valve stenosis
stiff valve, only small opening
causes ventricular hyptertrophy
vavle regurgitation
incomplete closure of valve
causes backflow of blood
S1
closure of mitral valve; left ventrical contraction
S2
closure aortic valve; left vertricular pressure drops
S3
rapid vent filling (early diastole)
Kentucky
S4
atrial contraction (last diastole)
Tennessee
aortic valve heard
right upper sternal border
