Bruit is the term for the unusual sound that blood makes when it rushes past an obstruction in an artery when the sound is auscultated with the bell portion of a stethoscope. The term "bruit," the French word for "noise," simply refers to the sound. A related term is "vascular murmur", which should not be confused with a heart murmur. The location of the stethoscope when the sound is observed can affect the diagnosis.
Chambers 20th Century Dictionary
brōōt, n. noise: something noised abroad: a rumour or report.—v.t. to noise abroad: to report: to celebrate. [Fr. bruit—Fr. bruire; cf. Low L. brugītus; prob. imit.]
a report or rumor. a sound, especially an abnormal one, heard through a stethoscope; a murmur.
