Conversely, pressure loads (such as aortic stenosis or hypertension) tend to displace the impulse more upward and medially—at least initially. Still, a failing and decompensated ventricle, independent of its etiology, will typically present with a downward and lateral shift in point of maximal impulse (PMI). Although not too sensitive, this finding is very specific for cardiomegaly, low ejection fraction, and high pulmonary capillary wedge pressure. Correlation of the PMI with anatomic landmarks (such as the left anterior axillary line) can be used to better characterize the displaced impulse.
VSD murmurs are best heard along the left lower sternal border, often radiating left to right across the chest. VSD murmurs always start immediately after S1. 14. What is a systolic regurgitant murmur? One characterized by a pressure gradient that causes a retrograde blood flow across an abnormal opening. This can be (1) a ventricular septal defect, (2) an incompetent mitral valve, (3) an incompetent tricuspid valve, or (4) fistulous communication between a high-pressure and a low-pressure vascular bed (such as a patent ductus arteriosus).
Carotids—Slow upstroke to a delayed peak. Auscultation—A2 diminished or paradoxically ejection systolic murmur radiating to carotids. Cold extremities. S1 ES SM Aortic Regurgitation A2 S1 SM DM Inspiration A2 P2 S1 SM Inspiration A2 S1 SM Often associated with Marfan’s syndrome, rheumatiod spondylitis. Precordium—Apex displaced laterally and anteriorly; thrill often palpable along left sternal border and in the jugular notch. Carotids—Double systolic wave. Auscultation—Decrescendo diastolic murmur along left sternal border; M1 and A2 are increased.
