Lung Sounds

July 1, 2008

It has always been difficult for me to distinguish the different types of lung sounds. So, I started collectiong information and soon I will try to update this post. Until that time I want to present two websites where you can listen and get the idea of the lung sounds. Click on the pictures below:

    The SQUACK sound is very particular!

    @Alberto: do you think that this sound is important for the steps?
    To be honest with you this is the first time I’ve heard about squawks. See what I found on BMJ: Squawks are short inspiratory wheezes that have been described in hypersensitivity pneumonitis and other fibrotic disorders. Little attention has been paid to the fact that they also occur in patients with pneumonia. In the course of studying the correlation of automated lung sound analysis with disease states in patients at a community teaching hospital, we noticed that squawks appeared to be more common in patients with pneumonia than we expected.

    Is it the same sound you talking about?
