+info)

Methacholine challenge in preschool children: methacholine-induced wheeze versus transcutaneous oximetry. (5/162)

Tracheal/chest auscultation for wheeze and transcutaneous oximetry have both been suggested as measures of outcome in bronchial provocation tests in young children. This study aimed to compare the sensitivity and safety of these two techniques as end-points for methacholine challenge in children aged <4 yrs. Seventy-two methacholine challenges were performed in 39 children aged <4 yrs with recurrent wheeze. Arterial oxygen saturation (Sa,O2) and transcutaneous oxygen pressure tcPO2 continuously, and the test was terminated when wheeze was heard or at Sa,O2 <91%. tcPO2 was not used as an end-point. Wheeze or desaturation occurred at < or =8 mg x mL(-1) methacholine in every test. One child had transient clinical cyanosis, but no other ill-effects were seen. Fifty-six tests (78%) were terminated for wheeze, seven (10%) for fall in Sa,O2 and nine (12%) showed simultaneous responses in both parameters. Twenty-eight tests (39%) contained a fall in tcPO2 >3 kPa but six of these also showed a significant rise. Fifty-three tests (75%) contained a fall in tcPO2 >15%, but 20 of these also showed a significant rise. Tracheal/chest auscultation with Sa,O2 monitoring is a sensitive and relatively safe end-point for bronchial challenges in preschool children. The erratic pattern of transcutaneous oxygen pressure response in some children casts doubt on its reliability as a proxy measure of bronchial obstruction.  (+info)

Acoustic monitoring of intraoperative neuromuscular block. (6/162)

Standard methods for accurate intraoperative measurement of neuromuscular block are either expensive or inconvenient and are not used widely. We have evaluated a new method of monitoring neuromuscular block using a low-frequency microphone. The method is based on the phenomenon of low-frequency sound emission by contracting skeletal muscle. Acoustic monitoring (MIC) with an air-coupled microphone was used to evaluate intraoperative neuromuscular block in 25 anaesthetized patients. The MIC recorded the response of the adductor pollicis muscle to supramaximal electrical stimulation of the ulnar nerve with train-of-four stimuli. The ratios of the first response (TI) to control (TC) were used for evaluation. Data obtained from the MIC were compared with simultaneous recordings, from the same hand, of mechanomyography (FDT), electromyography (EMG) and accelerography (ACC). Throughout the operative procedure, TI/TC ratios of the acoustic method correlated with the three reference devices: FDT, 12 patients, 262 data sets, r = 0.86, bias (%MIC-%FDT) = mean -5.3 (SD 19.6)%; EMG, 18 patients, 490 data sets, r = 0.85, bias (%MIC-%EMG) = -0.39 (20.29)%; and ACC, 13 patients, 328 data sets, r = 0.91, bias (%MIC-%ACC) = -3.0 (15.6)%. We conclude that monitoring intraoperative neuromuscular block by a microphone which transduces low-frequency muscle sounds is clinically feasible.  (+info)

A new double cuff sphygmotonometer for accurate blood pressure measurement. (7/162)

Accurate measurement of blood pressure (BP) is essential in the diagnosis and treatment of hypertension, but neither auscultatory nor oscillometric methods measure intra-arterial BP accurately in all circumstances. Algorithms for automatic BP-measuring devices differ from manufacturer to manufacturer, and no clear authorized algorithm criteria have yet been established. We have devised a double-cuff sphygmotonometer to measure BP on the basis of clear algorithms, and investigated the accuracy of this new method by comparing it with the photo-oscillometric method, which is the most accurate method for non-invasive measurement of intra-arterial BP. In the new method, a small cuff (3x6 cm) replaces the photo-sensor in the brachial cuff (13x24 cm) of the photo-oscillometric device, and BP is determined by means of the oscillation within the small cuff. The comparison based on procedures of AAMI-protocol was performed in 136 hypertensive patients and 54 normotensive subjects. The difference in systolic BP between the photooscillometric and double-cuff methods was -2.26+/-2.31 mmHg (89% under 5 mmHg), and the corresponding difference in diastolic BP was 1.9+/-2.50 mmHg (94% under 5 mmHg). In conclusion, we have devised a new double-cuff method which improves on the photo-oscillometric method, and although it seems to be less accurate than the photo-oscillometric method, the clarity of its algorithm makes it superior to the conventional oscillometric and auscultatory methods employing only one cuff.  (+info)

The clinical evaluation of the Respi-check mask: a new oxygen mask incorporating a breathing indicator. (8/162)

