This effect is not seen in incomplete right bundle branch block since the onset of right ventricular systole is not delayed. The same phenomenon pertains in left bundle branch block, where the first heart sound is usually normally split because the onset of left ventricular systole is not delayed. In any event, splitting is difficult to detect in left bundle branch block because the mitral component of the first heart sound is so frequently soft. Wide splitting of the first heart sound is a characteristic feature of Ebstein anomaly, where delay in closure is produced by the redundant leaflets, resulting in the so-called "sail sound".

FIGURE 37 Systolic Murmurs at its maximum. The murmur then diminishes in intensity and ends before the semilunar valves close. Since left ventricular systole is generally shorter that right, aortic ejection murmurs are generally shorter than pulmonary. Because ejection murmurs are frequently preceded by an ejection sound, there is no true auscultatory gap audible between the first heart sound and the onset of the murmur. Clinically, therefore, the diagnosis of an ejection murmur is more readily made by noting that the murmur ends before A2.
