Abstract

In chest percussion the marginal distance is the distance between the percussion sound limit of the chest wall and that of the lungs (see V.B. 41, abst. 1335; 42, abst. 1976). Normally it measures 40-65 mm in the horse. Application of cold water or camphor ointment to the skin of the neck increased ...

Abstract

In a series of observations on horses, transition from rest to excitement was accompanied both by diminution in the circumference of the thorax and by extension of the area over which lung percussion sounds were audible. The same changes could be produced in horses at rest by i/v injection of 0.2...

Abstract

In percussion of the chest, the distance between the sound limits of the lung and thoracic wall (the marginal distance) did not vary greatly in healthy horses. It was increased by the following factors: increase of abdominal pressure (through coughing, urination or defaecation), trauma, s/c...