Study objective-To investigate the correlation between the Respi-check sensor and simultaneous chest auscultation in determining the respiratory rates in adults. METHODS: Random visits to a local accident and emergency (A&E) department were made and all patients wearing oxygen masks were recruited into the study. The new sensor was attached to the outside of the mask. One researcher auscultated the chest to count breaths, the other counted the sensor activity. Each was blinded to the activities of the other. Breaths were counted by each researcher simultaneously and independently over one minute. A total of 40 patients were recruited into the study. A difference of more than two breaths/min compared with chest auscultation was deemed as a sensor failure. RESULTS: The respiratory rates of 40 patients were measured. There were 28 men, 12 women. Twenty six patients were wearing an Intersurgical high concentration (flow 12l/min) mask, 14 were wearing an aerosol mask with variable venturi (flow 3-12l/min) by Medicaid. Over one minute rates determined by the two methods were the same in 28 cases (70%). It was accurate to within one breath in 37 cases (93%) and to within two breaths in 39 (98%) cases and in one case (2.5%) the sensor failed. The mean difference (mean of the differences between rates obtained from auscultation and the new sensor) was -0.1282 breaths/min, with limits of agreement (d (2SD) between -1.414 to 1.157 breaths/min. CONCLUSION: The Respi-check sensor provides an accurate method of estimating the respiratory rate in adult patients attending the A&E department.  (+info)

*Nosebleed

... s are due to the rupture of a blood vessel within the richly perfused nasal mucosa. Rupture may be spontaneous or initiated by trauma. Nosebleeds are reported in up to 60% of the population with peak incidences in those under the age of ten and over the age of 50 and appear to occur in males more than females.[6] An increase in blood pressure (e.g. due to general hypertension) tends to increase the duration of spontaneous epistaxis.[7] Anticoagulant medication and disorders of blood clotting can promote and prolong bleeding. Spontaneous epistaxis is more common in the elderly as the nasal mucosa (lining) becomes dry and thin and blood pressure tends to be higher. The elderly are also more prone to prolonged nose bleeds as their blood vessels are less able to constrict and control the bleeding.. The vast majority of nose bleeds occur in the anterior (front) part of the nose from the nasal septum. This area is richly endowed with blood vessels (Kiesselbach's plexus). This region is also ...

*Symptom

A symptom (from Greek σύμπτωμα, "accident, misfortune, that which befalls",[1] from συμπίπτω, "I befall", from συν- "together, with" and πίπτω, "I fall") is a departure from normal function or feeling which is apparent to a patient, reflecting the presence of an unusual state, or of a disease. A symptom can be subjective or objective. Tiredness is a subjective symptom whereas cough or fever are objective symptoms.[2] In contrast to a symptom, a sign is a clue to a disease elicited by an examiner or a doctor.[3] For example, paresthesia is a symptom (only the person experiencing it can directly observe their own tingling feeling), whereas erythema is a sign (anyone can confirm that the skin is redder than usual). Symptoms and signs are often nonspecific, but often combinations of them are at least suggestive of certain diagnoses, helping to narrow down what may be wrong. In other cases they are specific even to the point of being pathognomonic. The term is sometimes also ...

*Hiccup

... s are normally waited out, as any fit of them will usually pass quickly. Folkloric 'cures' for hiccups are common and varied, but no effective standard for stopping hiccups has been documented. Hiccups are treated medically only in severe and persistent (termed "intractable") cases. Numerous medical remedies exist but no particular treatment is known to be especially effective, generally because of a paucity of high-quality evidence.[15][16] Many drugs have been used, such as baclofen, chlorpromazine, metoclopramide, gabapentin, and various proton-pump inhibitors. Hiccups that are secondary to some other cause like gastroesophageal reflux disease or esophageal webs are dealt with by treating the underlying disorder. The phrenic nerve can be blocked temporarily with injection of 0.5% procaine, or permanently with bilateral phrenicotomy or other forms of surgical destruction. Even this rather drastic treatment does not cure some cases, however. An anecdotal medical approach is to install ...

*Hypocapnia

Even when marked, hypocapnia is normally well tolerated. Symptoms include tingling sensation (usually in the limbs), abnormal heartbeat, painful muscle cramps, and seizures. Acute hypocapnia causes hypocapnic alkalosis, which causes cerebral vasoconstriction leading to cerebral hypoxia, and this can cause transient dizziness, fainting, and anxiety.[1] A low partial pressure of carbon dioxide in the blood also causes alkalosis (because CO2 is acidic in solution), leading to lowered plasma calcium ions and increased nerve and muscle excitability. This explains the other common symptoms of hyperventilation -pins and needles, muscle cramps and tetany in the extremities, especially hands and feet.[citation needed] Because the brain stem regulates breathing by monitoring the level of blood CO2 instead of O2, hypocapnia can suppress breathing to the point of blackout from cerebral hypoxia, as exhibited in shallow water blackout. Hypocapnia also results in bronchoconstriction[1] in order to decrease ...

