Lesson

Bronchovesicular breath sounds are considered a hallmark of healthy lungs when auscultated in the mid-chest and posterior chest area between the scapula. They have an inspiratory to expiratory ratio (I:E) equal to 1:1. Bronchovesicular sounds are normal breathings heard in the mid-chest or posterior chest regions between the scapulae. The pitch is a combination of bronchial and vesicular components.
