This category is a survey of both normal and abnormal sounds and heart murmurs encountered in primary care. This includes hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, severe aortic stenosis, arrhythmogenic Rv Dysplasia, mitral valve prolapsed, myocarditis, commotion cordis, and Ebstein’s anomaly The lesson starts with normal heart sounds and continues with extra heart sounds and murmurs.
Please use good quality headphones or earphones. Computer or phones speakers often fail to reproduce some heart sounds.
Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy is a plight in which a portion of the heart becomes thickened without an obvious cause.
Arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia is a rare type of cardiomyopathy. It occurs if the cardiac muscle tissue in the right ventricle dies and is replaced with scar tissue.
Mitral valve prolapsed is a condition in which two valves agitate of the mitral valve do not close smoothly or evenly, but instead prolapsed upward into the left atrium.
Myocarditis is an inflammation of the myocardium which affect your heart muscle and your heart’s electrical system.
Commotion cordis is an often deadly separation of heart rhythm that occurs as a result of a blow to the area directly over the heart at a critical time during the cycle of a heartbeat.
Ebstein’s anomaly is a congenital heart defect in which the septal and posterior leaflets of the tricuspid valve are ectopic towards the apex of the right ventricle of the heart.
In medical practices, correct diagnosis and understanding of the cases are important. So, while doing auscultation hearing the sounds correctly and identifying the abnormalities in it is important. Having prior practice to the sound will be a plus point for you, as we can do better in things we are familiar with. So, this site will be a friend for you in gaining practice in auscultation and learning different cases regarding it. So, practice as much as you want and gain your self- confidence and help for your future practices. This site will always be a friend in need in case of learning about heart sounds.
