2 Anatomy


4 Inspection 1 Precardial projection and excavation 2 Apical impulse
3 Abnormal pulsations of precardium

5 Inspection 1 Precardial projection and excavation
congenital heart disease: tetralogy of Fallot Valvular heart disease MS,PS pericardial effusion (large , childhood)

6 The second right intercostal space(2nd ICS-RS)
aneurysm of aortic arch dilatation of ascending aorta 2) flat chest 3) pigeon chest/funnel chest

7 Inspection 2 Apical impulse *Normal:
position—the fifth left intercostal space cm medial to the midclavicular line range— cm in diameter

8 *Abnormal 1) Location #diaphragm:
“transverse position” upper,outward obesity ,child, pregnacy; ascites; tumor of abdominal cavity “vertical position” (thin, high, emphysema) inferior,inner


10 #mediastinum: one side pleural effusion or pneumothorax—to the healthy side one side atelectesis or pleural adhesion—to the affected

11 #enlargement of the heart
right ventricular dilatation –left or slightly upper left ventricular dilatation—left inferior LV &RV dilatation –left inferior (both side dilatation)


13 #Posture: recumbent position—upper
left lateral position—to the left 2-3cm right lateral position—to the right cm Dextrocardia: 5-ICS—RS

14 Inspection- apical impulse - abnormal 2)Intensity and extent changes

15 -apical impulse - abnormal
Inspection -apical impulse - abnormal 3)Inward impulse: apex excavation in the systole seen: adhensive pericarditis prominent RV hypertrophy

16 Inspection Abnomal pulsations of percardium
1)left third-forth intercostal space lateral to the sternum(3,4ICS-LS) seen: RV hypertrophy

17 2)hypoxiphoid process seen: difference deep inspiration RV hypertrophy ↑ abdominal aorta (aneurysm) ↓

18 3)basal part of the heart
2 ICS-LS: dilatation of the pulmonary artery or pulmonary hypertensin, occasionally healthy young man 2 ICS-RS: aneurysm of aortic arch or dilatation of ascending aorta

19 Palpation 1 Apical impulse and pulsation of precardium 2 Thrill

Palpation 1 Apical impulse and pulsation of precardium Exact position of apex The beginning of systole of ventricle first sound Heaving apex impulse: reliable of LV hypertrophy

21 2 Thrill One of characteristic signs of organic heart disease.
Mechanism : the flow of blood→narrowed orifice→vortices→ vibration→chest wall thrill-high frequency murmurs-low frequency Method:position,phase of cardiac cycle,clinical significance seen: CHD or valvular stenosis , occasionally insurficiency

22 CHD:congenital heart disease

24 Percussion Aim:to determine the size and shape of the heart .
Absolute dullness: contain no gas Relative dullness : real size

25 1 murneuver of percussion
patient in erect position –the pleximeter is vertical with the intercostal space patient in the recumbent position –the pleximeter is parallel with the intercostal space

26 2 order : left—right ; upwards ; inward
left margin : from 2-3 cm lateral to the apex beat up to the 2nd ICS right margin : one intercostal space higher than the border of liver dullness up to the 2nd ICS size: vertical distance from margin to the anterior midline
