"Rale" in context

Rale is an abnormal breath sound heard while listening to lungs with a stethoscope. It's usually caused by abnormal accumulation of fluid in the lungs, which causes an extra vibration in the airways. The sound that doctors and nurses hear when checking for rales can be bubbling, wet, or rattling. Bronchitis, heart failure, and other medical conditions can cause rales. They can become more prominent when a person is lying down, as this will result in fluid gravitating towards the lower parts of the lungs. However, it's important to note that many people with healthy lungs and no underlying medical conditions can experience rales.
