In order to perform the long-term monitoring of cardiac activity (in both adults and fetuses during their intrauterine growth), it is more preferable to record phonocardiograms within a low-frequency band (40-90 Hz), which allows avoiding the overlapping of breath sounds
with heart sounds down to the limit.
analysis as a surrogate for gas exchange measurement of ventilatory and respiratory compensation thresholds.
Spectral analysis of the respiratory signals indicated that variation in the average power of the tracheal breath sounds
at different positions was a characteristic feature that discriminated the OSA and control groups.

There was dullness, soft breath sounds
and inspiratory crackles in the left base posteriorly.
Physical examination revealed diminished breath sounds
on the lower right side with chest retraction, and abdominal movement showed a paradoxical pattern.
By this be meant that she had little cough, had no difficulty breathing and on exam her breath sounds
were equal in both lungs and did not include wheezes or crackles.
The patient was fully conscious and normotensive; breath sounds
were decreased on the left.
The breath sounds
in the right upper lung were decreased.
In the emergency department, she displayed decreased breath sounds
and crackles on the left side.
The presentation of this form of large-bowel obstruction is similar to other causes, but there may be decreased breath sounds
on the affected side and, rarely, bowel sounds may be audible in the chest.
Respiratory: Breath sounds
are clear throughout the lung fields; symmetrical expansion of the chest wall.
Awareness of breathing is further emphasized through a three- to five-minute breath improvisation that invites participants to create a playful, collective piece using only breath sounds
Signs and symptoms suggestive of CAP include shortness of breath, fever, chills, cough, tachypnea and abnormal breath sounds
Of the remaining 67 patients for whom clinical data were available, signs and symptoms of infection with the new virus included fever, cough, runny nose, rapid breathing, abnormal breath sounds
, and hypoxia; 35 had an underlying condition such as prematurity (19 patients).
