Aortic Stenosis - Severe #1 | Lessons with Audio and Video | #7

This is a simulation of Aortic Stenosis - Severe taken at the second right intercostal space.
  • S1 is normal.
  • S2P is increased suggesting an elevated left sided filling pressure.
  • An S4 gallop indicates the presence of a non-compliant left ventricle.
A late peaking, diamond-shaped, systolic murmur is present. The EKG shows evidence of LVH. Look at the cardiac animation. It shows left ventricular hypertrophy and a thickened and minimally mobile aortic valve. Note the Doppler-plume, which represents systolic turbulent flow across a stenotic aortic valve.
