jump to exam page:
What a weird question. I could definitely hear a fixed split heart sound. And it was loudest over the pulmonic valve too which makes it even more of a dirty question. But I guess what I was actually hearing was an S3 heart sound.
@the260guy I believe the splitting is being heard only during inspiration, making this normal physiologic splitting. Perhaps that's just my ears.
don't have adobe and couldn't download it, so I just chose whatever, but your explanation suddenly makes me feel dumb but grateful! Loving your tips! @benwhite_dotcom
@the260guy Have to agree with wutuwantbruv. I interpreted this as a physiological splitting, had the opportunity to hear it in a newborn as well.
Definitely S3. FA 2020 pg 287 "but can be normal in children, young adults, athletes, and pregnancy"
I swear to god it wasnt just during inspiration but what the hell do i know
I thought I heard a "LOUD S2" but thats what happens when you read FA 30,000 times.
I swear I had the volume to the max and couldn't hear shit. Then when I came back the second time to get the answers, it was working; but my dumb ass was hearing a skip beat. No dumbass, that's just the loop.

I’m going to point out that a normal healthy kid with no cardiac history or symptoms and no family history of sudden cardiac death for a pre-sports physical is probably going to have a benign exam no matter what you think you hear.
