Lecture Overview

This concise but informative presentation will remind you just where to place the stethoscope on the chest when conducting a respiratory assessment. Why should we listen above the clavicle? What does a tracheal breath sound versus a peripheral breath sound, sound like? Learn all this and more in this fascinating refresher.

Presenter keeps it clinically simple and revises those simple key areas you forget when not doing it all the time. Knowledge base was excellent and pitched appropriately. Have vowed other sessions presented by him and enjoyed them all gaining a lot from each.
