Abstract

The clinical skill of cardiac auscultation, while known to be sensitive, specific, and inexpensive in screening for cardiac disease among children, has recently been shown to be deficient among residents in training. This decline in clinical skill is partly due to the difficulty in teaching auscultation. Standardization, depth, and breadth of experience has been difficult to reproduce for students due to time constraints and the impracticality of examining large numbers of patients with cardiac pathology. We have developed a web-based multimedia platform that delivers complete heart sound recordings from over 800 different patients seen at the Johns Hopkins Outpatient Pediatric Cardiology Clinic. The database represents more than twenty significant cardiac lesions as well as normal and innocent murmurs. Each patient record is complete with a gold standard echo for diagnostic confirmation and a gold standard auscultatory assessment provided by a pediatric cardiology attending.
