Auscultated Heart and Lung Sounds
This website offers lessons on understanding auscultated
heart, lung, bowel and abdominal sounds. Our interactive lessons use audio recordings (real and simulated), waveforms, anatomical animations and text to explain each sound.
Auscultated: past tense of auscultation. Auscultation is the act of observing body sounds, usually with a stethoscope. MDs and nurses auscultate the heart and lungs as well as carotid arteries and the abdomen.
