    Some respiratory sounds like stridor, wheeze etc are sometimes described as musical sounds.

    What is the definition of musical sounds in this context?

    Music becomes music due to overtone… If sound like that produced from the respiratory pathway it can be called musical respiratory sound.


    I shall write a more detailed answer on this later.

    Our respiratory sound (both vesicular and bronchial) are not musical…one can easily appreciate it on auscultation. vesicular sound is muffled in nature and bronchial sound is something like blowing thorugh a pipe. So musical respiratiory sound is something that is more like a tune…you’d know at once you hear it.
