Dyspnea is a common presenting complaint in the emergency department (ED).
Rapid identification of heart failure as the etiology leads to early implementation of
targeted therapies. Although having only intermediate sensitivity, the S3 is a highly
specific finding among older adults with heart failure. Identification of an S3 by routine
auscultation can be problematic given the chaotic and noisy ED environment, patient c
omorbid conditions, and intolerance of ideal positioning for auscultation. Technologies
using computerized analysis of digitally recorded heart tones have recently been developed
to aid the clinician with bedside detection of abnormal heart sounds. Data using these
technologies and their applications in the ED are reviewed as well as implications for
future use and research.
