    Not sure why all the attitude towards the OP, but NarcoticJunkie, you need to know what "A-B-C"s are ASAP!!!

    Well maybe's it's a "Commonweath country" thing, because here in Australia, we definitely assess air entry as decreased, bilateral etc. I've been a critical care RN for 10 years and always been taught that way. We still use crackles, wheeze etc, but usually write "decreased AE L) LL" for reduced breath sounds in the left lower lobe.

    In the UK we also assess "air entry", can be bilateral, decreased, absent and if there are added sounds then crackles, wheeze etc.
