Refers to the volume: a grade 1 murmur you can barely hear a grade 2 murmur is obvious a grade 3 murmur is louder a grade 4 murmur you can hear and feel it rumble on the chest a grade 5 murmur you can hear with just the rim of the stethoscope touching the chest a grade 6 murmur you can hear with the stethoscope off the chest the specfic treatment depends upon what is causing the murmur -

Grade 2/6 systolic murmur is usually an innocent one which does not require any treatment.
