I have loved spending time learning with eMurmur Primer. This app provides the user with a fun but informative way to improve heart sound recognition. I have thoroughly enjoyed it and look forward to hearing from other nurse practitioners and nurses who want to hone their cardiac auscultation skills, all while earning CE, from the convenience of their phone

Available CE packages


See below for detailed CE package summaries, or click here for a detailed description of the app.


This package focuses on the ability to recognize normal heart sounds from abnormal heart sounds by providing a large number of real patient heart sound recordings to listen to and view. Learn how to distinguish heart sounds from breath sounds, how to read a phonocardiogram (a heart sound visualization), how to recognize S1 and S2, clicks, splits, S4 and arrhythmias.

This package focuses on the ability to hear 'something vs nothing', i.e. whether a heart murmur is present or absent in heart sound recordings. The package introduces you to audible differences between pathologic and innocent murmurs. For example you will be asked to identify the one heart murmur recording out of a group of four that is either innocent or pathologic.

$ 249


ADVANCED - 7 Credits

This package focuses on the ability to identify benign and pathologic heart murmurs. You will learn which murmurs warrant further evaluation. E.g. you get to listen to a randomly selected heart sound recording and are tasked to identify the presence and type of murmur. Or you are asked to identify each of four different sounds as being either innocent or pathologic.

$ 175


ALL-IN - 22 Credits

Purchase all three eMurmur Primer CE packages for 50$ off and gain access to the full content. Completing everything will earn you 22 credits. If you don’t need this many credits now, you also have the option to earn credits along the way for any content you completed. For example, you could only work through the FUNDAMENTALS modules (5 credits) and earn more later.

Our story, our sounds

We started eMurmur Primer after collecting heart sounds from over 1,000 patients through clinical trials. We partnered with top medical institutions to gather our research and build a library of high-quality heart sounds. Our multidisciplinary team met nurses across the country and learned that they want to improve their cardiac auscultation skills in their everyday practice.

eMurmur Primer was designed based on cardiologist Dr. John P. Finley’s 3 Keys to Mastering Cardiac Auscultation, found in his book Teaching Heart Auscultation to Health Professionals.

Download eMurmur Primer for free to understand heart anatomy, identify normal heart sounds versus abnormal, the difference between benign and pathological murmurs, and differentiate between murmurs that warrant further evaluation and those that do not.
