Lung auscultation

Prepared in cooperation with StethoMe. The course will comprehensively prepare you to use a doctor's attribute - the stethoscope.


What will you get from learning with Medu’s Lung auscultation course?

  • a solid repetition of the most important information on respiratory physiology - who has not forgotten some information over the years?
  • you will understand why particular respiratory phenomena occur
  • you will learn the correct management of respiratory sounds - are you sure you know what a patient with severe obstruction presents by auscultation?
  • nearly 400 recordings from real patients, allowing you to hear breath sounds in their "natural environment"
  • the ability to auscultate the patient correctly - a skill that will be useful not only during your studies, but also in your first independent moments at work ;)
Did you know that only 24.1% of students recognise breath sounds? Interestingly, even for pulmonologists, the percentage of correct answers is 36.5%.[source]

Do I need a stethoscope to learn with Medu?

No. In the app you will find the real-patients recording, which will play directly from your smartphone. Keep in mind that the best sound quality will be provided by listening the recording through headphones - this way you will easily recognise respiratory sounds.

Where do the recordings included in the course come from?

All recordings included in the course are recorded using our partner’s - StethoMe - intelligent stethoscope. All respiratory sounds were analyzed by AI algorithms and are included in the app along with a spectrogram and tags of the detected phenomena.

Can I be sure that Medu content is content-wise correct?

All content has been consulted by medical specialists in a given field and created with their participation. Thus we can guarantee our courses are not only substantively correct, but also in line with clinical practice.
