Description


Auscultation Skills: Breath and Heart Sounds, Fourth Edition is the only book-and-audio-CD product on the market that offers full coverage of heart and breath sounds from the simple to the complex and provides a comprehensive text explaining heart and breath sound fundamentals including basic anatomy and physiology, best auscultation locations, tips on how to identify each sound, and what to document. This product offers practicing nurses, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants a solid basis for recognizing and differentiating among abnormal breath and heart sounds to help them accurately interpret what they hear and then apply that knowledge toward a proper diagnosis and treatment regimen.

The book is supplemented with an all-in-one CD that features 46 tracks of breath sounds and 50 tracks of heart sounds, which can be listened to sequentially with the book or reviewed in any order the reader chooses. The CD can be listened to in the car or on the computer; it can be downloaded to the computer and converted to MP3 files.

Tips and alerts abound throughout the book to help manage optimal care. A glossary of commonly used terms and abbreviations and an easy-to-read chart of common disorders matched with their specific abnormal breath and heart sounds add to the book's utility.
