A 46-year-old member asked:
Is heart disease picked up best by electrocardiography, auscultation, or palpation and why?

Dr. Robert Vogt Lowell answered
Specializes in Pediatric Cardiology
All of the above: In addition to a thorough physical exam, a full and detailed history is as important. Heart disease can be due to electrical abnormalities, structural abnormalities or a combination of these so you will probably not appreciate the entire picture if you concentrate on a single diagnostic approach or modality.
