Auscultation Training by Repetition

As a supplement to our courses and reference guides, we provide repetition auscultation training. This training is available using short courses or quick lessons. Auscultatory repetition training has been used in the CardioSource Heart Songs CDs and in several for-fee software products. The effectiveness of this type of training was reported in CHEST in 2004: 'Mastering Cardiac Murmurs* : The Power of Repetition' by Michael J. Barrett, Carolyn S. Lacey, Amy E. Sekara, Erica A. Linden and Edward J. Gracely.
