Learn to properly identify, interpret, and differentiate a wide variety of canine and feline heart and lung sounds with Rapid Interpretation of Heart and Lung Sounds: A Guide to Cardiac and Respiratory Auscultation in Dogs and Cats, 3rd Edition.
Rapid Interpretation of Heart and Lung Sounds 3rd Edition + Multimedia
A brand new companion website features both simulated and actual clinical examples to help you master and evaluate common sounds like murmurs and arrhythmias. And with the helpful instructions in the text integrated with the heart and lung sounds, you will be well prepared to perform accurate heart and lung auscultation in dogs and cats.
- Heart sound simulator allows you to focus on the heart sounds without the distraction of respiratory sounds or artifacts of hair rubbing against the stethoscope.
- Wide variety of heart and lung sounds provides you with real-life cases that are as close to clinical practice as possible.
- Pretests may be taken prior to reviewing the book and website to measure how much you already know.
- Posttests help determine when the material has been mastered and direct the user to remediation in areas where additional study is needed.
- Inclusion of clinically-relevant conditions makes it easy for you to apply this information to day-to-day practice.
- Key points called out within the text alert you to potential problems, variations on techniques, and other treatment considerations.
- NEW! User-friendly companion website integrated with the text fully prepares you to identify, interpret, and differentiate heart and lung sounds in dogs and cats.
- EXPANDED! Respiratory content offers actual examples of video and lung sounds on respiratory patterns in animals that are dyspeptic from various causes.
Auscultation of the heart and lungs by an expert clinician remains the most informative single diagnostic test available for the evaluation of the cardiovascular system. Auscultation presents little risk to patient or clinician, and it is quickly accomplished with inexpensive, easily maintained, highly portable equipment. Unfortunately, it takes a sustained, dedicated effort on the part of the clinician to gain substantial expertise in auscultation—and substantial expertise is needed before accurate diagnostic findings can be obtained.
Auscultation potentially provides accurate information about the heart rate, rhythm, and blood flow within the heart and great vessels and may also indicate the presence and location of pulmonary pathologic conditions. Although the availability of sophisticated cardiovascular imaging methods (e.g., echocardiography, magnetic resonance imaging) has added significantly to the ability to evaluate the heart’s function and anatomy, auscultation—interpreted in conjunction with a complete history and physical examination—continues to provide the key to deciding when these sophisticated diagnostic tests are appropriate. This learning package, composed of the book and a NEW companion website, is designed to help with the difficult task of acquiring expertise in auscultation.
