          Abstract

          We report a new cardiology patient simulator developed through the application of new digital computer technology, capable of playing back selected physical findings (jugular-venous waves, arterial pulses of carotid, brachial, radial and femoral arteries, and cardiac impulses), as well as cardiac sounds, murmurs and respiratory sounds that have been prerecorded from actual patients. The examining physician uses an ordinary type of stethoscope. Four built-in speakers are located in the human-sized mannequin at the classic auscultatory sites (aortic, pulmonic, tricuspid and mitral). This compact and portable educational apparatus should facilitate medical training in the bedside cardiac examination, of physicians, medical students, nurses and paramedics throughout the world.
