The cardiac exam remains one of the most important aspects of the physical examination, yet data suggests that cardiac exam skills for non-cardiologists peak during medical school. Blaufuss Multimedia has partnered with SBM to make two outstanding teaching and assessment tools available to our members.
The Cardiac Examination
The Cardiac Examination (CE) is a 50-question assessment that uses videos and recordings from actual patients to assess audio, visual, physiology, and integrative knowledge of the cardiac exam for learners at all levels. Link to download here.
The CE Interactive Teaching Tool
The CE Interactive teaching tool has 10 real cases that integrate videos of the neck and precordium as well as high-fidelity auscultation recordings to teach learners about common cardiac abnormalities. This tool can be used as a stand alone teaching tool or integrated into a larger physical diagnosis curriculum. Link to download here.
