The majority of children have a heart murmur at some time in their lives. Although innocent heart murmurs pose no risk for the patient, other heart murmurs may indicate pathology that may lead to significant cardiac problems. Therefore, differentiating between patients who might have significant cardiac pathology from those patients with an innocent murmur requires both technical and cognitive skill. This application/website will instruct you using a programmed, organized approach to auscultation that should build your skill using your stethoscope, and your clinical confidence with auscultation. These sound recordings were directly obtained from patients utilizing a stethoscope, amplifier and digital recording device. These recordings closely mimic the sounds heard during a normal cardiac examination, including sounds made by patient movement and respiration. This will closely simulate a real life situation. We hope your educational experience is rewarding.
