How often do the physicians auscultate patients? What does a physician hear during auscultation? Do all physicians hear the same thing? How successful are paediatricians in recognising abnormal sounds when compared to pulmonologists?
The StethoMe team, in collaboration with Prof. Anna Bręborowicz and Dr. Paweł Kleka, elaborated a publication answering these and other questions: The accuracy of lung auscultation in the practice of physicians and medical students.
