I was recently preparing a presentation on IPF and came across this useful resource developed by Boehringer Ingelheim.  The IPF Sound Challenge allows you to practice identifying various respiratory conditions, including IPF. After each recording you will be asked to identify the patient’s condition from four options. The correct answer will be displayed as well as an option to listen to that sound again or continue on to the next sound. Your overall score will be presented as a percentage at the end.

It is available online but there is also a handy app that can be downloaded to your smartphone available in Android and Apple app stores.
