"He was in a state of acute confusional anxiety throughout."


"A vibrat systolic mur was discovered..."

Abbreviation for vibratory systolic murmur.

Victoria, I saw bruit at first, but compare 'mur' with 'much' in the line above, ignoring the dot above 'mur'

also looking on the internet, Vibratory Systolic Murmur makes sense

I definitely see bruit. It could make sense if you use "bruit" with its french meaning of "sound" or "noise".

I also think the word is bruit

Oxford English Dictionary:

'An abnormal sound heard in stethoscopic examination, esp. of the heart or a blood vessel.'
which makes complete sense in the context.
