It actually means decreased heart sounds. Thanks though!

disagree  eleni sakka: I think that the term 'thoracic sounds' describes sounds heard from a stethoscope resulting from lung movements rather than heart beats

  -> as you say in your response, given the limited context, it is hard to tell.

heart murmur


Explanation:
Normal heart sounds are called S1 and S2. They are the "lubb-dupp" sounds that are thought of as the heartbeat. These sounds are produced when the heart valves close.
Murmurs are blowing, whooshing, or rasping sounds. They are the result of vibrations caused by turbulent blood flow patterns. This can happen when a valve does not close tightly (such as with mitral regurgitation), or when the blood is flowing through a narrowed opening or a stiff valve (such as with aortic stenosis).
A murmur does not necessarily indicate a disease or disorder, and all heart disorders do not cause murmurs.
Murmurs are classified ("graded") depending on their ability to be heard by the examiner. The grading is on a scale with grade I being barely detectable. An example of a murmur description is a "grade II/VI murmur." (This means the murmur is grade 2 on a scale of 1 to 6).

From your sentence, I think the term
'βυθιότητα τόνων' describes heart murmur grading
Maybe if you put a bigger sentence in your explanation would help find the correct term.
I enclosed a reference I found in the internet.
Hope it helps

heart murmur


Explanation:
Heard by a physician through a stethoscope, a heart murmur is an abnormal heart sound that results from the turbulent flow of blood through the heart. Although many heart murmurs are unassociated with disease, they may also stem from a cardiovascular problem such as the following:
Valvular stenosis:A narrowing of one of the heart’s four valves, which causes blood flow to become more turbulent as it is forcefully pumped through the smaller opening.
Mitral valve prolapse:A condition in which the flaps of the mitral valve (located between the left atrium and left ventricle) are too large and cannot close properly. As a result, blood may leak back through the valve (mitral regurgitation), when it should only move forward.
Aortic aneurysm:The dilation, bulging or ballooning out of part of the wall of the aorta. Untreated, it puts the patient at risk for a ruptured aneurysm.
Innocent murmurs (sometimes called Still's murmurs) do not represent any long-term heart-related problems.
