The goal of this basic course in lung sounds is to improve auscultation observational skills. We focus on describing important breath sounds and in providing recordings of each. Many students find that waveform tracings aid in learning lung sounds; we have included dynamic (moving cursor) waveforms with each lesson. The anatomy pages use illustrations to reveal an example of each lung sound (anatomy not yet available on smartphones).

How To Use Course Lessons
Please use good quality headphones or earphones.
Each lesson consists of multiple pages: text description with audio
recording and dynamic waveform pages. Most lessons include a cardiac or lung
animation as well. To navigate pages within a lesson, use the navigation bar
which will appear on each lesson page.
After completing a lesson, use the blue arrows to view the next lesson. Lessons can
also be accessed by using the Table of Contents found in the left margin.
