Product Description
This multimedia CD-ROM is a convenient, accessible tool for developing cardiac auscultation skills. It contains computer simulations of 28 abnormal heart sounds along with visual representations of the sounds (phonocardiograms), electrocardiograms and pressure tracings for each condition, and animated cartoons showing the anatomic and Doppler flow abnormalities. Users can listen to each auditory heart sound while viewing graphic material that helps identify the abnormality. On-screen controls allow users to selectively listen to portions of the heart sound cycle—S1, S2, systole, or diastole. The program also includes a quiz mode. When using this CD-ROM headphones are required. Windows / Macintosh Compatible

#509 Anisogamy: The Beginning of Male and Female
This week we discuss how the sperm and egg came to be, and how a difference of reproductive interest has led to sexual conflict in bed bugs. We'll be speaking with Dr. Geoff Parker, an evolutionary biologist credited with developing a theory to explain the evolution of two sexes, about anisogamy, sexual reproduction through the fusion of two different gametes: the egg and the sperm. Then we'll speak with Dr. Roberto Pereira, research scientist in urban entomology at the University of Florida, about traumatic insemination in bed bugs.