*Asphyxia

Compressive asphyxia (also called chest compression) is mechanically limiting expansion of the lungs by compressing the torso, hence interfering with breathing. Compressive asphyxia occurs when the chest or abdomen is compressed posteriorly.[7] "Traumatic asphyxia" or "crush asphyxia" usually refers to compressive asphyxia resulting from being crushed or pinned under a large weight or force. An example of traumatic asphyxia includes cases where an individual has been using a car-jack to repair a car from below, and is crushed under the weight of the vehicle.[5] Pythons, anacondas, and other constrictor snakes kill through compressive asphyxia. In cases of co-sleeping ("overlay"), the weight of an adult or large child may compress an infant's chest, preventing proper expansion of the chest. Risk factors include large or obese adults, parental fatigue or impairment (sedation by drugs or alcohol) of the co-sleeping adult and a small shared sleeping space (for example, both adult and infant sharing ...

*Hiccup

An international respiratory research group composed of members from Canada, France, and Japan proposed that the hiccup is an evolutionary remnant of earlier amphibian respiration.[13] Amphibians such as tadpoles gulp air and water across their gills via a rather simple motor reflex akin to mammalian hiccuping. The motor pathways that enable hiccuping form early during fetal development, before the motor pathways that enable normal lung ventilation form. Thus, the hiccup is evolutionarily antecedent to modern lung respiration. Additionally, this group (C. Straus et al.) points out that hiccups and amphibian gulping are inhibited by elevated CO2 and may be stopped by GABAB receptor agonists, illustrating a possible shared physiology and evolutionary heritage. These proposals may explain why premature infants spend 2.5% of their time hiccuping, possibly gulping like amphibians, as their lungs are not yet fully formed.[14] Fetal intrauterine hiccups are of two types. The physiological type occurs ...

*Choking

... is caused by an object from outside the body, also called a foreign body, blocking the airway.[5] The object can block the upper or lower airway passages.[6] The airway obstruction is usually partial but can also be complete.[6]. Among children, the most common causes of choking are food, coins, toys, and balloons.[5] In one study, peanuts were the most common object found in the airway of children evaluated for suspected foreign body aspiration.[7] Foods that pose a high risk of choking include hot dogs, hard candy, nuts, seeds, whole grapes, raw carrots, apples, popcorn, peanut butter, marshmallows, chewing gum, and sausages.[5] The most common cause of choking death in children is latex balloons.[5] Small, round non-food objects such as balls, marbles, toys, and toy parts are also associated with a high risk of choking death because of their potential to completely block a child's airway.[5]. Children younger than age three are especially at risk of choking because they explore the ...

*Wheeze

... s occupy different portions of the respiratory cycle depending on the site of airway obstruction and its nature. The fraction of the respiratory cycle during which a wheeze is produced roughly corresponds to the degree of airway obstruction.[2][3] Bronchiolar disease usually causes wheezing that occurs in the expiratory phase of respiration. As a rule, extrathoracic airway obstruction produce inspiratory sounds. Intrathoracic major airway obstruction produces inspiratory as well as expiratory sounds. Distal airway obstruction predominantly produces expiratory sounds.[4] The presence of expiratory phase wheezing signifies that the patient's peak expiratory flow rate is less than 50% of normal.[5] Wheezing heard in the inspiratory phase, on the other hand, is often a sign of a stiff stenosis, usually caused by tumors, foreign bodies or scarring. This is especially true if the wheeze is monotonal, occurs throughout the inspiratory phase (i.e. is "holoinspiratory"), and is heard more ...

*Cyanosis

... is the bluish or purplish discolouration of the skin or mucous membranes due to the tissues near the skin surface having low oxygen saturation. Based on Lundsgaard and Van Slyke's work,[1] it is classically described as occurring if 5.0 g/dL of deoxyhemoglobin or greater is present.[2] This was based on an estimate of capillary saturation based on a mean of arterial versus peripheral venous blood gas measurements.[3] Since estimation of hypoxia is usually now based either on arterial blood gas measurement or pulse oximetry, this is probably an overestimate, with evidence that levels of 2.0 g/dL of deoxyhemoglobin may reliably produce cyanosis.[4] Since, however, the presence of cyanosis is dependent upon there being an absolute quantity of deoxyhemoglobin, the bluish color is more readily apparent in those with high hemoglobin counts than it is with those with anemia. Also, the bluer the color, the more difficult it is to detect on deeply pigmented skin. When signs of cyanosis first ...

