Family practice and pediatric residents and pediatric cardiology fellows will find the book full of good information in summary form. For the practicing care giver, the book will be an excellent reference text for refresher information.
Lehrer has put together a package that is ideal for both undergraduates and postgraduates in paediatric training. The reasoning behind children's heart sounds and murmurs is laid out clearly and Lehrer is obviously a skilled, thoughtful, and experienced auscultator.
Understanding Pediatric Heart Sounds would be more appropriately titled, "Interpreting Pediatric Heart Sounds," for it comes equipped with one of the clearest tapes for this area of assessment... The book and tape are relatively easy to use. They provide a comprehensive presentation of the heart sounds.
The author's clear style makes the book, and at least a good portion of the audiotape, eminently suitable for students, house staff, and practitioners who wish to enhance their listening skills for pediatric cardiovascular examination.
