Pediatric size auscultation trainer with listening points at the correct anatomical locations. Heart sounds at different rates for comparison, (e.g. Example: Atrial Septal Defect at 75 bm and 90 bm).
PAT's computer software interface is easily projected into any smart classroom. The software includes phonocardiograms, correct anatomical locations, and written lessons for each sound.
With programmable and password-protected lectures, many institutions find value in having numerous instructors utilize PAT.

The PAT the Pediatric Auscultation Trainer engages the technoloy of the SimScope™ stethoscope to simulate pediatric heart, lung, and bowel sounds utilizing a large sound library. Using the provided SimScope™ stethoscope, users are able to access a large variety of pathological conditions in order to customize scenarios. By placing the SimScope™ over the anatomically correct locations of PAT the Pediatric Auscultation Trainer, the programmed sounds will be played through the scope, allowing for students to employ and enhance their diagnostic skills.
PAT includes auscuItation trainer,a new DeII Iaptop computer with PAT software installed, PAT Lesson Guide DV (English, Spanish or German) and Operator's Manual on DVD.
