How Do Your Skills Rate?

7 out of 10 clinicians surveyed were not confident in their ability to hear the difference between benign and pathological heart murmurs.

To improve clinical skills and confidence, the eMurmur team met with all types of healthcare practitioners who perform heart auscultation—including physicians, nurse practitioners, nurses, physician assistants, and cardiologists—to understand how to improve cardiac auscultation skills and how to best train listening skills to detect heart murmurs.

The Result: eMurmur Primer—the app that uses real patient heart sounds and murmurs to build and improve your murmur recognition skills.

When you complete the eMurmur Primer app, you’ll be able to:

  • Identify normal heart sounds versus abnormal heart sounds
  • Identify benign and pathologic murmurs
  • Differentiate between murmurs that warrant further evaluation and those that do not

The package introduces you to audible differences between pathologic and innocent murmurs. For example, you will be asked to identify the one heart murmur recording out of a group of four that is either innocent or pathologic. Learn more about this course.
