Heart Sounds

Heart Sounds


Many doctors find the auscultation of the heart a difficult examination to perform confidently. We have designed this audio resource to allay such anxieties. The module is based on cases with which any doctor will be familiar and the audio files should enable you to improve your skills at recognising normal and abnormal heart sounds. Read the clinical scenarios and listen to the audio file, then answer the associated question.

This module will allow you to:

  • Be familiar with typical heart sounds and auscultatory abnormalities
  • Be familiar with the clinical scenarios accompanying valvular abnormalities
  • Be familiar with the typical murmurs of typical valvular defects such as valvular stenoses and regurgitation
