Audience: Physicians and allied health care personnel.
Purpose: To help health care workers understand cardiac ausculation.
Content: This primer is a tool for analyzing auscultatory data away from the bedside. “Cardiophonics” transcribes mechanical heart sounds into “word prints,” matching up to 13 short sound patterns to heart sounds with the phonics card or a 3.5-inch multimedia disk as reference. The 10 chapters are grouped into three sections, which address auscultation in general, the clinical aspects of auscultation, and critical care auscultation.
