This book consists of 27 chapters, which include history taking, arterial pulse, blood pressure, jugular venous pulse, precordial examination (palpation), first heart sound, second heart sound, third heart sound, fourth heart sound, systolic and diastolic sounds, diastolic murmurs, continuous murmurs, rheumatic fever, aortic stenosis, aortic regurgitation, mitral stenosis, mitral regurgitation, prosthetic valve, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, constrictive pericorditis, aortoarteritis, approach to congenital heart disease, Eisenmenger syndrome, Tetralogy of Fallot or ventricular septal defect plus pulmonary stenosis, pulmonary atresia with VSD, chest x-ray, and ECG criteria. This book is written for the board exam-going students and it useful for the students who taking up either DM in cardiology or DNB examinations.
