ACUTE AND CRITICAL CARE THERAPY SERIES Individual Sessions: Auscultation LAB - Heart and Breath Sounds - Practicum

Course Description:

Education Resources is thrilled to announce the launch of its new Acute and Critical Care Therapy online course series. The sessions are recorded live from Steven Sadowsky's,  highly acclaimed courses, and are now available to a wide range of health care professionals.

This practicum/lab course will teach you the various characteristics of cardiac and pulmonary sounds: frequency, intensity, duration, and quality and their meanings. You will learn to describe adventitious sounds and what diagnoses they might indicate, classify valvular sounds heard with auscultation, and discuss the mechanisms and sounds heard in Aortic Stenosis and mitral regurgitation, which are commonly seen in the ICU and acute care setting and their implications. A stethoscope is recommended for this session  and we suggest that you have a friend, roommate, spouse or otherwise willing partner to practice on during the lab.


This course is offered for 2 Contact Hours, 0.2 CEUs (Intermediate Level)
