"In the physical examination of the heart, the old adage, 'you only see what you look for' holds true with modification to, 'you only hear what you listen for.' Although a very experienced clinician may listen to a polyglot of noises, compare them to an internal matrix and make a correct diagnosis with, 'that sounds like...,' for us mere mortals, proper auscultation requires that you listen carefully and thoughtfully to one thing at a time."
