description
If the patient is middle-aged or elderly, you should auscultate for bruits. A bruit is often, but not always, a sign of arterial narrowing and risk of a stroke. - Place the bell of the stethoscope over each carotid artery in turn. You may use the diaphragm if the patient's neck is highly contoured. - Ask the patient to stop breathing for a moment. - Listen for a blowing or rushing sound-a bruit. Do not be confused by heart sounds or murmurs transmitted from the chest.
