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).

Pulmonary Problem Solving
Cases in pulmonary problem solving that integrate clinical skills training with respiratory care. This course is presented by the Practical Clinical Skills website.
As a supplement to our courses and reference guides, we provide auscultation repetition training. This training is available using courses or quick lessons.
Respiratory Guide Website
If you are specialized in respiratory care, we recommend the
Respiratory.Guide website for
lung sounds, EKG and taking blood pressure training.
Some users prefer to use these quick links to concise information and audio recordings for both normal and adventitious sounds.
