Teaching cardiovascular assessment.


Journal Article

This article describes a learning module for teaching heart sound recognition and summarizes results of two studies testing the learning module. The module, built around a heart sound simulator, was effective with both graduate nursing students (n = 37) and experienced critical care nurses (n = 40). In each study, recognition of heart sounds improved significantly, and the knowledge gained was retained for at least 2 weeks.
