WHAT DOES RHONCHUS MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Rhonchi

Rhonchi is a coarse rattling respiratory sound somewhat like snoring, usually caused by secretion in bronchial airways. Rhonchi is the plural form of the singular word rhonchus. Since the mid-1990s, it has no longer been considered appropriate terminology in auscultation of the thorax as there has been much confusion in the published literature which confuses this between crepitations and wheezes, so the exact nature of this term is unclear. Similarly rales are no longer used in much of Europe, North America and Australia with regard to description of auscultatory findings. More appropriate terms for auscultation of the thorax are respiratory sounds, and adventitious sounds.

Definition of rhonchus in the English dictionary

The definition of rhonchus in the dictionary is a rattling or whistling respiratory sound resembling snoring, caused by secretions in the trachea or bronchi.
