Since the first edition of this text appeared in 1955, significant advances have been made in audio-visual technics. In addition, other books have appeared which are devoted to various aspects of cardiac auscultation.
The present text incorporates several desirable features which were lacking in the earlier edition. The stethograms are now recorded and illustrated with simultaneous electrocardiograms or pulse tracings. The hemodynamic data are more detailed, and the text itself is more physiologically oriented. Several criticisms which were made of the earlier edition are not applicable to the present edition. The chapter devoted to murmurs is extremely readable.
