Wheezing Lung Sounds Lessons

Two lessons on wheezing sounds are part of our Basics of Lung Sounds course. We suggest taking the full course (about 15-20 minutes), but the lesson can be used without the full course. Our intermediate lung sounds course has additional types of wheezes: expiratory, monophonic and polyphonic.
