An assortment of pulmonary physicians at various levels of expertise and computer literacy tested Learning Lung Sounds from Stethographics, Inc for this review.

The product is delivered on a self launching CD-ROM. Once the CD is placed in the drive, the product launches automatically to a home page with easy and intuitive navigation. No downloads or installations were required on the five different computers it was tested on, which were sound card enabled, Pentium 3 PCs with Windows 95, 98, Me, XP, 2000, and NT. The instructions are clear but minimal and could provide more depth for different types of student user on how to derive maximal benefit from the CD. The course is clearly divided into four sections: "Introduction," "Common Lung Sounds," "Sound Patterns," and "Cases."
