These sounds can be rapidly accessed from the software?s opening page. Each sound is first described followed by the sound?s recording. These lung sounds are played and visualized simultaneously, which allows one to quickly learn to associate abnormal lung sounds with their characteristic visual patterns. Visual Objective Aid for Auscultation Time amplitude plots of lung sounds are presented in two ways: expanded or unexpanded. The unexpanded method is similar to a phonocardiogram time amplitude display. This allows an overall view of the acoustic characteristics in real time. In the time expanded analysis the time or x-axis is stretched out so that details of the acoustic phenomena can be examined more carefully.
