CSU AUSCULTATION LIBRARY

BREATH SOUNDS BOVINE EQUINE CANINE FELINE OTHER SPECIES LINKS

Welcome to the Colorado State University Veterinary Auscultation Library.

This site contains a collection of auscultation sounds from normal and diseased animals.  The site is divided into separate pages for the common veterinary species.  Within each species page, the content is organized by organ system including cardiac, respiratory, and abdominal auscultation.  Additional case information, video, and graphics are included when available for the cases.

Headphones are recommended for getting the best acoustical clarity from these recordings.

As with many projects, this one is under development.  We are making efforts to improve sound quality but you will notice that there is considerable background noise in some of the recordings (I particularly like the barn swallows in the background of several bovine cases).  We will strive to minimize these problems and make the best recordings that we can.

A number of clinicians and technicians at the CSU Veterinary Teaching Hospital have contributed case material for the development of this site.  It is their collaboration and continued support that makes this Auscultation Library a continuing success.
