Tips and Tricks

The sounds in the Shadow Health Concept Labs and Physical Assessment Assignments are medically accurate.

Distinguishing normal from abnormal heart sounds requires practice and carefully listening for sometimes subtle and easily missed sounds. Be sure to take advantage of the Cardiovascular Concept Lab to sharpen your skills prior to beginning this assignment. Brian Foster Shadow Health Assessment.

Optimize your listening experience by using headphones with your computer and listen to both normal and abnormal sounds multiple times to improve your proficiency with recognizing subtle differences.

Often patients present with a specific complaint or problem. However, during the history and physical examination, a new problem may be discovered that takes precedence during the visit. Be alert to such a situation with this case study assignment.
