This guide has been assembled with an eye towards clinical relevance. It represents a departure from the usual physical exam teaching tools which, in their attempts to be all inclusive, tend to de-emphasize the practical nature of patient care
This online program focuses on the four common valvar lesions in the left heart: aortic regurgitation, aortic stenosis, mitral regurgitation, and mitral stenosis. Actual patients illustrate the physical findings associated valvar disease. You can listen to the patient's heart at several listening locations, while at the same time you can see video of pulsations in the neck, precordium, or extremities. The findings are explained with text, as well as illustrated with phonocardiograms, hemodynamic data, and computer animations.
These videotaped presentations provide primary care physicians with useful overviews of general physical examinations for musculoskeletal conditions in the shoulder, knee, hip, low back, and foot and ankle
