Energy Signature -click is evidenced by its higher frequency
and short duration  in comparison with S1 and S2. S2 split.

 Power plot.                                      S1      cl        S2

Click is short, mid systolic and upper frequency is high 99+51= 150 Hz.
Click is differentiated from murmur by its short duration.
