Breath Sounds Audio Page


Introduction

Welcome to our website's breath sounds audio training page. Our breath sounds auscultation courses are an ideal entry point for new learners because they offer text lessons, audio recordings, waveforms and other learning tools. Our reference library pages are a quick way to look up sounds, review listening tips, hear audio examples and see waveforms. Try the new Pulmonary Problem Solving cases after you have mastered our breath sounds.



Breath Sounds Audio Reference Guide

Our reference guide provides quick access to normal, voiced and adventitious sounds. The guide includes audio recordings, listening tips and a waveforms.

Breath Sounds Audio Lessons

Learn breath sounds by taking our free courses These courses cover basic and intermediate levels of adventitious breath sounds and voiced breath sounds. Use the table of contents below to review and access a course or lesson.



Basics of Lung Sounds
The goal of this basic course in lung sounds is to improve auscultation observational skills. We focus on describing important breath sounds and in providing recordings of each. Many students find that waveform tracings aid in learning lung sounds; we have included dynamic (moving cursor) waveforms with each lesson. The anatomy pages use illustrations to reveal an example of each lung sound (anatomy not yet available on smartphones).

Intermediate Lung Sounds
The goal of this intermediate course is to expand your observational skills when auscultating breath sounds. The course lessons include voiced sounds: bronchophony, egophony and whispered pectoriloquy. We also provide auscultation lessons on several types of wheezes, crackles and stridor. Each of these lung sound lessons includes audio, text and dynamic waveform. The anatomy pages use illustrations to reveal an example of each lung sound (anatomy not yet available on smartphones).
