2 The First Heart Sound (S 1 ) Chapter 7 Ara G. Tilkian, MD, FACC Instructor Patricia L. Thomas, MBA, RCIS

3 Outline Components of S 1 How to recognize S 1 at Rapid Heart Rate Physiological Splitting of S 1 Differential Diagnosis S 1 as a Single Sound Factors Influencing the Intensity of S 1

4 Components of S 1 Marks the mitral (M 1 )and tricuspid (T 1 ) closure Loudest heart sound High frequency components Vibrations set up in the valve cusps, chordae, papillary muscles and ventricular walls before aortic ejection

5 Where to Listen Listen with the diaphragm & bell of the stethoscope at the apex & 4 th left intercostal space

6 How to Recognize S 1 at Rapid Heart Rates During Auscultation Slow Heart Rates –Defines the onset of systole which is of shorter duration than diastole Rapid Heart Rates > 130 b/m –Palpate the Carotid artery: S 1 precedes the palpable arterial upstroke –S 2 immediately follows this pulse

8 Differential Diagnosis Sounds of the Cardiac Cycle In Perspective Pathological Splitting of S 1 The S 4 -S 1 Combination S 1 Followed by an Ejection Sound The Presystolic Murmur-S 1 Combination

9 Sounds of the Cardiac Cycle in Perspective

10 Physiological Splitting of S 1

11 Factors Influencing the Intensity of S 1 Any condition that increases the force of ventricular contraction Shortens, the PR interval Brings the heart closer to the chest wall makes S 1 louder (loud in children and young adults) When heart rate is normal, a loud S1 should alert the examiner of a possible short PR interval. Ventricular Contractility Pathological alteration of the cardiovascular system

12 Ventricular Contractility Influence by the contractility of the Left Ventricle than by the Right Ventricle –Enhanced Contractility S1 is accentuated (anemia, fever, pregnancy, exercise, anxiety) –Poor Contractility Decrease in the rate of pressure rise in the left ventricle, the first sound softens. (MI, cardiomypathies, shock)

13 The PR Interval Reflects AV conduction time The time between atrial and ventricular contraction The shorter the PR interval, the louder the first heart sound (mitral valve leaflets are wide open and deep within the ventricle when contraction begins causing the leaflets to close forcefully. The longer the PR interval, the softer the first sound The PR interval directly influences the position of valve leaflets at the onset of ventricular systole

15 Mitral Stenosis Mobile mitral cusp, one of the first and most consistent diagnostic clues is a typically loud and slapping heart sound. The loud S1 of mitral stenosis is caused by the closure of the mitral valve occurring on the steep upslope of the LV pressure curve during isometric contraction. Short PR interval

18 Aortic Insufficiency S 1 is diminished or absent in patients Mitral valve may be prematurely closed when systole begins because of a long PR interval or high Lvedp Pressures within the aorta a ventricle approach each other during diastole, isovolumic systole is either short or absent, causing a softening of S 1

19

20 Mitral Regurgitation S 1 absent or weak Valve leaflets may fail to seal the AV opening during ventricular systole because of structural defects or widening of the valve ring. Dissipation of LV pressure and the LA Decrease in the rate of rise of LV pressure weakens the intensity of S 1

21 The heart has been sectioned to reveal the mitral valve as seen from above in the left atrium. The mitral valve demonstrates the typical "fish mouth" shape with chronic,

22 Left Atrial Myxoma S1 is loud in patients with mobile myxoma of the LA because of a delay in mitral valve closure Echocardiography can provide a definitive diagnosis Mechanism is similar to a short PR interval when the mitral leaflets are widely opened immediately before the onset of ventricular systole
