Patient or Doctor Passes Wind in the Exam Room

I heard a distinct sound when the elderly patient got up from the chair, the sound of "wind" passing.

I examined the infant's abdomen and it "passed wind".

The nine year old jumped onto the exam table and "passed wind".

So what should a Family Physician say or do at times like these?

On the patient side, many could note how their doctor "passed wind".

What should patients say or do, if anything?

What is the proper "Wind Passing" etiquette?
