Which of the following breath sounds would be expected during auscultation of a wet-drowning victim?

  1. Bronchovesicular
  2. Vesicular
  3. Crackles
  4. Friction rub
    a. 1
    b. 3
    c. 2, 4
    d. 1, 2, 3


Crackles are likely to be heard over the lung fields of a wet-drowning victim because of the water within the airways and lungs.


Please could you help me with another one. Thank you
