The lung sound signal, a vital physiological parameter in clinical auscultation, holds a wealth of physiological insights crucial for diagnosing and monitoring human health. Traditionally, clinicians heavily rely on subjective experiences to discern the nuances of lung sounds, aiding in the diagnosis of various pulmonary conditions. However, the inherent limitations of subjective judgment may lead to overlooked diagnoses or, worse, misdiagnoses of pulmonary diseases. In contrast to imaging methods like chest X-rays and lung function tests, which pose potential harm to the human body, lung sound auscultation stands out as a non-invasive and risk-free approach.

This paper addresses the burgeoning interest in leveraging machine learning techniques to harness the full potential of lung sound signals for enhanced diagnostic accuracy. Currently, clinicians depend on their subjective expertise to interpret the diverse array of lung sounds, introducing a considerable margin for error. With the evolution of computer science, there is a paradigm shift towards employing machine learning methodologies to achieve robust recognition and classification of lung sound signals. This transformative approach aims to empower healthcare professionals by providing objective and data-driven insights into patients’ pulmonary conditions.

In clinical practice, the conventional reliance on subjective judgment raises concerns about missed diagnoses or incorrect assessments of lung diseases. Recognizing these challenges, this research advocates for the integration of machine learning algorithms to augment clinical auscultation. By developing automated systems capable of deciphering the intricate patterns within lung sound signals, we aim to mitigate the risks associated with subjective interpretation.

Moreover, it is imperative to underscore the non-invasiveness of lung sound auscultation, distinguishing it from conventional diagnostic modalities that may pose potential harm. By embracing machine learning advancements, we embark on a journey towards more precise and efficient diagnoses, minimizing the dependency on invasive procedures. As the field of computer science progresses, our commitment to refining and expanding the capabilities of machine learning in lung sound analysis is pivotal for revolutionizing pulmonary disease diagnosis.
