Pulmonary Area The pulmonary area should refer to the pulmonary artery rather than the pulmonary (pulmonic) valve. The murmurs of pulmonary stenosis and insufficiency, the murmur caused by increased flow or dilatation of the pulmonary artery, the pulmonary ejection click, the pulmonary component of the second sound (P component of II), and the murmur of patent ductus arteriosus are heard best here. The pulmonary area is formed by the Cardiac apical impulse (palpation of the precordium) S1 S2 S1 S2 Hyperdynamic impulse (hypertrophic cardiomyopathy) Normal S1 S2 Diffuse and sustained (left ventricular dysfunction) second left interspace near the sternal edge and extends upward to the clavicle and downward to the third left interspace near the sternal margin.

Consequently, the parasympathetic postganglionic fibers are relatively short and circumscribed in their distribution. Afferent and efferent fibers probably run in all the sympathetic and the parasympathetic cardiac nerves, although afferents may not be present in the superior cervical sympathetic cardiac nerves. Many afferent vagal fibers from the heart and great vessels are involved in reflexes depressing cardiac activity, and in some animals these fibers are aggregated in a separate “depressor nerve” and in humans may run in cardiac branches of the laryngeal nerves.
