Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is currently the leading cause of death in many developed countries. This paper summarizes key requirements in CVD diagnosis and provides an overview of current and emerging CVD monitoring techniques, which could help reduce CVD mortality and cost, and improve the follow-up of CVD patients. The potential of auscultation for CVD assessment is discussed, in the light of advances in digital signal processing, wireless signal communications, sensor miniaturization, and the continued challenges in elucidating the mechanisms of heart sound genesis and propagation.
