as I understand it,

tardus et parvus is Latin for late and small, referring to the late and small waveform of the carotid pulse in aortic stenosis.

My self-esteem is a bit too far into the black these days, so I'll freely
confess my ignorance:

What is the origin of the term "tardus parvus" waveform? The tardus part is
obvious enough, I guess, suggesting delay, but what about parvus? I mean
really?

Thanks.
