3. The timing of a heart sound or murmur can be determined accurately from its relation to other observable events in the cardiac cycle. 4. It is often necessary to observe alterations in the timing or intensity of a heart sound during various physiologic and/or pharmacologic interventions (dynamic auscultation). 6 CHAPTER 1 (Palpable features in heavy line) FIGURE 1-2. Graphic representation of apical movements in health and disease. Heavy line indicates palpable features. (P2) pulmonary component of second heart sound; A: atrial wave, corresponding to a fourth heart sound (S4) or atrial gallop; F: filling wave, corresponding to a third heart sound (S3) or ventricular gallop.

It may function as an independent marker of myocardial disease; it may reflect anatomic, hemodynamic, molecular, ionic, and drug-induced cardiac abnormalities; and it may provide essential information for the proper diagnosis and therapy of many cardiac problems. In fact, it is the most commonly used laboratory procedure for the diagnosis of heart disease. VENTRICULAR DEPOLARIZATION AND REPOLARIZATION Depolarization occurs with an endocardium-to-epicardium sequence. It has been described as a moving wave with the positive charges in front of the negative charges.

Electrocardiographic Criteria for Left Ventricular Enlargement Voltage Criteria 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 6 11 22 22 25 42 100 100 96 100 98 96 51 95 45 55 35 93 85 95 22 CHAPTER 2 Spodick criterion (RV6 > RV5) claims a specificity of 100% and a sensitivity of more than 50%. According to Hernandez Padial, a total 12-lead QRS voltage > 120 mm is a good ECG criterion for LVH in systemic hypertension and is better than those most frequently used. The electrocardiographic diagnosis of LVH in the presence of complete LBBB or left anterior fascicular block (LAFB) is difficult, but most patients with these patterns will have echocardiographic LVH.
