Etymology: Fr, noise
an abnormal blowing or swishing sound or murmur heard while auscultating a carotid artery, the aorta,
an organ, or a gland, such as the liver or thyroid, and resulting from blood flowing through a narrow or
partially occluded artery. The specific character of the bruit, its location, and the time of its occurrence in
a cycle of other sounds are all of diagnostic importance. Bruits are usually of low frequency and are
heard best with the bell of a stethoscope.
