Acronym GBAE used in Physical Exam documentation

    Default Acronym GBAE used in Physical Exam documentation
    Exam Training Packages
    I am reviewing a record for Infectious Disease and noticed under physical exam - GBAE and was wondering if anyone knows what this stands for?

    I am thinking it is relative to either a skin or lung exam, next to GBAE it looks like it says, no crackles.

    A rash is mentioned in the HPI so it may be linked to the skin.

    Thanks,

    It is certainly NOT related to SKIN rash.

    It stands for "Good bilateral air entry" (GBAE) commonly used acronym in LUNG Physical Examination.
    Usually PE report reads: LUNGS: GBAE, no adventitious sounds.
