Auscultation of neonates by means of conventional techniques is subject to many errors. Consequently, pediatricians rely on radiographs for much of their information regarding ventilation abnormalities. We report a method of simultaneous differential auscultation, using a double-headed stethoscope, which allows better auscultatory evaluation of neonates. The technique is simple and easily learned. The equipment used is inexpensive and easily constructed. The technique is most useful in emergency and transport situations when radiographs are not readily available.
