Abnormal respiratory noises that can be heard without a stethoscope include stertor and stridor.  Stridor is a high pitched inspiratory noise associated with obstruction of a large and rigid airway such as the larynx, trachea, or nasopharynx.  With severe obstruction, expiratory stridor can also be deteted.  Stertor is an inspiratory or expiratory snoring noise caused by vibration of soft tissues such as the soft palate and laryngeal saccules.  These findings help localize the type of disease and determine appopriate diagnostics and prognosis.
