    In this paper, a novel framework based on a time-frequency (TF) approach is proposed for detection of murmurs from heart sound signal. First, a high-resolution TF algorithm, matching pursuit, was used to decompose each heart beat into a series of TF atoms selected from a redundant dictionary....

    Cardiac murmurs, most of which are harmless, are present in more than 50% of children. Good auscultation skills are required to prevent unnecessary referrals. The auscultation skills of a group of 21 pediatric residents were assessed. Based on their identification of key features such as S1, S2,...

    Background: Although cardiac auscultation remains important to detect abnormal sounds and murmurs indicative of cardiac pathology, the application of electronic methods remains seldom used in everyday clinical practice. In this report we provide preliminary data showing how the phonocardiogram...
