Did you practice listening to heart/breath sounds in MBBS
I have never been able to make out a murmur besides pansystolic and I don't plan on practicing on patients.. I feel like its a waste of time. I'd rather read the theory.... I've heard people say you can learn all that in PG...Its usually not a problem. btw I'm in the final yr now

UNANSWERED: Am I too old(24) for mbbs?


we did practise listening to heart sounds , identifying classical murmurs...we were lucky to have a good load of patients and good teachers.

there were cassetes by a doc from KEM (dr. Vaidya), mumbai..we use to listen to that too..it was very helpful for case presentations...i guess those are now available in CD form as well


waste?????????...omg...no comments....

Aim AIPGE 2016

hi freudian , its nt a waste of time in listening to those mururs . i am also a final yr student n i too felt d same at d beginning but nw i can pick up some classical murmurs . so dnt giv up


yes, what rmajay says is right...its not a waste of time to learn listening to the heart sounds.

also u need not identify all the murmurs and ? & snaps

first, ur goal should be to just identify the rhythm..S1..S2 and whether the murmur is systolic, diastolic or pansystolic....then go deeper when u master this (also, if u have time...coz ther is so much to read esp in the final year)....in exam, u should just need to identify whether the murmur is sys, dias, or pan


and yes, its not diffiult to identify classical murmurs
