Question chest/heart

during the non cardiac i have to auscultate the heart both in the sitting and supine position or is supine enough?
also im confused, in the chest and heart examination, what sequence should i use?
patient sitting...examine the back of the chest then front then heart then supine for the heart again...or should the patient be supine for anterior chest? but that way he would be sitting then supine then sitting then supine just confused
