Atrial What is the best patient position to hear S3 and S4? Supine? Semi Fowlers? Left lateral position? Lying in the left lateral position shifts the heart closest to the chest wall Which of the four heart sounds is the only one heard during systole? S1 Systolic murmur is heard after which valves close? AV valves Systolic murmur does it occur between S1 and S2 or between S2 and S1? Between S1 and S2 Diastolic murmur is heard after which valves close? Semilunar valves (Aortic and Pulmonic) Does Diastolic murmur occur between S1 and S2 or between S2 and S1 between S2 and S1 What is Hemodynamics? The Physics of Blood flow What is Compliance? The amount a vessel will stretch due to a change in pressure. Which is more compliant veins or arteries? Veins-Think vericose veins how they stretch Which is less compliant veins or arteries? Arteries-Think of hardening of the arteries What is Isovolumetric contraction? The point at which all 4 heart valves are closed for an instant just after the ventricles have filled Does Isovolumetric contraction happen during Systole or Diastole? At the beginning of Systole Does Isovolumetric contraction happen before or after S1? After S1 and before S2 What is Isovolumetric relaxation? The point at which all 4 heart valves are closed for an instant just after the atrium have filled

Does Isovolumetric relaxation happen during Systole or Diastole? At the beginning of Diastole Does Isovolumetric relaxation happen before or after S1? Before S1 and after S2 What does a pericardial friction rub sound like? Soft and Quiet? or High pitched and scratchy like sandpaper? High pitched and scratchy like sandpaper What patient position is best to hear a pericardial friction rub? Supine taking a deep breath in? or Sitting up, leaning forward, with breath held in expiration? Sitting up, leaning forward, with breath held in expiration. What is a mnemonic to remember the order of the valves in the heart? Tissue Paper My Assets=Tricuspid, Pulmonic from the right side, Mitral, Aortic from the left side. Where do you listen to the Aortic valve sound? 2nd intercostal space at the right sternal border. Where do you listen to hear the Pulmonic valve sound? 2nd left intercostal space Where do you listen to hear Erb's point? 3rd left intercostal space Where do you listen to hear the Tricuspid valve sound? 4th left intercostal space Where do you listen to hear the Mitral valve sound? 5th left intercostal space Where do you auscultate the Apical pulse? 5th left intercostal space midclavicular line Where do you palpate the point of maximal impulse (PMI) or apical impulse? 5th left intercostal space midclavicular line What is a mnemonic for remembering where to listen to the valve sounds? APE To Man=Aortic, Pulmonic, Erb's point, Tricuspid, Mitral, starting from 2nd right intercostal space across to 2nd left and then down Why do you listen to the heart valves in a different location than where the valves are?
