Shifted `dull' note to elicit hydropneumothorax, may not exclude simple moderate effusion. Here the emphasis should be on "Shifting Hyper-resonant note" on percussion. It is quite easy to distinguish normal 'relsonant' lung percussion from 'hyper-resonant' note of pneumothorax. In hydro-pneumothorax, the shift is between dull (stony) note of fluid, from latter 'hyper-resonant note' of air in pleural sac.
