Indeed, anything that raises cardiac output--fever, anxiety, exercise, anemia--will increase turbulence of the blood and may temporarily result in a grade 3 or 4 murmur crossing the aortic or pulmonic valve.
Patients with significant valvular regurgitation other than AR (greater than mild valvular regurgitation of another valve), any systolic gradient >10 mm Hg across the aortic or pulmonic valve, evidence of any degree of mitral or tricuspid stenosis, congenital heart disease, or non sinus rhythm were excluded.
In Eisenmenger syndrome there may not be a tricuspid regurgitant jet so the presence of pulmonary hypertension must then be inferred from the findings of a large nonrestrictive intracardiac communication, a short time to peak velocity in the pulmonary artery, midsystolic notching on the pulmonic valve M Mode and the pattern of ventricular septal motion (8).
The tricuspid and pulmonic valves are affected less frequently.
