RATIONALE The standardized use of a stethoscope for chest auscultation in clinical research is limited by its inherent inter-listener variability. Electronic auscultation and automated classification of recorded lung sounds may help prevent some of these shortcomings. OBJECTIVE We sought to perform a systematic review and meta-analysis of studies implementing computerized lung sound analysis (CLSA) to aid in the detection of abnormal lung sounds for specific respiratory disorders. METHODS… Expand
Computerised lung sound analysis to improve the specificity of paediatric pneumonia diagnosis in resource-poor settings: protocol and methods for an observational study
TLDR
This study will develop standardised methods for electronic auscultation and chest ultrasound and compare their utility for detection of pneumonia to standard approaches, and develop a classification system to distinguish pathologic sounds. Expand
Performance Analysis: Preprocessing of Respiratory Lung Sounds
TLDR
The DWT performs better compared to RLS, LMS, SRLS and TVD in removing the artifacts from the lung sounds and the performance metrics Mean Square Error (MSE), Mean Absolute Error (MAE), Signal to Noise Ratio (SNR) and Cross Correlation (CC) are computed. Expand
Developing a Reference of Normal Lung Sounds in Healthy Peruvian Children
TLDR
Lung sound extracted features varied significantly with child characteristics and lung site, and this work offers a novel, reproducible tool for sound analysis in real-world environments. Expand
Respiratory Sound Analysis for Detection of Pulmonary Diseases
TLDR
A very simple yet effective method for the second stage analysis- characterization of waveform of the filtered LS for some of the male and female age groups to obtain power spectrum plot of a particular LS. Expand
Automatic adventitious respiratory sound analysis: A systematic review
TLDR
The performance of recent studies showed a high agreement with conventional non-automatic identification and suggests that automated adventitious sound detection or classification is a promising solution to overcome the limitations of conventional auscultation and to assist in the monitoring of relevant diseases. Expand
Respiratory sound analysis as a diagnosis tool for breathing disorders
TLDR
An overview of respiratory sound analysis (RSA) and its functionality as a diagnostic tool for breathing disorders, including sleep apnoea, lung sound analysis, wheeze detection and phase estimation is provided. Expand
Acoustic Methods for Pulmonary Diagnosis
TLDR
This paper focuses on the fundamentals of acoustic lung signals and the pathophysiology of the diseases that these signals are used to detect, and focuses on different methods of measuring and creating signals that have been used in recent research for pulmonary disease diagnosis. Expand
Listening panel agreement and characteristics of lung sounds digitally recorded from children aged 1–59 months enrolled in the Pneumonia Etiology Research for Child Health (PERCH) case–control study
TLDR
Listening panel and case–control data suggests the methodology is feasible, likely valid and that small airway inflammation is common in WHO pneumonia. Expand
A Multi-feature Approach for Noise Detection in Lung Sounds
TLDR
This study focuses in the analysis of lungs sounds recorded in two different populations containing events of cough, speech and other artifacts from the surrounding environment, achieving sensitivity and specificity values of 84% and 61%, respectively for one population and 88% and 52% for another population.

Investigation of an appropriate feature extraction methods based on single channel lung sounds
TLDR
In this study, an effective feature method was investigated in order to classify commonly heard and single channel recorded lung sounds with high accuracy and the most efficient feature was obtained when using features extracted from frequency domain and Mel Frequency Cepstrum Coefficients. Expand

The relationship between normal lung sounds, age, and gender.
TLDR
For both men and women, a slight increase of the relative power in the frequency band of 330 to 600 Hz was recorded with increasing age, but these small changes have no clinical significance and need not to be considered in the automatic detection of lung diseases by analyzing lung sounds. Expand
Representation and Classification of Breath Sounds Recorded in an Intensive Care Setting Using Neural Networks
TLDR
Several choices in signal representation and neural network design greatly improved the classification rates of breath sounds and long term monitoring of lung sounds is not feasible unless several barriers can be overcome. Expand
