A practical and simple guide to the art of cardiac auscultation which teaches the reader how to identify a pathological heart murmur. The book explains what heart sounds are and how to use a stethoscope. It covers all the standard adult and child murmurs and is organised by region. It includes all the text of the tutorials. The CD provides, in a series of tutorials, the chance to listen to and identify the range of heart sounds; while in the pathology section a listener can focus down on each individual component of the sound allowing them to discern the key features of each murmur.
