Auscultation is a foundational skill for healthcare professionals. We are pleased to be able to offer the complete line of Cardionics Auscultation Solutions to our customers.
Student Auscultation Manikin
Learning cardiac or pulmonary auscultation has never been easier than with the advent of the SAM, The Student Auscultation Manikin.
For example, can your students tell the difference between a pleural rub of the lung and a pericardial friction rub. Innocent systolic murmurs often sound like the murmur of aortic stenosis. Can the student tell the difference? What is the best method to determine if the patient has an atrial septal defect? With SAM, these and other sounds are presented along with a complete teaching guide.
SAM, the Student Auscultation Manikin, will provide a means for the instructor to teach cardiac and pulmonary auscultation to students at any level. The students can be taught as a group using the optional SimulScope or Classroom Infrared Emitter. Later the students can practice on SAM using their own stethoscope.
Digital Heart Sound Simulator
The CardioSim is an unparalleled system for teaching heart sounds. It allows complete control over heart rate (50-240 bpm). Individual clicks, snaps,knocks, rubs or murmurs can be added or removed to allow the student to learn every element of a sound - one part at a time. For example, if listening to mitral stenosis, initially the student hears just the first and second heart sound. Then an opening snap is added. Once this is learned, a middiastolic murmur is added followed by presystolic accentuation.If regurgitation is desired, a blowing holosystolic murmur is added.
By adding and taking out murmurs, clicks or other sounds, the student is able to learn one part of the sound complex at a time. As a result, they learn quickly and retain more. Repetitive listening to murmurs is routine for more effective retention.
Sound Emitter Systems
The Classroom Infrared Emitter is a small, line-operated infrared emitter designed for classrooms of about 30 students or less. Each listener wears a HeartMan Infrared Headphone. Sound clarity is very similar to a standard stethoscope. It is pure and clean.
The Auditorium Infrared Sound System (ISS) transmits heart, lung, bowel and Korotkoff sounds to a small or large audience with each person wearing a Wireless HeartMan Infrared Headphone (HIH). The ISS is available in two versions - Single Three-Panel Infrared Array shown at the right to accommodate small classrooms or auditoria or the Dual Three-Panel Infrared Array for large auditoria.
