This package teaches how to examine the heart of a child, with a booklet and a twenty-minute audio tape that reproduces heart sounds. Reviews the anatomy and physiology of a child's heart as well as principles of sound, hearing, and the proper use of the stethoscope. Details methods for history taking, performing a physical examination, and auscultating the heart. ¿The author's clear style makes the book, and at least a good portion of the audiotape, eminently suitable for students, house staff, and practitioners who wish to enhance their listening skills for pediatric cardiovascular examination.¿ New England Journal of Medicine
