Helping you develop skills in the accurate assessment of a patient's heart and lungs, Lung and Heart Sounds Online shows how to identify abnormalities in order to provide positive patient outcomes. Online modules include over 50 lung and heart sounds using narrated animations and audio to enhance your understanding of the skill of chest auscultation. Case studies allow you to test your diagnostic skills and apply auscultation to patient assessment in a safe online environment. Developed from content written by the late Robert L. Wilkins, John Hodgkin, M.D., and Brad Lopez, Lung and Heart Sounds Online lets you hear the most common normal and abnormal lung and heart sounds that you might encounter in practice.
Over 50 normal and abnormal lung and heart sounds, many with narration and visuals, help you learn the lung and heart sounds that may be encountered in the clinical setting.
Interactive exercises include labeling, matching, image association, fill-in, and more, with immediate feedback provided.
Animations and audibles simplify difficult concepts.
Case Study capstone module offers real-world practice of auscultation and diagnostic skills as well as clinical data for each case patient.
