How to achieve proficient cardiac auscultation skills

Auditory repetition

Listening accurately for abnormal heart sounds and murmurs requires practice and repeated exposure to heart sounds.

Visual integration

Research shows that viewing the heart sounds while listening makes it easier for learners to understand what they are hearing.

Self-testing

Listening skills deteriorate over time and the ability to self-assess ones accuracy is key to recognizing when more training is needed.

Refresher learning

Regularly scheduled refresher learning of heart sounds ensures that accurate murmur identification skills remain high over time.
