The Heart Sound Recorder (HSR) is a simple, highly effective, computer-based low risk general wellness monitor based on technology created in the 1930’s. It uses the principles of auscultation (sound) to acquire, display, record and save heart sounds in a graph form. When the graphs are reviewed by trained practitioner, they can reveal nutritional deficiencies.
How is the Test Performed?
The Heart Sound Recorder exam is a non-invasive test. The patient simply sits in a chair (with clothes on!) and a sensor is placed, over clothing, in four separate chest locations. Sounds from the four valves of the heart are then recorded. Once the test is complete, the practitioner can see the nutritional efficiency of the heart and systemic circulatory system. The actual test takes about five minutes.
