Gushing with noise, as water from a bottle. (F.) Gargouillement, same etymon as gargle. The rhonchus or rale heard on auscultation when there is a cavity in the lungs containing pus. It is the 'cavernous rattle or rhonchus,' Rale caverneux. The size of the bubbles heard varies, and hence the rhonchus has been called cavernous and cavernulous, (F.) Rale cavernuleux. If the cavern be large, this rale will nearly resemble the gurgling of a bottle (glouglou d'une bouteille;) if, on the contrary, the cavern be small, it will not differ from the rale muqueux.
