Group Teaching Heart Auscultation Quiz

For best audio quality with group teaching I recommend that participants should access the cases individually on their own mobile device or laptop. Earbuds are quite satisfactory for this purpose, much better than room speakers.

Adult Case 2

20 year old female, having a routine assessment for work. She is active, cycles and jogs frequently and with no symptoms. No cardiovascular risk factors known. Past history is unremarkable but she thinks she may have been told when she was in elementary school she had an extra sound from her heart but not to worry about it. Her cardiovascular family history is apparently normal.

On examination she looks healthy and fit, with a BMI of 23, heart rate 60 and regular, BP 112/75. Her heart action and pulses are normal. You listen to the chest in the usual areas, particularly at the apical area, with the bell of the stethoscope.
