    lets see think like this the valves on the bottom the mitral and tricupsid valves in stenosis it is mid diasolic murmur and in regurg pansystolic murmur
    then the valves on the top aortic and pulmonary in stenosis it is pansystolic murmur and in regurg of aortic it is mid diastolic murmur and in pulmonary regurg it is early diastolic

    then u must know that the valves on the right the murmurs will inc in intensity in inspiration and at valves on the left they will inc in intensity at expiration

    to build the concept on why these murmurs are diastolic or systolic remember that diastole is the period of relaxation where the heart fills and systole is the period of contraction where the heart ejects its blood
    hope this helps
