Nursing Skill Cystic Fibrosis

Percussion involves tapping body parts with fingers, fists, or small instruments to vibrate underlying tissues and evaluate size, location, tenderness,

understanding of the effect of various densities on sound can help you locate organs or masses, find their edges, and estimate their size.
