Example text

When the patient says the vowel “E,” the resulting sound through consolidated lung has a nasal “A” quality. This E-to-A change is termed egophony. All these findings are variations on the same theme—an altered transmission of sound through airless lung—and basically have the same significance. Two qualifications are important in interpreting the quality of breath sounds. First, normal transmission of sound depends on patency of the airway. If a relatively large bronchus is occluded, such as by tumor, secretions, or a foreign body, airflow into that region of lung is diminished or absent, and the examiner hears decreased or absent breath sounds over the affected area.

The surgeon uses the video image as a guide for manipulating the instruments to obtain a biopsy sample of peripheral lung tissue or to remove a peripheral lung nodule. Finally, fluid in the pleural space is frequently sampled in the evaluation of a patient with a pleural effusion. A small needle is inserted through the chest wall and into the pleural space, and fluid is withdrawn. The fluid can be examined for malignant cells and microorganisms. Chemical analysis of the fluid (see Chapter 15) often provides additional useful diagnostic information.