Though lung sounds auscultation is important for the diagnosis and monitoring of lung diseases, the spectral characteristics of lung sounds have not been fully understood. This study compared the spectral characteristics of lung sounds between the right and left lungs and between healthy male and female subjects using a dual-channel auscultation system. Forty-two subjects aged 18-22 years without smoking habits and any known pulmonary diseases participated in this study. The lung sounds were recorded from seven pairs of auscultation sites on the chest wall simultaneously. We found that in four out of seven auscultation pairs, the lung sounds from the left lung had a higher total power (PT) than those from the right lung. The PT of male subjects was higher than that of female ones in most auscultation pairs. The ratio of inspiration power to expiration power (RI/E) of lung sounds from the right lung was greater than that from the left lung at auscultation pairs on the anterior chest wall, while this
Respiratory sound analysis is a simple and noninvasive way to study the pathophysiology of the upper airway (UA). Recently, it has been used to diagnose partial or complete UA collapse in patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). In this study, we investigated whether fluid accumulation in the neck alters the properties of respiratory sounds in temporal and spectral domains and whether the respiratory sounds analysis can be used to monitor variations in the physiology of the UA, as rejected by UA resistance (R(UA)). We recorded respiratory sounds and R(UA) from 19 individuals while awake. We applied lower body positive pressure (LBPP) to shift fluid out of the legs and into the neck, which increased R(UA). We calculated first and second formants and energy of inspiratory sound segments. Our results show that during both control (no LBPP) and LBPP arms of the study, the extracted features were different for the sound segments corresponding to low and high R(UA). Also, the features were ...

The Liver scratch test is a method medical professionals use in ascertaining the location and size of a patients liver during a physical assessment. It is often used when other techniques, such as the hepatojugular reflux test either fail or are ineffective, most often due to abdominal distention or muscle tenseness. The Liver scratch test uses auscultation to detect the differences in sound transmission through the abdominal cavity over solid and hollow organs and spaces. After placing a stethoscope over the approximate location of a patients liver, a medical professional will then scratch the skin of the patients abdomen lightly, moving laterally along the liver border. When the liver is encountered, the scratching sound heard in the stethoscope will increase significantly. In this manner, the size and shape of a patients liver can be ascertained.

Bruit (English: /ˈbruːi/; from French, "noise"), or vascular murmur, is the abnormal sound generated by turbulent flow of blood in an artery due to either an area of partial obstruction; or a localized high rate of blood flow through an unobstructed artery. The bruit may be heard ("auscultated") by pressing a stethoscope to the skin over the turbulent flow and listening. Most bruits occur only in systole, so the bruit is intermittent and its frequency dependent on the heart rate. Anything increasing the blood flow velocity such as fever, anemia, or hyperthyroidism, can increase the amplitude of the bruit.

breath ss the sounds of air shifting with the tracheobronchial tree, listened to all through auscultation on the chest. You will discover 4 most important sorts: bronchial breath sounds are higher-pitched types heard Usually over the manubrium sterni but indicative of consolidation or compression when listened to in other places; bronchovesicular breath sounds are intermediate amongst bronchial and vesicular and so are typical on certain peripheral areas of the thorax but indicative of partial consolidation if listened to about a lung; cavernous breath sounds are abnormal types with a hollow resonance heard above a cavity inside a lung; and vesicular breath sounds are minimal-pitched ones heard over the traditional lung all through ventilation. Referred to as also respiratory sounds ...
She is placed on 10 L·min−1 oxygen by face mask and is transported to the hospital. On examination after the arrival at the ED, her vital signs are: heart rate 113 beats per minute and irregular, respiration rate 31 breaths per minute, blood pressure 85/45 mm Hg, and SaO2 86%. She appears to be in severe respiratory distress and is unable to speak more than three to four words in one breath. She is morbidly obese with an estimated weight of over 137 kg (300 pounds) and is 151 cm (5 feet) tall with a body mass index (BMI) 60 kg·m−2. Chest auscultation reveals faint breath sounds with crackles over the entire lung fields, a significant decrease in air entry in both bases combined with mild wheezing. Other findings include 1+ bilateral ankle edema, S4 heart sound, and a grade III/VI systolic murmur radiating to the axilla. Her jugular venous pressure (JVP) cannot be assessed because of her marked obesity and short neck. Her electrocardiogram on admission to the ED reveals a pattern consistent ...

By comparison, vesicular breathing (the sound you should hear over the lungs) has a rustling quality which builds up from the onset of inspiration to expiration, where it tails off such that it is not heard in the latter half of expiration. The important difference is that with vesicular breath sounds there is no gap between inspiration and expiration, Ive attempted to explain this below.. I think the concepts of bronchial and vesicular breathing are quite difficult to grasp, but I found it so much easier when I considered this alongside Mr Rs diagnoses, so I will begin with these.. Mr R has suffered from pulmonary oedema (secondary to his left heart failure, which is secondary to his pernicious anaemia) in the past, and I suspect that he was suffering from it when I examined him. The cyanosis I observed, and crepitations I heard on auscultation are consistent with this.. Furthermore, Mr R has been diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis (working as a coal miner and smoking 26 pack years are both ...

