The USMLE usually brings clinical stuff with murmurs that either increase with inspiration or with expiration.

Instead of trying to memorize each one of these a good rule of thumb is to know this fact.

Murmurs that increase in intensity with expiration originate from the left side of the heart (mitral or aortic).

Murmurs that increase in intensity with inspiration originate from the right side of the heart (tricuspid or pulomanry)
