Hey ya’ll. I have found some great resources for learning heart sounds. I am so excited that I found these. Click HERE to go to another website to listen to a WIDE variety of different heart sounds and get some other great information about heart and lung sounds. I wish I had known about this site a long time ago.
This Emergency Medicine Resident does an awsome job explaining the heart sounds in an easy to understand manner. I was so impressed with his entire demeanor. It is well worth spending 20 minutes to watch the video. It will help tremendously once you start your clinical rotations.
I found a site that explains breath sounds clearly and in an easy to understand format. There are also several sound clips of various lung sounds. Click HERE to go to the site.

Great Video to learn the blood flow.
