Arrow Murmurs and lung sounds

You will have few questions maybe not more than 5 in the whole exam.

You will have one of two types:

Cardiac sounds and murmurs
Pulmonary breath sounds and crackles and wheezes

No other auscultatory findings such as carotid bruits or intestinal sounds will be there in the exam.

You may listen to heart sounds on the exam, but be prepared for the answers to have nothing to do with the heart sound per say. Its more of what the neck is doing in the answer
