The Easy Auscultation Sound Builder is a method of decomposing heart sounds into it key components: the first heart sound (S1), systole, the second heart sound (S2) and diastole/third/fourth heart sounds. Students can learn complex heart sounds by beginning with S1, adding S2, then systolic sounds and then diastolic sounds.

We now offer over 45 heart sound lessons with Sound Builder. Our lessons include audio recordings of simulated and actual patients, a virtual manikin, cardiac animation and dynamic waveform. A course quiz is also available.

The Easy Auscultation website has over 80 heart and lung sound lessons. These multimedia lessons represent one of the most comprehensive sets of online auscultation materials available. Each lesson can be viewed with a PC/Mac browser, iPad or iPhone.

Basics of Lung Sounds
The goal of this basic course in lung sounds is to improve the student’s observational skills. Thus we focus on describing important lung sounds and in providing recordings of each. Some students find that waveform tracings aid in learning each lung sounds. So we have included waveforms with each lung sound lesson. Observing the loudness, pitch and character of breath sounds can be useful in identifying pulmonary disorders. In this short course, we present adventitious sounds, which are abnormal sounds, such as crackles, wheezes, and rhonchi. Bronchial breath sounds are slightly louder, harsher, and higher pitched and can be significant. Vesicular breath sounds are the normal sounds heard over most lung fields.

Lesson List
1 Normal Vesicular;
2 Fine Crackles;
3 Coarse Crackles;
4 Wheeze;
5 Rhonchi;
6 Bronchial;
7 Pleural Rubs.
