NEW! 2019 Updated Online Edition
Auscultation remains one of the basic skills of physical examination, providing important evidence of cardiovascular health or disease. Why then is it so poorly performed by practitioners, residents and trainees? Unfortunately, the teaching of this skill is often ineffective.
This 2019 revised Online edition includes updated chapters on:
- heart murmur teaching reinforcement
- web based teaching
- hand held ultrasound
- 7 Adult Congenital cases with 15 new recordings
The Online version has been supported by a special grant from the Department of Paediatrics, Dalhousie University.
First published in 2011, Teaching Heart Auscultation to Health Professionals is “a call to action with respect to teaching” (Dr. John Moore, Rady Children’s Hospital, San Diego). The eight contributing authors outline new, evidence based methods for teaching which can improve proficiency with the stethoscope by making teaching more effective and focussed.
