Has anyone ever seen a description or analysis of the sounds typically 
listened to via a stethoscope?  What is the frequency content and intensity 
of these sounds?  I am often at a loss in counselling physicians and nurses 
about how their particular hearing losses interact with the sounds they 
typically must listen to and use for diagnostic purposes.  Wonder about this 
as a liability issue also - when do we inform  health practitioner that given 
their losses, certain stethoscope tasks should not be performed for the 
safety of the patient?  Angela Loavenbruck
