This wall chart, 13 by 17 inches in size, is a handy outline for chest clinics. It lists the apparatus needed for lung and throat examinations and then describes the position of the patient. There is a brief description of abnormalities observed on inspection, detection of abnormalities on palpation, sounds on percussion, and auscultatory sounds. In the center of the chart is presented a code of markings for the chest specialist, including auscultation and percussion signs. The chart is a useful guide for training physicians in the systematic and thorough examination of the lungs.
