The accurate interpretation of heart sounds greatly enhances diagnosis, treatment, and patient management. This course is designed to provide nurses of all levels and specialties, respiratory therapists, and other health care professionals with practical tools by which to improve auscultation skills and incorporate the physiology and pathophysiology of heart sounds into the diagnosis and treatment of patients. The course includes descriptions of more than 50 different heart sounds and abundant illustrations of cardiac anatomy and appropriate auscultation sites. An accompanying companion Web site provides online audio cues to assist the learner in recognizing normal and abnormal heart sounds. The course describes heart valves, stroke volume, systole and diastole, and age-related differences in a normal heart and auscultatory areas. It also describes abnormal heart gallops, extra heart sounds, diastolic and systolic heart murmurs, and continuous heart murmur and provides tips for identifying each sound. Nurses will learn about the correlation between the electrocardiogram (ECG) and the timing of heart sounds and about considerations associated with prosthetic heart valves. The course provides valuable materials such as a glossary of commonly used terms, a chart that matches common cardiac disorders with specific heart sounds, rapid review flowcharts of common auscultation findings, and English-Spanish assessment phrases to assist the clinician in communication with Spanish-speaking patients.
