English term or phrase: heaves and thrusts
Again, the exact terms used by doctors! We are OK with thrill ("tril").

A word used to describe one of the phenomena that can be felt under the hand when laid on the precordium.

"Lightly place the flat palmar aspect of your hand on the precordium. Start at the base and move down over the heart, feeling for heaves, thrusts, or thrills, which are palpable murmurs."
