Auscultation is the action of listening to sounds from the heart and lungs with a stethoscope. As a student you will need to understand the sounds for your assessment and clinicals. I hope this helps.

Thank you! My nursing skills instructor had told me I can find respiratory auscultation samples online and I searched and searched and could not find any from a reputable source. I had a question though. I am only 3 weeks into my program so we have only gone over the basics of vital signs. For our sim lab test we have to auscultate the 6 anterior locations and the 6 posterior locations. I am okay with the locations, but I am just not sure that congested sounds like as well as what labored sounds like. Which of these sounds would best describe those two auscultations if any?

Sorry if my medical terminology isnt up to par, like I said only 3 weeks in!!

This was really helpful but the first three I could not hear on my computer. What website did you get this from? Maybe I can access those better through that?