Explanation: Chest X-ray confirms diagnosis by revealing air or fluid in the pleural space. SaO2 values may initially decrease with a pneumothorax but typically return to normal within 24 hours. ABG studies may show hypoxemia, possibly with respiratory acidosis and hypercapnia but these are not necessarily related to a pneumothorax. Chest auscultation will determine overall lung status, but its difficult to determine if the chest has reexpanded sufficiently ...
History, physical examination and lung physiology. IPF has an insidious onset. It often presents with persistent dry cough associated with worsening breathlessness and progressive decline in ones exercise capacity. Hemoptysis (coughing up blood) is rare and if it occurs other causes of interstitial lung diseases, such as vasculitis and Iymphangioleiomyomatosis (LAM), should be considered. Most patients with IPF have inspiratory dry crackles ("velcro-type") on auscultation of the chest. Clubbing of the fingers occurs in about half the cases. More advanced cases may present with signs of pulmonary hypertension such as right ventricular heave, loud P2 and tricuspid regurgitation murmur. Pulmonary function tests (PFTs) typically will demonstrate a restrictive defect, with decreased FVC and TLC, associated with impaired diffusion capacity and often hypoxemia at rest or exercise.. The radiographic patterns of IPF. H. Bobby Nath, MD - Professor of Radiology Plain chest radiographs are seldom helpful ...
A 62 year old woman was referred to hospital by her general practitioner because of a few days history of progressive shortness of breath. She had associated fever but no cough or sputum production. Her medical history included rheumatoid arthritis, for which she had been taking methotrexate for the past 12 years.. On examination, she was visibly dyspnoeic, with low oxygen saturations. Her respiratory rate was 22 breaths/min, oxygen saturation was 90% on air, heart rate was 100 beats/min, blood pressure was 115/72 mm Hg, and her temperature was 37.4ºC. Chronic hand changes, consistent with rheumatoid arthritis, were noted. Bilateral widespread crackles were heard on auscultation of the chest.. Blood tests showed a white blood cell count of 8.8×109/L (reference range 4-10) and a C reactive protein of 1219 nmol/L (,47.6). Further blood tests, including antinuclear antibody (ANA) and extractable nuclear antigen (ENA), were negative. Chest radiography showed diffuse alveolar shadowing throughout ...
Clinical introduction An 88-year-old man, admitted to the emergency room (ER) after three episodes of syncope within 1 day, reported a precursory of syndrome of light-headedness with rapid palpitations that led to an abrupt loss of consciousness. After undergoing percutaneous and surgical revascularisation, he started complaining of chest and back discomfort for the past 20 years and searching for help from Chinese medicine, Fuzi. He had history of chronic renal failure and heart failure, but denied neither taking digitalis nor having family history related to sudden death.. On arrival, heart rate was 150 bpm and blood pressure (BP) by cuff was 91/81 mm Hg (non-invasive BP could not be accurately obtained during tachycardia) plus oedema on both lower extremities. There were diffuse crackles and indistinct heart sounds on auscultation.. The admission ECG was performed in the ER (figure 1). His serum creatinine was 139.7 mmol/L, serum K+ was 4.7 mmol/L, N-terminal of the prohormone brain ...

