Hearing Horse Hearts

How many times have you heard something weird when listening to a horse's heart and wished for an audio recording to compare sounds? This CD provides just what it says it does - an illustrated guide (that includes audiovisual support) for cardiac auscultation in the horse. The text and audio cover normal and abnormal heart sounds, rhythms, and murmurs in the horse. The text nicely supports the audio and graphic depiction of the phonocardiogram to aid in analyzing the heart sounds as they occur within the cycle. The quality of the recordings is excellent. This will be a useful tool for veterinarians of all backgrounds, and may work as an instructional device for students, technicians, and clients. It is well worth having in your professional library. The computer requirements include Windows 95 or higher, a media player, and headphones. The CD can be used without headphones, but a quiet environment would be helpful.

Note: After reviewing this CD, it was learned that there is already an updated version (The Art Of Equine Auscultation) by the same author.
