LUB DUB GOES THE HEART...#medicalseries2

in health •  11 months ago

There is a growing list of heart related health problems in the world which has since caused reasons to understand the heart sound as much as the blood pressure which is sometimes referred to as arterial blood pressure, is the pressure exerted by circulating blood upon the walls of blood vessels, and is one of the principal vital signs (Guyton and hall medical physiology 12th edition)
listening to heart sound takes practice to perfect. Auscultation of the heart using stethoscope is part of heart examination. The stethoscope has served as a critical diagnostic tool in cardiovascular evaluation

The heart sounds are produced by the opening and closing of the valves and the vibration of blood against the walls of the heart and vessels. Normally two sounds – S1 and S2 - are heard, which correspond respectively to the familiar "lub dub" often used to describe the sounds. S1 is caused by the closure of the tricuspid and mitral valves (sometimes called the atrioventricular valves). Right ventricular contraction follows tricuspid valve closure, and left ventricular contraction follows mitral valve closure. The contractions (systole) occur almost simultaneously, although the mitral valve (left side) closes slightly before the tricuspid valve (right side). Normally this split of the sounds is so close that it is not audible, except occasionally at the apex of the heart.

There is also a third and a fourth heart sound, S3 and S4. They can occur in normal persons or be associated with pathological processes. Because of their cadence or rhythmic timing S3 and S4 are called gallops Gallops are low frequency sounds that are associated with diastolic filling. The gallop associated with early diastolic filling is the S3 and may be heard pathologically in such states as volume overload and left ventricular systolic dysfunction. The S4 is a late diastolic sound and may be heard in such pathologic states as uncontrolled hypertension.

not that you probably care but this particular post is nothing but blatant copy paste plagiarism.


Am afraid this very post isn't, the said post have been retracted and repudiated and due credit and citation properly attributed. Tender apologies for any wrong doings as it should never be seen any where near our commuinty. matters of this nature, where ones integrity is questioned, i take full responsibility


To be fair he did cite a reference. Either way, there's not much I can do about it unless I want to spend an forgiveable amount of time trying to code a function that'll check each post for X requirements, and then search the web for plagiarism.

It's just not worth the countless weeks it would take to program that. Not to mention, I don't have the required knowledge to input such a function.
Thank you for making me aware though, I'm sure a lot of other users are doing the exact same thing.


When reported by a user, since you evidently read your comments received you could look, as you have done, evaluate, and then remove the vote if you deem it to be theft of any nature. You must be aware of the growing backlash toward vote bots that support this type of content. But your vote, your choice. Have a good day.


You do have a fair point. Thank you for your input.
But seeing recent replies and going through upvoted posts are two very different things! :P
I will however see if there's something I can come up with that might work.

Congratulations! This post has been upvoted from the communal account, @minnowsupport, by justiceweje from the Minnow Support Project.

I'm sorry, but the whole thing is just a copy and paste job. If you find an article that you like let your followers at least know why you like the article, pick a small part of the article to quote, then tell us why we should read the whole article or what the article made you feel or why you chose the article. This is just nothing other than an attempt at buying votes from up vote bots that don't check your integrity of which you have very little it would appear. So no vote, and a report to steam cleaners.
