The Finometer Pro meets the Association for the Advancement of Medical Instruments accuracy requirements for automated sphygmomanometers, with the precision of results comparable with those published for auscultatory
This guide explains the auscultation of the heart and lungs in the evaluation of canine and feline cardiovascular systems, with an emphasis on heart sounds, murmurs, and the auscultatory
characteristics of common arrhythmias and lung sounds.
The subjects were children presenting at the EPU with clinical features comprising a cough of <28 days' duration, fever, difficult breathing, age-related tachypnoea (>50 breaths/minute for infants aged 2 months--1 year, and >40 breaths/minute for children aged 12-59 months), and auscultatory
findings of at least one of reduced breath sound intensity, bronchial breath sounds or crepitations.
The ABPM recording was performed using the auscultatory
mode of the validated Schiller BR-102 plus (Schiller AG, Switzerland).
CHD was clinically diagnosed with auscultatory
murmur heard by using stethoscope over cardiac area of the chest and was confirmed by echocardiography.
Blood pressure--The blood pressure will be measured with the help of sphygmomanometer and stethoscope by Auscultatory
percussion (method of Guarino) might also have some value for detecting small effusion.
The clinical examination established the general condition to be relatively good with arterial blood pressure 120/70 mmHg and normal auscultatory
Diagnosis of hip fracture by the auscultatory
Blood pressure was measured on the left arm according to the auscultatory
method with a mercury-column sphygmomanometer (auscultatory
method, Vasquez-Lubry[R] sphygmomanometer-Germany, Littman stethoscope-USA).
Systolic blood pressure (SBP) and diastolic blood pressure (DBP) were measured by the indirect auscultatory
method using a sphygmomanometer (Missouri[R]) and stethoscope (Rappaport[R] GF Health Products, Northeast Parkway Atlanta).
Whether it is to save time and frustration, or whether programs feel students will get more accurate readings than with an auscultatory
device is not clear.
