Course Description

This intensive one-day workshop provides the individual healthcare provider with the information needed to recognize and understand the production of sounds within the human body. Rather than memorizing sounds, the physiology of normal and abnormal sounds is presented with the use of audiovisual aids. Practice sessions enable the provider to accurately distinguish normal and abnormal sounds and recognize the significance of the sounds heard. The goals of this class are identifying strategies of treatment needs based on assessment findings and developing the confidence to use the stethoscope to assist in performing a thorough and accurate assessment. Please wear comfortable, loose clothes and bring your stethoscope!

Program Learning Outcomes
This program prepares the learner to:

  • Describe the differences in stethoscopes and how to properly use your tool.
  • Demonstrate a complete abdominal assessment.
  • Identify organs and broken bones using the stethoscope.
  • Identify the requirements for an adequate cardiac auscultation.
  • Learn how to use the Handy Heart Simulator to duplicate heart sounds.
