heart sound cluename of heart sound
Term used to describe the change from a single S2 sound to two sounds (an A2 & P2). The A2 & P2 sounds vary with respiration.
Telemetry term for a steady alternation between a normal heart beat and a PVC
Telemetry term for the early phase of ventricular repolarization that is used to reveal if the heart is becoming ischemic.
Telemetry term used to describe multiple ectopic focci in the atria that are firing randomly. There is a loss of the p wave and there is no effective contraction.
High pitch sound produced by the turbulent flow against the closed aortic & pulmonary valves. Occurs at the beginning of ventricular diastole
Portion of the heart that will depolarize & hyperpolarize 60-100 times a minute. The primary regulator/pacemaker of heart rate.
Type of murmur caused by aortic insufficiency or mitral stenosis.
Click-murmur syndrome during mid systole that may be benign.
Sound produced by blood being forced into a stiff/hpertrophic ventricle. It occurs just after atrial contraction at the end of diastole & immediately before S1. (CHF/HTN)
Number of big boxes in a six second EKG strip
Term for when an R wave occurs on the T wave of the previous complex. Can be indicative of a lethal arrhythmia.
Telemetry term for a heart rhythm of 60-100 beats per minute, with the presence of a p wave.
Term used to describe the ability of areas of the heart to spontaneously depolarize & hyperpolarize.
Time in seconds represented by 5 big boxes on an EKG strip
A systolic ejection murmur that is greatest after S1 and disappears before S2 (dies in mid-systole). Non patholgocial.
Part of the heart that can take over pacemaker function, but will only depolarize & hyperpolarize 40-60 times a minute.
Telemetry term used to describe an ectopic focus in the wall of the atrium.
Part of the stethescope used to hear high pitch sounds
Sound cased by leaky valves, stenotic valves, or turbulent blood flow.
Telemetry term for the presence of extra p waves.
Time in seconds represented by 5 little boxes on an EKG strip.
Term used to describe an abnormal valve that is tight, narrowed, or fibrotic such that blood can't move through it well.
Telemetry term for a heart rhythm of more than 100 beats per minute.
Type of arrhythmia in which the rhythm fluctuates with respiration.
heart sound cluename of heart sound
Number of little boxes that equal one big box on an EKG strip
Telemetry term for 3 or more PVCs in a row at a rate of more than 100 beats per minute
Telemetry term used to describe a flat baseline lasting 1/10 second after the p wave.
Term for the combined presence of S3 & S4
Telemetry terrm used to describe atrial depolarization.
Telemetry terms used to describe ventricular repolarization
Part of the stethescope used to hear low pitch sounds
Murmur that occurs completely across the systolic interval (from S1 to the end of S3). Holosystolic/pansystolic sound that sometimes occurs after MI due to papillary muscle rupture
Term for PVC caused by several ectopic focci
Telemetry term used to describe ventricular depolarization.
Term for an early, large, spontaneous depolarization (by an ectopic focus) that wipes out the normal wave/electrical activity, resulting in a compensatory pause.
Term used to describe the rhythm produced by an ectopic focus depolarizing & hyperpolarizing at a rate of 20-40 times per minute.
Telemetry term used to describe multiple focci all firing randomly, such that there is no organized contraction of the heart or wave of polarization. The ventricle is quivering.
Time in seconds represented by 1 little box on an EKG strip.
Type of murmur caused by mitral regurgitation/insufficiency, aortic stenosis, or innocent flow murmur.
Low pitch sound sometimes heard at the beginning of diastole after S2. Common in young athletes, but could be a harbinger of CHF in adults.
Term for the merging of S3 & S4 that may occur at rapid heart rates
High pitch sound produced by turbulent flow against the closed mitral & tricuspid valves. Occurs during ventricular systole.
Term used to describe an abnormal valve that cannot completely close & now leaks. The leaflets of the valve may be calcified, damaged, or have growths on them.
Term for PVC caused by a single ectopic focus
Telemetry term for a heart rhythm of less than 60 beats per minute.
Time in seconds represented by one big box on an EKG strip
Part of the heart that will take over pacemaker function at a rate of 20-40 depolarizations & hyperpolarizations per minute. There will be no P wave, & has abnormal QRS complex.
