To All:
I am interested in anyone who has worked on assessing the Maximum amount
of hearing loss that a medcial provider may experience before having
problems understanding heart sounds.  I have made some probe mic.
measurements of heart sounds through a stethascope and have been able to
relate them to ear canal referenced hearing thresholds.  However, which
frequency range is necessary for distinguishing the features of normal and
abnormal heart sounds?  Any help is appreciated.
