palpation of pulses 30 secs with regular rhythm, 1-2 mins with irreg
apical pulse/PMI 5th interspace midclavicular vertical line
brachial pulse best in infants
radial pulse most common monitoring site
(N) adult HR 70 bpm; range 60-80 bpm
(N) newborn HR 120 bpm; range 70-170 bpm
tachycardia >100 bpm
bradycardia <60 bpm
irregular pulse variations in force and frequenc; may be due to arrhythmias, myocarditis
weak, thready pulse stroke volume, cardiogenic shock
bounding, full pulse shortened ventricular systole and decreased peripheral p°; aortic insufficiency

bicuspid valve 5th (L) ICS, midclavicular area
S1 sound "lub" (N) closure mitral &tricuspid valves; beginning of systole; dec in 1st degree heart block
S2 sound "dub" (N) closure aortic & pulmonic valves; end of systole; dec in aortic stenosis
S3 sound assoc with ventricular filling; occurs soon after S2
S3 sound congestive (LV) heart failure in older individuals
S4 sound assoc with ventricular filling and atrial contraction; occurs just before S1
S4 CAD, MI, aortic stenosis, or chronic HPN
systolic murmur bet S1 & S2. may be normal or may indicate valvular dse (mitral valve prolapse)
diastolic murmur bet S2 and S1. Usu indicates valvular dse
