In this manner, what murmur radiates to the carotids?
Radiation. While murmurs are usually most intense at one specific listening post, they often radiate to other listening posts or areas of the body. For example, the murmur of aortic stenosis frequently radiates to the carotid arteries and the murmur of mitral regurgitation radiates to the left axillary region.
Secondly, why do murmurs radiate? Radiation. As the term implies, the radiation of a murmur is the track the sound tends to travel or radiate. Aortic murmurs radiate along the aortic outflow from the left lower sternal border, to the right second intercostal space, to the right infraclavicular area. Tricuspid insufficiency radiates to the venous system
Also, where does aortic stenosis murmur radiate to?
The aortic stenosis murmur is diamond-shaped and systolic and radiates along the aortic outflow tract. The peaking of the murmur moves toward S2 as the valve area narrows. Classically, the aortic stenosis murmur is heard best at the right upper sternal border (where it is harsh and noisy).
What murmur increases with squatting?
Squatting: Increases preload. Squatting increases the intensity of aortic stenosis, mitral stenosis, aortic regurgitation, and mitral regurgitation. It decreases the strength of murmurs due to hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy and mitral valve prolapse.
