The Cardiac Ausculatory Recording Database (CARD): an Internet-based software Program and Digital Heart Sound Recording Database for Teaching and Study of Cardiac Auscultation

The Cardiac Auscultatory Recording Database (CARD) was also developed. Developed using the Microsoft Access relational database program, CARD is available online through the World Wide Web. CARD contains digitized heart sound recordings collected from patients at the Pediatric Cardiology Echocardiography Laboratory at the Johns Hopkins Outpatient Center. To date, the database contains over 2500 individual recordings from over 350 patients, representing 300 unique heart murmurs. At least one third of the patients have no detectable heart disease by echocardiogram, with roughly 25% of the "normal" cases having at least one innocent murmur. Among the other patients with abnormal echocardiograms, a wide range of diagnoses are represented, including many common congenital lesions.
