Dutch term or phrase: s1 s2 $
This sentence is taken from a discharge summary about a patient with cancer. It is in the Physical Examination section.
I know that s1 and s2 are the heart sounds, but am unsure what the $ signifies.
I have seen it in other Dutch texts, so think it must be used as standard.

Many thanks in advance

s1 s2 no other (heart) sounds
Explanation:
My guess would be that this refers to no other heart sounds, i.e. no S3 or S4 (ref. http://www.chfpatients.com/faq/s3s4.htm). "Bijgeluiden" in this context could then refer to other abnormal heart sounds.

Split / differentiated would be another option, e.g.

"Additional sounds The differentiation of 3rd sounds, 4th sounds, opening snaps and widely split S1 or S2 can be daunting."
