Heart Sounds Drill 1

Diamond vs. rectangular pan-systolic murmurs

This drill will contrast twp cycles with pan-systolic murmurs. The first has a diamond shaped murmur and the second has a rectangular shaped murmur.

Since the murmurs are of equal duration you must concentrate on the quality of the murmur. Use the listen and learn tab to learn the difference in sound between a diamond and a rectangular murmur.

Listen as long as you want.When you are confident that you can detect the difference, move on to the test. In the test we will play cycles randomly and ask you to tell which is which.
