Mitral Valve Prolapse:
I am confused with the click murmur associated with MVP and its going against my senses. Can somebody help me plz?

Gojan says that when preload is increased the murmur gets closer to S2 and when preload is decreased the murmur gets closer to S1.

To me it seems the otherway. When preload is increased that means EDV and EDP are increased. Meaning the prolapse will start earlier in systole and hence closer to S1. Likewise when the preload is decreased that means EDV and EDP are reduced. Meaning the prolapse will start delayed.

I am sure I am missing some mechanics somewhere. Please can somebody help me understand this?? May God bless you for that!
