Stethascope

Really odd question!

What can be heard when you listen to someones chest through a stethascope?

What does a normal chest sound like?

What does a non wheeze chest sound like?

What does a wheeze chest sound like?

What does a squeaky chest sound like?

What does a silent chest sound like?

What other things can you hear through a stethascope?

Just read a post and it got me curious.

  • Normal-U normally her a whoosh for air going in and out. no other sounds should be heard.

    Wheeze- a squeak can be heard. usually on the breath out for asthmatics.

    Silent - no noise usually heard this may include the normal woosh with breathing.

    tight- sounds like bending cardboard as the person breaths.

    These are not medical description but used to describe sounds for student nurses.
