This series from the Texas Heart Institute at St. Lukes Episcopal Hospital Robert J. Hall Heart Sounds Laboratory presents auscultation of various heart sounds as they relate to the anatomy, physiology, and diagnosis of cardiovascular disease. The podcasts are developed for physicians, medical residents, nurses, and other clinicians who wish to improve auscultation skills. More information that further demonstrates the physiology of the heart sounds is provided for some podcasts. Use headphones for best audio quality.

It's a pleasure to review heart sounds from this fine institute. This is a clearly presented review of MVP-(2/09 program)- sounds with provocative manuvers. The phonocardiograms are excellent and best heard with walkman or MP3 headphones. These are great reviews for students, residents, as well as experienced clinicians.I look forward to continued podcasts as these would help me teach in the clinic.
A very helpful resource to improve physical exams. Thank you so much to the Texas Heart Institute and Dr. Wilson for providing this material free of charge to the rest of it. I have recommended it to my friends.
Awesome sound. Help me a lot!
