Great app two suggestions
Great app, thank you! Would be even better if i) could compare one murmur to the sound of another similar murmur (e.g., pericardial knock vs S3 gallop) directly back and forth, vs now you can only compare each murmur vs normal heart sounds. ii) Heart sounds were more realistic. They sound kind of synth-y, and the biggest challenge I have is translating what I hear on this app and similar online sites to what actual patient heart sounds sound like. Some better audio files would help a lot here. Thank you again!
A good app with details
I like this app. It does what it says, and it labels the sounds. For example it doesn't just play the sound for mitral regurgitation. It also has a visual representation of it which shows the points you should hear s1 and the other sounds present in pathology during a heartbeat. There is also a quick link back to a normal heart sound for easy comparison. I hope you like it.
This is awesome!
Loving this app. As we begin to study cardiac, this app really helps to bring it all together and what I learn in theory is making sense. Wish I'd have used this before last weeks clinical on the cardiac unit but next week, I'll have a better understanding of heart tones and what they mean. M.T.
