Heart Sounds - Extended
Examination of patients for carotid artery bruit or pulmonary arterial hypertension requires additional auscultation
techniques and knowledge. Additional lessons, cases and quizzes for these topics are available for free from a cooperative website (PracticalClinicalSkills.com):
Ausculation of Lung Sounds
Lung sounds are auscultated for sounds such as wheezes, rhonchi and crackles (rales). Some physicians auscultate voiced sounds, which can indicate specific areas of the lungs which are consolidated. Our auscultation guide provides quick access to normal, voiced and adventitious lung sounds with audio recordings, listening tips and a waveforms. The two lung sounds courses cover basic and intermediate levels of adventitious lung sounds and voiced sounds.

Lung Sounds/Breath Sounds Reference Guide
As an extension of our lung sounds courses, we can recommend a series of interactive case studies in respiratory care, titled "Pulmonary Problem Solving". These cases are presented by PracticalClinicalSkills.com:
