Teaching cardiac auscultation: effectiveness of a patient-centered teaching conference on improving cardiac auscultatory
A centenary of auscultatory
blood pressure measurement: a tribute to Nikolai Korotkoff.
findings included prolonged expiration and bilateral wheezing.
blood-pressure determinations: a preliminary report.
The reader will be enlightened by the earliest invasive methods of blood pressure measurement, involving a brass pipe inserted into the artery of a horse, the physics behind the measurement techniques and an outline of the two most common non-invasive measurement methods used today, the auscultatory
and oscillometric methods.
examination of the chest revealed bilateral coarse crepitations, but no cardiac murmurs.
It is easier to obtain an aspirate from a large-bore tube to test its pH and observe its appearance; however, these methods (though far better than the auscultatory
method) are not as accurate as radiography.
Blood pressure measurements are routinely made by the auscultatory
method using a sphygmomanometer with a cuff.
New devices use diodes and other current technology to supplant the century old standard mercury and aneroid sphygmomanometers, while retaining the auscultatory

Fetal heart rate monitoring, either electronic or auscultatory
, is reassuring when normal but has a false-positive rate >99%.
The Tango+ provides accurate, reliable, hands-free measurements utilizing auscultatory
K-sound analysis techniques.
All subjects who were identified and interviewed prior to death underwent a medical assessment and examination that involved recording blood pressure, pulse rate and rhythm, cardiac auscultatory
findings, height and weight, physical function (Barthel index16), neurological status (communication, swallowing, vision, muscle activity, sensation), electrocardiogram (ECG), echocardiogram, chest X-ray and computed tomography (CT) scan.
Arterial blood pressure was measured indirectly using an aneroid sphygmomanometer by the auscultatory
As in this case, differential clubbing and desaturation is an important diagnostic clue for PDA complicated with Eisenmenger syndrome where auscultatory
and echocardiographic signs of PDA are diminished.
