Why can I hear my heart beating slowly?

Sometimes our hearts beat slower than 60 beats per minute. This is called bradycardia. For some people, like athletes and healthy, young adults, this heart rate could be normal. But for others, it could be caused by your brain and other organs not getting enough oxygen to function like they should.

How do you make a sound effect heartbeat?

Bare your chest (!), position a microphone pointing at your shoulder region and then make a quick inward pull with your arms and hands and stop abruptly. Keeps you warm as well 🙂 Any kind of thump run through a lowpass filter sequenced in a reasonably rhythmic sequence will give you the effect.

What is the lub-dub sound in your heart?

A healthy heart makes a lub-dub sound with each beat. This sound comes from the valves shutting on the blood inside the heart. The first sound (the lub) happens when the mitral and tricuspid valves close.

What does a healthy heartbeat sound like?

A normal heartbeat has two sounds, a lub (sometimes called S1) and a dub (S2). These sounds are caused by the closing of valves inside your heart. If there are problems in your heart, there may be additional or abnormal sounds.

What causes dub sound?

The second heart sound, called S2, makes a “dub” sound caused by the closure of the semilunar (aortic and pulmonary) valves following ventricular systole. S2 is split because aortic valve closure occurs before pulmonary valve closure.

Which is louder lub or dub?

However, lub is the first sound which is fairly loud and is due to the closure of the atrioventricular valves, whereas the dup is the second sound which is softer and is due to the closure of the aortic and pulmonary valves. The lub corresponds with ventricular systole whereas the dup with atrial systole.

Is it okay to have a quiet heartbeat?