Animals with bacterial pneumonia usually have a history of a productive cough, fever, tachypnea, and respiratory distress. However, some animals (and particularly cats) present with more vague signs of illness, such as malaise, depression, anorexia, and weight loss. An early clue to the diagnosis of bacterial pneumonia is a change in the respiratory pattern. Parenchymal infection with alveolar flooding by inflammatory debris leads to restrictive lung disease, and a rapid shallow breathing pattern results. Thoracic auscultation is typically abnormal with loud or harsh lung sounds, and crackles can be variably detected throughout the lung fields. Absence of lung sounds in an area is suggestive of lung consolidation. A mucopurulent nasal discharge can be observed when animals cough respiratory secretions into the nasopharynx or have concurrent nasal infection. Fever may or not be present. These general rules are followed much more closely in dogs than in cats, in which bacterial pneumonia can ...
A lung sound diagnostic system for use in collecting, organizing and analyzing lung sounds associated with the inspiration(s) and expiration(s) of a patient. The system includes a plurality of transducers that may be placed at various sites around the patients chest. The microphones are coupled to signal processing circuitry and A/D converters which digitize the data and preferably provides the digital data to a computer station. A data collection and organization program, executing on the computer station, organizes and formats the data into a combination display for display or printing. The combinational display includes at least two display elements. In a first display element, the data is shown for both inspiration and expiration combined in a first time scale. In a second display element, the data for inspiration and expiration are shown individually in a second time scale that is time-expanded relative to the first time scale. The system may also include application programs for detecting
It is valuable to perform a pulsus paradoxous in this and other conditions. The pulsus paradoxus is inaptly named because it is actually an exaggeration of a normal phenomenon. To measure it, take a blood pressure with auscultation - when deflating the cuff slowly, you will hear Korotkoff sounds only on expiration beginning at a certain pressure. Note this pressure and continue - you will then hear the sounds throughout the respiratory cycle. The difference between those two pressures is the pulsus paradoxus. Many have suggested that this phenomenon occurs due to reduced pulmonary vascular resistance upon inspiration, increased venous inflow into the RA/RV, and then septal bowing into the LV impairing LV outflow. While this makes sense, it is not seen echocardiographically even during tamponade. Instead, the mechanism is thought to be related to the gradient of pressure in the pulmonary veins (mostly affected by the intrathoracic pressure) and the left atrium (mostly affected by pericardial ...
Helpful, trusted answers from doctors: Dr. Kim on can bruits change their sound as time passes: Bruits can change their sound depending on the degree of blockage. In the carotid arteries, for example, as a blockage is almost complete ( | 90%), the bruit actually goes away! this is why a bruit is not the best way to evaluate someone for carotid disease. An ultrasound is much more accurate!
I have read that the scratch test is only about 50% accurate for positive results. That is why a diagnosis looks at more than the test. There is a family history taken along with any other signs of allergy (has the child reacted to the specific food, have ezcema or asthma). A Rast test will also help the allergist with a diagnosis. When a scratch test is done there is also a positive and negative control test done too. Did the allergist not explain this to you? Its amazing how little info is passed on sometimes ...

A method of differentiating between OSA and CSA comprising: determining if chest motion above a chest motion threshold is present; determining if tracheal breath sound above a breath sounds threshold are present, classifying a state as OSA if the chest motion is above the threshold and the sounds are below the threshold; and classifying a state as CSA if both the chest motion and sounds are below their respective thresholds.
Goaded by his would-be publishers, Dr G has learned that surprisingly little is known about how doctors make diagnoses. Many of Dr Grumbles colleagues think that todays junior doctors are not as good as they were. Even the juniors themselves, worn down by MTAS and MMC, are beginning to believe this. It is nonsense. It is very difficult to recall what you once did not know. Experiential learning sinks in slowly. You carry it with you for ever and it is the key to diagnosis. Unlike some of his more arrogant colleagues, Dr Grumble can remember when as a junior doctor he would struggle to get to the nub of a patients problem when the consultant seemed to be able to score a hole in one without even trying. Dr Grumble did this himself the other day with a case of mitral stenosis. A few seconds auscultation and, despite the near-by vacuum cleaner, Dr G was able to describe the tell-tale murmur and even made a few comments about the pre-systolic accentuation.

There are several conflicting pieties here. The section where Oliver goes on about penitents seems to be an implicit slap upside the head of standard, "guilt ridden religion." The New Agers cheer! Yes! I dont have to be good; all I have to do is let my body love what it loves. The overt piety of this poem is nature as a form of salvation, but the covert piety of this poem is the natural (as in organic), self-love, choice culture of spiritual consumerism. This choice culture only has to love what it loves. It doesnt have to be good. It has to be a shopper. In point of fact, nature, in the later part of the poem "offers." Now thats a word dear to every consumers heart. I dont know if Oliver intended this piety to be there, but its there in spades.. Also, it harks back to an earlier Protestant piety: the rejection of good works in order to emphasize faith and grace-election. We are "elected" if only we let our bodies love what they love. So, in going against the piety of guilt and repentance, ...
Looking for online definition of auscultation in the Medical Dictionary? auscultation explanation free. What is auscultation? Meaning of auscultation medical term. What does auscultation mean?
Auscultation is the practice of listening, usually with a stethoscope, to the chest. Two basic sub-categories are 1) heart sounds (and murmurs) and 2) lung sounds. Auscultation simulators are an attempt to teach medical trainees to recognize what they hear through the stethoscope by providing examples of either actual or simulated sounds. Simple simulators just provide audio files. More elaborate simulators allow the user to move the stethoscope over different areas of the chest, provide video or animation of the patient to show venous, arterial, or precordial pulsations, and supplement bedside physical findings with laboratory data such as a phonocardiogram, pressure tracings, echocardiogram, electrocardiogram, and radiology/angiography.

