Heart Sounds Drill 1

Early systolic vs. late systolic murmur


This drill will contrast a cycle with an early systolic murmur with a cycle with a late systolic murmur.

An early systolic murmur has a decrescendo appearance while a late diastolic murmur has a crescendo appearance.

Listen as long as you want.When you are confident that you can detect the difference, move on to the test. In the test we will play cycles randomly and ask you to tell which is which.
