Welcome to our website's lung sounds audio page. There are several ways to listen to our lung sounds audio recordings. Our reference guide is designed to provide quick access to abnormal sounds, with summary listening tips, audio examples and waveforms. For a little more explanation, use our two lung auscultation courses. We also have Repetition Training pages for memorizing each type of lung sound audio.