In the current study, a non-invasive technique for systolic blood pressure (SBP) measurement based on the detection of photoplethysmographic (PPG) pulses during pressure-cuff deflation was compared to sphygmomanometry-the Korotkoff sounds technique. The PPG pulses disappear for cuff-pressures above the SBP value and reappear when the cuff-pressure decreases below the SBP value. One hundred and twenty examinations were performed on forty subjects. In 97 examinations the two methods differed by less than 3 mmHg. In nine examinations the SBP value measured by PPG was higher than that measured by sphygmomanometry by 5 mmHg or more. In only one examination the former was lower by 5 mmHg or more than the latter. The appearance of either the PPG pulses or the Korotkoff sounds assures that the artery under the cuff is open during systolic peak pressure. In the nine examinations mentioned above the PPG pulses were observed while Korotkoff sounds were not detected, despite the open artery during systole. In these
A 70 year old man presents to his general practitioner with a four week history of breathlessness on exertion. He currently takes bendroflumethiazide 2.5 mg daily for hypertension and uses inhalers for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. He has no history of cardiac disease. His brother had a myocardial infarction in his 70s. The patient used to smoke 20 cigarettes a day but gave up smoking two years ago; he denied alcohol excess. On examination, his blood pressure was 150/95 mm Hg with a pulse of 90 beats/min. Heart sounds were normal and, on chest auscultation, he had bibasal inspiratory crepitations and scattered wheeze. His jugular venous pressure was not visible and he had mild bilateral ankle oedema. ...
For patients suffering from respiratory diseases, an intelligent remote health monitoring system was proposed by Mesh Bees, Pondicherry Engineering College. The AndroLung app records breath sounds and sends the same to a cloud for diagnosis. Any audible noises associated with breathing as occasionally, wheezing or the gurgling caused by secretions in large airways are audible to the "naked" ear. Lung sounds, also called respiratory sounds or breath sounds, can be auscultated across the anterior and posterior chest walls with a stethoscope. Adventitious lung sounds are referenced as crackles (rales), wheezes (rhonchi), stridor and pleural rubs as well as voiced sounds that include egophony, bronchophony and whispered pectoriloquy. Descriptions and audio recordings for all of these sounds are available with several algorithms and as reference in medical guides. A prescription approval, modification and further course of treatment is advised based on the same ...

Symptomatic infants with wheeze or ruttles were recruited from paediatric respiratory clinics, from inpatients admitted with acute viral induced respiratory illness, or from infants with ongoing noisy breathing in the community. Infants with bronchiolitis were not included. Approval for the study was obtained from the local ethics committee and informed consent was obtained from the infants parents.. Infants for entry into the study were carefully selected by one of the investigators (MLE) and confirmed using breath sounds analysis by a second investigator (HEE). Only infants with clear characteristics of either wheeze or ruttles were selected as we wished only to include typical examples for the purpose of defining the response to ipratropium bromide. Infants with any other lung sounds or a combination of sounds were excluded from the study.. In total, 13 babies were selected: seven with wheeze (four boys, three girls; age range 7-10 months) and six with ruttles (two boys, four girls; age ...

Holmes tells us in The Sign of Four that detection involves nothing more than three skills: observation, deduction, and knowledge. Let us consider what he means when faced with, for example, a complaint of chest pain.. Observation: we perceive a middle-aged male, alert and seated upright, rubbing at his sternum with a pained expression. His skin is slightly pale, his respiratory rate is slightly elevated, and he is hypertensive. He complains of "tight" 4/10 chest pain whenever he breathes. Upon auscultation we detect diffuse, bilateral, biphasic wheezing. We note a history of coronary artery disease, diabetes, and COPD.. Knowledge: Chest pain in adults indicates a high risk for acute coronary syndromes. Pallor, tachypnea, and hypertension are consistent with this diagnosis. Sharp, mild, pleuritic pain is not, nor is wheezing, all of which are more consistent with a primarily respiratory etiology. But we also know that MI often presents atypically, particularly in diabetics.. Deduction: Both ...

