The Auscultation Assistant

Rating: 5 stars
Used in Course: Not used in course

Comment: Unlike a textbook, this tutorial offers the student a real-life experience to the sounds of the heart. The sounds of the heart are easily audible in the lesson. Adventitious sounds, as well as "normal" ones, can be better understood by the student. This enables the student to better auscultate heart sounds upon entering the clinical setting. This information can be used by beginning medical and nursing students.
