what does unilateral breath sound mean?

1 Answer:

Hello Santi, thanks for the question for HealthReplies.com

Breath sounds on lung examination should be heard on both sides of the lung (bilateral). Unilateral breath sounds mean breath sounds are only heard on one side of the lung or there is a diminished or absent breath sound on one side of the lung. Breath sounds that disappear on one side of the lung can be caused by many possibilities, including:

blockage in one of the pulmonary bronchi (can be due to choking on foreign objects, tumors, etc.)
infection on one side of the lung
pneumothorax on one side of the lung
Extensive pleural effusion on one side of the lung
in people who are intubated (using a breathing tube) can indicate a breath tube that goes too deep to only one branch of the bronchus


That's all the information from me, I hope it's enough to answer
