Ever felt that you could be better at interpretting heart sounds?
Echo hasn’t killed this ancient art and the stethoscope around your neck can still help!
- The Texas Heart Institute has produced a fantastic set of podcasts / audio recordings suitable for everyone from beginners to pros.
- They go through the easy, to the weird, to the hard and also to the once in a lifetime murmurs and heart sounds.
- They include tricuspid regurgitation, HOCM, VSD, Pericardial knock…..(yes that’s possible pericardial constriction)… the plop…(you guessed it Left atrial myxoma)…and of cause we cannot forget the Austin Flint…
- Best listened to with headphones as the sounds are so realistic I believe they recorded from the stethoscope
- Happy listening!
