Heart sound

Heart sound

Area of auscultation

Area Of Auscultation

Area of auscultation1

Area Of Auscultation

  • Pulmonary valve second intercostal space, left upper sternal border

  • Aortic valve second intercostal space ,right upper sternal border

  • Mitral valve fifth intercostal space , left midclavicular line

  • Tricuspid valve fourth intercostal space, lower left sternal border

What we hear

What we hear ?

  • We have all heard the heart make the usual sounds.


  • Lub is the first sound or S1

  • Dub is the second heart sound or S2

Heart sound

Normal heart souands


First heart sound s1

First heart sound S1

The “lub” in the lub – dub.

  • This sound is primarily because of the closing of the bicuspid and tricuspid valves.

  • Anatomically they are located between the atria and the ventricles

  • They close because the ventricles contract

  • The Pulmonic and Aortic valves are opening and blood is being forced into the arteries

  • Its maximum intensity is at the apex

S1 abnormalities

S1 abnormalities

  • Loud S1

    Mitral stenosis

    Tachycardia /hyperkinetic status

  • Soft S1

    Mitral regurgitation

    Heart failure

  • Obesity

  • Shock

  • Pericardial effusion

Second heart sound s2

Second heart sound S2

S2 is the “dub” in the lub- dub

  • The sounds are because of the closing of the Pulmonic and Aortic valves as the pressure from the arteries is greater then the pressure in the ventricles.

  • This is the end of systole

S2 components

S2 components:

  • Has two components A2 and P2

  • Inspiration decreases intrathoracic pressure, increases RV filling

  • RV is relatively weak, and an increase in filling results in slower emptying

  • Inspiration delays P2, causing audible splitting of S2

  • P2 localized to pulmonary area while A2 audible all over the pericardium with max. intensity at aortic area

Heart sound


S2 abnormalities

S2 abnormalities

  • Loud P2

    Pulmonary hypertension

  • Soft P2

    Pulmonary stenosis

  • Loud A2

    Systemic hypertension

  • Soft A2

    Aortic stenosis

    Aortic regurgitation

Split abnormalities

Split abnormalities

  • Wide splitting

  • Delay pulmonic closure:

  • RBBB

  • Pulmonary hypertension

  • Pulmonic stenosis

  • Early aortic closure:

  • MR

  • Fixed splitting

    Atrial septal defect

  • Reversed splitting

  • Lf bundle branch block

  • Sever aortic stenosis

Heart sound




The time between the S1 and S2 sounds is:


The ventricles contracting

Blood flowing from the heart to the lungs and body

Blood flowing across the Pulmonic and Aortic valves



The time between S2 and S1 is :


The blood is flowing from the atria to the ventricles.

The blood flowing across the bicuspid and tricuspid valves.

The atrial contraction also occurs now

Third heart sound s3

Third heart sound S3

  • Is a low pitched early diastolic sound best heard with the bell at the apex.

  • also called ventricular gallop

  • Occure with rapid ventricular filling after the AV valves open.

  • It is best heard with the bell-side of the stethoscope at the apex of the heart

  • Causes

  • Normally in Children and during pregnancy

  • Pathological



Fourth heart sound s4

Fourth heart sound S4

  • Low pitched sound occurs at late diastole due to atrial contraction if ventricles are non complaint. Just before S1

  • Called a presystolic gallop or atrial gallop

  • It is always pathological

  • Causes:






  • These are abnormal sound and are longer duration s compared to heart sound produced due to the turbulence of blood flow through valves

  • Three Types:

    Systolic murmurs

    Diastolic murmurs

    Continuous machinary murmur

Ejection systolic murmur

Ejection systolic murmur

Pansystolic systolic murmur

Pansystolic systolic murmur

Mid diastolic murmur

Mid-Diastolic murmur

Early diastolic murmur

Early diastolic murmur

Continuous machinary murmur

Continuous machinary murmur
