A short sharp systole with rapid propulsion of the blood into the arteries will lead to a correspondingly sharp and energetic rebound or reactionary wave — that is to say, to increased depth of the dicrotic notch.
Page 269 - ... and diaphragm respectively, causes the transverse diameter to be the more considerable. In systole, on the other hand, with the contraction of the ventricles the walls become tense and resisting, the organ becomes rounded, the transverse diameter is diminished, the antero-posterior diameter increased.
