Overview

The purpose of The Art and Science of Cardiac Physical Examination is to arm the student of cardiology with the proper techniques and understanding of the art and science of the cardiac physical examination, to dispel myths and confusion and to help develop skills required of any astute clinician. Every important topic has a summary of salient and practical points from the point of view of clinical assessment. Many illustrations of sounds and murmurs used in the text are derived from digital display of actual audio recordings from patients. The pathophysiology of some of the important clinical cardiac conditions are shown in flow diagrams as well as in tabular format permitting logical review and reinforcement. The audio and the video recordings of sounds and murmurs, the jugular and the precordial pulsations from actual patients with a variety of clinical cardiac problems are also available in a companion CD.
