  • Identify first and second heart sounds (S1 and S2), distinguish systolic from diastolic in the cardiac cycle.
  • Identify S3 and S4 heart sounds.

After the Zoom session, student groups will attend a scheduled lab session for a procedure demonstration. Students will report to the Skills Lab to demonstrate the procedure/skill on either an anatomical model or patient simulator.
