Familiarity with normal and abnormal heart sounds provides the foundation for many clinical assessments. Cardiac auscultation provides information about the rate and rhythm of the heart, valve function, and possible anatomical defects. It requires a methodical approach with careful attention to the sounds produced during the cardiac cycle. Nurses providing direct patient care need to have a clear understanding of auscultation techniques, practices, and skills - skills which can diminish if not routinely employed. This program provides a thorough understanding of auscultation techniques and practices including the basic process of cardiac auscultation, identifying landmarks where cardiac sounds can best be heard, proper positioning of the patient, and how to record observations. 14 minutes.
