We read with interest the review by M.J Blans and F.H. Bosch entitled “Ultrasound in acute internal medicine; time to set a European standard?” published in the Journal [1]. We agree with the majority of assertions made by the authors of this paper. Nevertheless, we wish to recall the importance for clinicians of auscultation, in emergency situations and of course in internal medicine. Thus for us, auscultation is not always overused, especially in our world, where complementary examinations take place at the expense of the clinic.
