provides a visual representation of the content of the respiratory sound
recording. Time is shown on the horizontal and frequency on the vertical
axis. Sound intensity is indicated on a color scale, ranging from red (loud)

abdominal [AB] movement at the bottom (inspiration = up, expiration = down). Note: there is asynchronous movement of chest and abdomen during
inspiration, clinically apparent as "indrawing".
