  • Master cardiac auscultation by reviewing the auditory characteristics and handheld echo findings of each heart sound.

    Research reveals that cardiologists fail to identify more than half of basic murmurs and about 35 percent of advanced murmurs when challenged at a major medical meeting, but skills improved after a 90 minute Heart Songs training session.

    Heart Songs 5 provides you with everything you need to effortlessly improve your cardiac auscultation skills! Simply watch/listen to each video within Heart Songs 2 to 4 times to master each murmur/sound.

    Psychoacoustic research shows that intensive repetition (400 to 600 times) is key, producing a significant improvement in cardiac auscultation in a relatively short time. Once each new sound is mastered, it will be reinforced every time you hear it in a patient.

    Each Heart Songs video includes echo images that illustrate that murmur.