To determine whether the use of an electronic, sensor based stethoscope affects the cardiac auscultation skills of undergraduate medical students. Forty eight third year medical students were randomized to use either an electronic stethoscope, or a conventional acoustic stethoscope during clinical auscultation training. After a training period of four months, cardiac auscultation skills were evaluated using four patients with different cardiac murmurs. Two experienced cardiologists determined correct answers. The students completed a questionnaire for each patient. The thirteen questions were weighted according to their relative importance, and a correct answer was credited from one to six points. No difference in mean score was found between the two groups (p = 0.65). Grading and characterisation of murmurs and, if present, report of non existing murmurs were also rated. None of these yielded any significant differences between the groups. Whether an electronic or a conventional stethoscope was used
Have you been told you have diseased or clogged carotid arteries (carotid stenosis)? Are you nervous about what this may mean in terms of your risk of stroke? Here are some answers to commonly asked questions regarding carotid artery disease.. What are the carotid arteries?. Carotid arteries are the two main blood vessels that supply most of your brain with blood.. What is a carotid bruit and does it definitely mean that the carotid is blocked?. A carotid bruit is a swooshing sound heard during a physical exam in which the physician listens to the sound of blood flow through the neck. When blood passes through a narrowing channel, it will give a very distinctive sound when heard through a stethoscope. Approximately 30 percent of patients with a carotid bruit will have a significant carotid blockage. However, carotid bruits are often associated with the presence of other atherosclerotic heart disease as well as other cardiovascular problems.. How is a carotid bruit assessed by my ...
A 31-year-old man, with no significant medical history, developed sudden onset central chest pain radiating across the upper chest wall and into the neck following sternutation (sneezing). There had been a preceding history of cocaine abuse by insufflation. On clinical examination, there was ulcerated nasal septum, palpable crepitus in the supraclavicular fossae, normal heart sounds and equal air entry to both lungs on auscultation.. His chest radiograph demonstrated bilateral supraclavicular surgical emphysema and pneumomediastinum (figure 1 … ...
BACKGROUND: Children who suffer from recurrent wheezy episodes are often promptly classified as asthmatic. The aim of this study was to evaluate a population of mild wheezy children with repeatedly normal spirometric tests at rest for atopy, bronchial hyperresponsiveness, and peak expiratory flow variability. METHODS: Thirty nine children aged 6-16 years with 1-12 wheezy attacks during the previous year were recruited from a community paediatric primary health care clinic serving an urban Israeli population. The conditions for inclusion were a physician-diagnosed wheeze on auscultation and normal spirometric tests at rest on at least three occasions. Evaluation included skin prick tests for atopy and a physician-completed questionnaire. In addition, two tests of bronchial hyperresponsiveness (BHR) were performed--namely, exercise-induced bronchospasm and inhaled methacholine hyperresponsiveness--as well as diurnal variability of peak expiratory flow (PV). RESULTS: One or more tests of BHR/PV ...
AVVI is a degenerative disease that damages heart valve leaflets as it progresses. This damage prevents heart valves from closing properly, allowing blood to leak backward into the atrium. This leakage eventually results in a heart murmur detectable via auscultation with a stethoscope. Valve leakage impairs cardiac function and circulation, ultimately leading to congestive heart failure (CHF).. Estimates indicate that 10% of all dogs seen in primary care veterinary practices have heart disease. As dogs age, the prevalence of heart disease reaches more than 60%.. AVVI, the most frequent cause of CHF in dogs, is a slowly progressing disease. The prevalence of this disease gradually increases with age. AVVI affects:. ...
For cats, the majority of systolic murmurs are attributable to dynamic right ventricular outflow tract obstruction (DROVOTO) or systolic anterior motion (SAM) of the mitral valve with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM). The mechanism by which these murmurs are generated precludes their localization at the base or apex. Moreover, the small feline heart makes isolation of a murmur to the apex or base challenging even for those cats with fixed anatomical defects. As such, heart murmurs in cats are generally described as being located on the left or right parasternum or sternum.. Cardiac Auscultation Technique in Dogs and Cats. 1. Place palms over the left and right thorax to identify if a thrill is present.. 2. Use palms to locate the apex beat (the place where the heartbeat feels strongest, on the left thoracic wall).. 3. Place the diaphragm of the stethoscope over the apex beat and listen.. 4. Count the heart rate.. 5. Evaluate heart rhythm: regular, regularly irregular, irregularly ...
Within the context of the ISO/IEEE 11073 family of standards for device communication, this standard establishes a normative definition of the communication between personal telehealth electronic stethoscope devices and managers (e.g. cell phones, personal computers, personal health appliances, set top boxes) in a manner that enables plug-and-play interoperability. It leverages appropriate portions of existing standards including ISO/IEEE 11073 terminology, information models, application profile standards, and transport standards. It specifies the use of specific term codes, formats, and behaviors in telehealth environments restricting optionality in base frameworks in favor of interoperability. This standard defines a common core of communication functionality for personal telehealth electronic stethoscopes. In this context, electronic stethoscopes are defined as electrically amplified devices used to capture and digitally communicate the sounds associated with the heart, arteries, and veins and other
This study is an epidemiological observational cross-sectional study designed to estimate the prevalence of echocardiographically confirmed RHD in school children from 5-14 years of age in Fiji. The study will be conducted in the Central Division of Fiji within a selection of up to16 primary schools located in the Korovou/Tailevu and Rewa/Nausori sub-divisions. School children will be enrolled after informed consent has been obtained. A standard cardiac examination (auscultation) will be performed as part of the routine annual health check by both school nurses, who have attended a training workshop, and by a paediatrician. All children with or without murmur will have a screening echocardiogram performed at a subsequent visit. Children found to have possible, probable or definite RHD or other cardiac pathology on the screening echocardiogram, will have a full echocardiogram performed by the echocardiography technician at the time of the second study visit. They will all also be referred to a ...
