Fortunately, auscultation of crepitations
in phase with the cardiac cycle (Hamman's sign) and subcutaneous swelling and crepitus are specific diagnostic signs.

Physical examination might reveal signs of crepitation
in case of osteoarthritis or fracture, increased laxity 'Ortolani signs' indicative of hip dysplasia and limb shortening in case of luxation.
c) Clinical signs like tachypnoea, reduced chest movements, dull percussion note, bronchial breath sounds, increased vocal fremitus and vocal resonance and crepitations

In addition to the customary auscultation of the lungs, careful palpation of the ribs looking for evidence of crepitation
would probably represent an adequate initial screening measure to rule out rib fracture.
