On November 7, 2019 the Auscultation Classroom launched on AccessMedicine. This new multimedia resource provides students with the ability to hear an abnormal heart sound while simultaneously watching a graphic of the intracardiac abnormality that is occurring. Students learn proper auscultation techniques for each murmur. Modules also discuss basics regarding clinical findings associated with the murmurs.
The Auscultation Classroom launched with an initial 6 modules. Each module offers an introductory slide, an auscultation points slide, and a final slide. Check volume is at an appropriate level as it may be hard to hear the murmur if volume is low.
