two-beat RCR (RegularCardiac Rhythm)
heart sounds sounds heard over the cardiac region, produced by the functioning of the heart. The first, at the beginning of ventricular systole, is dull, firm, and prolonged, and heard as a “lubb” sound; the second, produced mainly by closure of the semilunar valves, is shorter and sharper than the first and is heard as a “dupp” sound; the third is usually audible only in youth; and the fourth is normally inaudible

Normally, the atria and ventricles contract in a coordinated fashion at a nice steady clip of 60–80 times per minute. This rate is set by the sinoatrial node, a group of cells in the right atrium that serves as the heart’s natural pacemaker. The sinoatrial node generates a pulse of electrical activity that spreads across the muscle cells of the atria, causing them to contract. The electrical charge also travels to another cluster of cells in the middle of the heart called the atrioventricular node that acts like a gatekeeper, causing a brief delay of about a tenth of a second. As a result, your heartbeat marches in a two-beat rhythm: first the atria contract, then the ventricles, over and over again
