Heart Songs 3 Overview Thank you for purchasing Heart Songs 3!

Now with video, Heart Songs 3 provides you with high-quality heart sounds that you can look at and listen to at your convenience to improve your cardiac auscultation skills. Master heart sounds basic, intermediate, and complex with this program designed specifically to help you learn in the way that your brain processes auditory information. Heart Songs 3 is based on psychoacoustic research thats shown intensive repetition (400 to 600 times) to be key, producing a significant improvement in cardiac auscultation in a relatively short time. Once each new sound is mastered, it will be reinforced every time you hear it in a patient. Modeled after its successful predecessors, Heart Songs 3 includes all the murmurs from the previous version plus images of phonocardiograms, CT scans and even videos of color Doppler echocardiograms! These visual enhancements will facilitate your understanding and mastery of many heart murmurs. Editor: Michael J. Barrett, M.D., F.A.C.C.
