Book Description
The stethoscope was invented by the French
doctor Rene Laennec, from Quimper, France.
He believed that a more modem method to diagnose
chest conditions was needed. To listen
to his patients’ heartbeats and breathing, he
first used rolled-up paper tied with string and
realized that the sounds were amplified in comparison
to the ear directly on the chest method,
which had been the previous practice. He
struggled to find a name for his invention, discarding
such names as ” sonometer,” “medical
comet,”and •’pectrolique.” Or “thoraciscope.”
Finally he chose “stethoscope,” literally meaning
“I look into the chest” in Greek.
We have come a long way from those early
days but auscultation of the heart and lung
remains a true art form. It is the end product of
a marriage of the anatomy and physiology of
the pulmonary and cardiovascular system with
a practiced skill set. In this text, you will find
that each chapter will provide the reader with
a pretest and posttest challenge to the anatomy
and physiology of underlying pulmonary or cardiac
conditions coupled with posttest answers
in order to help reinforce the information found
in the text.
In addition, not only will the text generated
by experts in the field provide you with
the understanding of the sound generated from
both heart and lung but the accompanying Web
site will simulate the sounds associated with
both nonnal and abnormal sounds. To reap the
rewards of this time-honored method of evaluating
the pulmonacy and cardiovascular system.
one needs to consider auscultation in the same
light as a good consumer of music requiring a
great deal of practice in order to ttain the ear.
The editor requests that, in order to experience
the full effect of this learning tool, you listen to
the sounds heard on the Web site as you visualize
the actual sound production in the heart or
lung. This ties the physiology explained in this
text to the sound generated and thus provides
the readern.istener with a learning experience,
generating a greater understanding of the power
of the stethoscope…
