Heart Murmur

Name of Sim: Heart Murmur

Avatar Names: BayBay Bedrosian, Givememeat Kowalski, 2B Schmooz, Jessica10187 Jinn

Purpose of Sim: To identify normal and abnormal heart sounds through auscultation

Likes: The site gave the opportunity to listen to a healthy heart (aortic, pulmonary, tricuspid & mitral valve sites). In addition, we were able to listen to heart defects (Ventricular septal defect, Patent ductus arteriosus, & Aortic valve stenosis) with the provided explanation of each. The site was also easy to navigate.

Dislikes: Surveys did not include the diagnosis for unknown heart cases and included irrelevant information.

The lobby survey is just an instructional design thing, since the guy who built this is an instructional designer, but has also worked in radiation treatment centers, I think.

Thanks for this. As a double heart valve surgery patient, I'm always on the lookout for intersting information. This definitely qualifies.
