On auscultation, affected dog revealed severally congested lung with moist rales
. During examination, dog showed resistance to dorsal recumbency and weakness on forelimbs.
An independent experienced doctor who was blinded to any clinical information (including the LUS and CXR) recorded moist rales before treatment and on the day of discharge.
All results of clinical research mentioned above, including LUS CXR and moist rales, were only used for clinical research and blinded to clinical doctors.
(1) Typical symptoms (including cough, sputum, and chest tightness) were completely relieved; (2) abnormal physical signs, including cyanosis and moist rales, vanished completely; and (3) the patients received the standard treatment for HAPE for at least 48 hours.
The diagnostic accuracy of the LUS, CXR, and moist rales before treatment for the diagnosis of HAPE was calculated.
Moist rales were recorded in only 102 HAPE patients before treatment.
Physical examination results at the time of admission showed a body temperature of 37.8[degrees]C, tachypnea, bilateral jugular venous engorgement, weak bilateral lower lung respiratory sounds without dry or moist rales
, a laterally extended heart border, a heart rate of 122 beats/min with regular rhythm, and distant heart sounds, but without pathologic murmur in the auscultatory valve areas.
Physical examination demonstrated, burnt vestibular vibrissa in all twenty patients, and fine moist rales on lung examination in 12 patients (60%).
This finding occurred when only 60% of the patients were found to have fine moist rales on chest examination and 75% of patients had computed tomography examinations demonstrating pulmonary exudative changes.
Clinical signs: The mycoplasma infected birds were dull, depressed with ruffled feather, coughing and sneezing with nasal discharges, open mouth breathing with moist rales
and typical voices were recorded.
Lung auscultation revealed adventitious sound mainly crackles (moist rales
) in 16 calves whereas 7 calves showed abnormal respiratory noise like sneezing and respiratory grunts.
Auscultation revealed moist rales
, suggestive of aspiratory pneumonia.
