Heart Sounds and Murmurs

The stethoscope is one of the primary tools in detecting heart disease. Auscultation can detect blood flow problems, proper function of the cardiac valves, changes in the cardiac cycle, the presence of ventricular septal defects, and the health of the pericardium.

You can learn about auscultation of the heart in most courses on Cath-Web to better enhance your skills and knowledge of heart disease.
