This reference guide for heart sounds includes over a hundred audio recordings with descriptions. Audio tracks include both recorded patient heart murmurs and simulated heart murmurs. This list of sounds can be filtered by auscultation position.
Learn heart murmurs and other abnormal heart sounds using these courses. Over 60 lessons present systolic and diastolic murmurs, third (S3) and fourth (S4) heart sounds and congenital conditions. Each lesson includes audio, text, phonocardiogram and cardiac animation.Use the Quick Links panel to select a course.
We recommend that students start with our Introduction to Heart Murmur page.
Heart Murmur Introduction
Then take the Normal Heart Sounds course and progress down the list of additional courses, at least through the Diastolic Murmurs course. Courses typically take 15-20 minutes. Our Auscultation in Primary Care followed by Basic Lung Sounds is another excellent learning pathway.
