Cardiac auscultation is the standard examination method used worldwide to screen for heart defects by identifying murmurs.  Yet, the lack of cardiac auscultation skill in graduating medical and nursing students continues to be demonstrated. A new approach can reverse this trend.

Cardiac Auscultation Challenges Facing Educators and Students


Limited time during curriculum → listening cannot be learned through note-taking or memorization


Rare sounds

Infrequent exposure to rare physical findings during clinical time

Lack of accessibility

Lack of easily accessible student teaching material beyond just text

Cost and time with simulation labs

Expensive patient simulators with limited student access

About Us

Our apps are now Available in Apple IOS store,  and Android Play Store.

Hear it. Know it. See it. eMurmur is a privately-held medical device and artificial intelligence company specializing in Machine Learning approaches for the analysis and classification of complex human data for innovative medical applications. The company also provides a suite of apps for efficient classroom teaching, self-paced learning to leading medical schools, and earning continuing education credits for US nurses and nurse practitioners. Heart disease is the leading cause of death globally for both men & women causing 31% of all deaths (17.7M) annually. Heart auscultation (listening with a stethoscope for irregularities) is the most common screening test and can be an effective way of diagnosing many heart conditions. However, accurate auscultation requires expert-level training and experience. For example only 20-25% of referrals by primary care providers to echocardiography turn out to be pathological heart-murmurs. Artificial intelligence and e-learning through mobile apps are the way of the future for heart auscultation.

The company is headquartered in Ottawa, Canada (CSD Labs International), has an office in Graz, Austria (CSD Labs GmbH) and does business under the name eMurmur.
