Here's my question, can a patient have an irregular heart rate and rhythm but have a normal S1 and S2 with no murmur? The patient does have recurrent atrial fibrillations. Thanks.

Subject: murmur "lows" and a T S1, S2 somewhat irregular?????

I have two questions on a cardiology transcription I am doing, if you could help. Dictator first says "heart: a T S1, S2 somewhat irregular", the t is throwing me off...what is she meaning by that. Also, she says he has a grade 1-2/6 murmur "lows" emphasis on the S so low SS, if that makes any sense...any ideas on what either of these things mean? I appreciate the help!
