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
If you want to listen on your mobile device, they use Pocket Casts – click the icon below:
