    Rhythmic heart sounds seems like it would capture the meaning. In the US, it's usually documented differently though. You'll often see an assessment which includes the phrase "Heart: RRR." RRR = regular rate and rhythm.

    The context might help us. Is this in a patient's chart or in some sort of patient education material?
