SALE! New cheaper price for a limited time only!
This educational app is not your usual auscultation teaching tool: the app does not present an unmanageable list of heart sounds to learn; rather, iAuscultate concentrates on nine heart sounds. Further, the app allows you to put forth a very concentrated effort for your learning. Rather than hearing a few beats scattered throughout your learning career, iAuscultate has you listen to one sound for 200 seconds - take a break - repeat. Significantly, to augment your learning we provide a visual movie for you to see while listening to each sound. Watching a visual representation of the sound while learning augments the process significantly. The nine sounds include normal, four systolic murmurs, two diastolic murmurs, and two extra heart sounds. Upon completion of iAuscultate you will have literally heard approximately 4,500 beats. iAuscultate can be used as an initial learning tool, or a tool to improve skills in a seasoned auscultator. iAuscultate can also used periodically to keep your skills fresh. The app was developed by Glenn Nordehn and Spencer Strunic of the University of Minnesota Medical School Duluth and Peter Bentley of University College London.
