Flashcards in Harvey Deck (39)
what generates heart sounds?
blood velocity changes / valve closure
what are the good and bad causes of a split heart sound?
good - larger volume
bad - slower contraction speed
S3 - when, sound, why
when - early-mid diastolic
sound - groaning
why - ventricular wall noise from resistance to filling
S4 - when, why
when - late diastolic, end of ventricular filling
why - ventricular wall resistance to atrial kick
what are the best ways to hear S3 and S4?
apex with the bell in left lateral recumbent position
0 - 5 mm Hg
30 / 5
pulmonary mean pressure
the pulmonary wedge pressure is equal to the pressure in what chamber? what is the pcwp?
what is the order of naming convention for heart murmurs?
grade - cycle - intensity - radiation
what are the left sided systolic murmurs?
what are the right sided systolic murmurs?
what are the causes of aortic stenosis?
congenital disease (bicuspid valve)
is aortic stenosis a left-sided or right-sided murmur? is it systolic or diastolic?
what is the cause of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy?
left ventricular outflow tract obstruction
is aortic regurg a left-sided or right-sided murmur? is it systolic or diastolic?
what are the causes of aortic regurg?
congenital (bicuspid valve)
is mitral stenosis a left-sided or right-sided murmur? is it systolic or diastolic?
where does mitral stenosis radiate?
what are the causes of mitral stenosis?
does mitral regurg permit backward flow during systole or diastole?
what are the causes of mitral regurg?
MVP from myxomatous degeneration
endocarditis, rheumatic fever
MI with papillary rupture
when is MV prolapse heard?
what is an austin flint murmur?
severe aortic regurgitation
is an austin flint murmur systolic or diastolic? where is it best heard?
mid-diastolic or pre-systolic
what does an austin flint murmur sound like?
low pitched rumbling
what is the direction of flow in an austin flint murmur?
mixing of antegrade mitral valve blood and regurgitant blood from the aorta
what does a pericardial friction rub sound like? how is it heard best?
leaning forward and exhaling
