Respiratory system examination revealed Tachypnoea, accessory muscles of respiration active, breath sounds diminished in right infra-axillary
and infra-scapular areas.
In lower respiratory tract, trachea was slightly shifted to right side, breath sounds were absent on left infra-axillary
, infrascapular, interscapular, and right infrascapular areas.
We recommend that the right-sided chest piece be situated laterally in the infra-axillary
area to minimise the chance of tracheal breath sounds being mistaken for right-sided ventilation.
Chest examination revealed decreased movements on left side in inframammary, infra-axillary
, and infrascapular areas.
