Abstract

Lung sounds and their relation with the pulmonary pathology make their accurate interpretation crucial. The traditional method of auscultation with the stethoscope is rather subjective and requires long experience. For the development of advanced detection algorithms of pathological lung sounds a large number of validated lung sound recordings are needed. In contrast to existing commercial lung sound CDs we compiled a database which contains many cases with typical auscultation findings and findings with difficult evaluation. A novelty is the combination between auscultation results and lung function parameters.
