Physical examination can yield valuable diagnostic clues in a patient suspected of ischaemic heart disease. Examination during chest pain is especially informative. The haemodynamic abnormalities which accompany angina pectoris may precipitate elevation of blood pressure, pulsus alternans, pulsus bigeminus, abnormal precordial pulsations, a fourth heart sound or a systolic bruit; all of these may subsequently disappear with cessation of the anginal attack. Careful technique of examination, especially in detecting a fourth heart sound, is essential.
