Default auscultate

A 41-year-old truck driver comes into the urgent care department after waking up with a fever of 102 F. He complains of pain in his chest, chills and a cough productive of thick sputum. Physical exam reveals dullness to percussion and increased vocal tactile fremitus. CXR demonstrates lobar consolidation of the left superior lobe of the lung. If the physician wants to auscultate the site of the infection from the posterior aspect, he needs to place his stethoscope immediately above which rib?
  • A. 5th rib
  • B. 6th rib
  • C. 3rd rib
  • D. 2nd rib
  • E. 4th rib
