The patient's position is standing.


Exercise increases both the heart rate and the intensity of the first heart sound. Systole and diastole have equal duration with a heart rate of 120 BPM.

Conditions such as fever, stress, and hyperthyroidism can also increase the intensity of the first heart sound.

Use the stethoscope's diaphragm to auscultate these sounds.
