List of terms related to Bruit

Editor-In-Chief: C. Michael Gibson, M.S., M.D. [1]


Bruit (pronounced (IPA) either /bru.i/ or /brut/) is the term for the unusual sound that blood makes when it rushes past an obstruction (called turbulent flow) in an artery when the sound is auscultated with the bell portion of a stethoscope.

Further discussion about arterial bruits can be found here.

The location of the stethoscope when the sound is heard can guide the diagnosis:

  • If the sound is heard in the neck arteries it is called a carotid bruit
  • If the sound is heard in the abdomen, it is called an abdominal bruit
