mitral regurg
holosystolic high pitched blowing murmur
loudest at apex; often radiates to L axilla
aortic stenosis
cres/decres systolic ejection murmur following ejection click. LV >> aortic pressure during systole; radiates to carotids, apex
heard best in 2-3rd right interspace close to sternum
holosystolic murmur best heard along L lower sternal border and generally radiates to R lower sternal border
may be best heard at 4-6 L intercostal spaces
mitral prolapse
late systolic murmur with midsystolic click. most frequent valvular lesion
aortic regurg
immediate high pitched blwoing diastolic murmur; wide pulse pressure
mitral stenosis
follows opening snap; delayed rumbling late diastolic murmur. LA >> LV pressure during diastole
tricuspid stenosis
gets louder with inspiration
continuous machine like murmur
loudest at S2
aortic regurg or aortic stenosis
mitral regurg or mitral stenosis
increases blood to R heart, decreases blood to L heart
pulmonic regurg
early diastoic decres mumur heard best along the L sternum
pulmonic stenosis
cres/decres systolic murmur best heart in 2-3rd L interspaces close to sternum
tricuspid regurg
pansystolic murmur best heard along the L lower sternal border and generally radiates to right lower sternal border
hear at 4-6 IC spaces
