PHIL Image 13516
 
ID#:13516
Description:This image depicts a female clinician using a stethoscope she’d placed upon a male patient’s back, in order to perform a thoracic auscultation.

The stethoscope enables the physician to hear sounds within a patient’s body, in this case, his chest including breath sounds produced as air enters and exits the lungs, and heart, or cardiac sounds produced as the heart beats, forcing blood through the heart and blood vessels. The trained ear of the healthcare professional enables her to distinguish between what one would hear under normal circumstances, and what might be heard under abnormal circumstances, possibly involving pathologic processes including heart valve abnormalities, abnormal heart rhythms, i.e., arrhythmias, and excessive fluid within the lungs, as might be found in the case of pneumonia, or bronchitis.
