    i think it is first heart sound
    due to closure of valves

    More on murmurs

    On auscultation there is a crescendo-decrescendo systolic ejection murmur. ECG shows LVH. The patient's ventricular systolic pressure is much higher than the systolic pressure in the arteries. What type of cardiac lesion is this?
    I used to pray and pray for a bike and never got one. Later I learned that God doesn't work that way... so I went out and stole a bike and asked God for forgiveness.

    Your patient has a bp reading of 180/80 mm Hg, and presents with water-hammer pulses. ECG suggests LVH, and there are narrow, deep Q waves. Auscultation reveals a diastolic high-pitched blowing murmur. Name the cardiac lesion.
