Cardiac auscultation is one of the most challenging skills for veterinary students to master. The Murmur Learner module features a series of lessons designed to optimize learning through a unique combination of synchronized audio, video, and animations that explain how murmurs and arrhythmias are generated and classified.
With an approximate contact time of 2.5 hours, Murmur Learner includes the following:
- Split sound
- Regurgitation through a valve
- Flow through a stenotic area
- Flow through an abnormal communication
- Murmur classification (timing, shape, grade, and point of maximal intensity)
- Auscultation technique
- Murmur diagnosis
- Muffled heart sounds
- Equine cardiothoracic auscultation
Access an extensive audio collection allows students to listen to a wide range of common murmurs and arrhythmias.
Includes a bank of case-based practice questions provides students with an opportunity to apply the material and receive feedback on their ability to identify and classify heart sounds.
