sttraining endurance test where they attempted to perform adequate CC for 120 seconds or until fatigue prevented further effort. Prior to training, 50 percent of the male group performed adequate CC, while none of the female group performed adequate CC. Post-training, 89 percent of the male group performed adequate CC and 37 percent of the female group performed adequate CC. There was no correlation between body mass index and adequate CC in either group, however taller females performed better CC than shorter females. Regardless of gender, only 14 percent of subjects were able to maintain adequate CC for 120 seconds, the recommended guideline for one cycle of compressions.

PHYSICIANS USE MP3 PLAYERS TO RECOGNIZE HEART MURMURS

(Wednesday, October 29, 1:00 PM EST)

The use of MP3 players may be an effective way for physicians to improve their recognition of the different types of heart murmurs. In a new study by researchers at Temple University School of Medicine, 255 general internists took a pretest consisting of five heart murmurs played in random order. They then listened to audio files of five basic murmurs on an MP3 player, while viewing posters with phonocardiograms of each sound. The audio files consisted of 200 repetitions of each of the five murmurs played during a single 30-minute session. All participants took a posttest consisting of the same murmurs played in a random order. The murmurs used in the training session were simulated heart sounds, while the murmurs used for both the pretest and posttest were human heart sounds. Participants' correct answers improved from 53.2 on the pretest to 78.9 on the posttest.
