    The closure of the mitral and tricuspid valves at the onset of systole.  
    • A. 

      S1 Sound

    • B. 

      Systole

    • C. 

      Diastole

    • D. 

      S2 Sound

  • 3. 
    The closure of the aortic and pulmonary valves and heard during diastole.  
    • A. 

      S2 Sound

    • B. 

      S1 Sound

    • C. 

      Systole

    • D. 

      S4 sound

  • 4. 
    A low frequency caused by ventricular wall vibration when atrial blood rushes into the ventricles in early diastole.  It is normal in young individuals, but indicative of ventricular dysfunction  or volume overload.   
    • A. 

      S3 Sound

    • B. 

      S2 Sound

    • C. 

      S1 Sound

    • D. 

      Diastole

  • 5. 
    A low frequency caused by atrial contraction  into a “stiff” ventricle in late diastole which is often present in left ventricular hypertrophy and fibrotic myocardium.  
    • A. 

      S4 Sound

    • B. 

      S2 Sound

    • C. 

      Diastole

    • D. 

      S3 Sound

  • 6. 
    The sound generated by the turbulent flow of blood  within the heart
    • A. 

      Murmur

    • B. 

      S1 Sound

    • C. 

      S2 Sound

    • D. 

      Systole

      S4 Sound

    • D. 

      S2 Sound

  • 8. 
    Murmurs arise from what mechanisms?      
    • A. 

      flow across a partial obstruction

    • B. 

      Increased blood flow through a normal structure

    • C. 

      Ejection into a dilated chamber

    • D. 

      regurgitant flow across an incompetent valve

    • E. 

      Shunting of blood from a high pressure to a lower pressure vascular chamber, through an abnormal route

    • F. 

      Flow through the heart through the atrial valves
