Difference Between Premature Atrial Contraction And Heart Murmur
Yes, but...: There are many reasons and/or heart defects which can be responsible for a heart murmur. An atrial septal defect (ASD) is one of them. This is a hole in the upper chambers in the heart which allows extra blood to pass into the right side of the heart. This extra volume load causes mild turbulence when it travels to the lungs, thus causing the murmur.See 1 more doctor answer
Very premature is a condition in which a baby is delivered between 28 and 31 weeks' gestation. Depending on how premature, how sick, and how lucky or unlucky a baby is, he can get brain problems, cerebral palsy, blindness, deafness, developmental problems, learning disabilities, severe lung diseases, infection and loss of some intestines, etc... Babies who are only moderately premature usually ...Read more
AV Block?: Yes, it is very possible that the slow rate of ventricular contractions cannot keep up with a faster atrial contraction rate. It is an a-v block.
Common problems: A heart murmur is blood flow that can be heard with a stethoscope. This can be normal flow or abnormal flow. Tachycardia is the finding of a heart rate above the normal resting heart rate for your age. Arrhythmia is defined as the electricity moving through the heart in an abnormal pattern. There are many types of arrhythmia, some benign and some serious.See 1 more doctor answer
Simple: Murmur= an extra heart sound beyond the expected lub dup. Mitral valve prolapse= the mitral valve sinks in when it closes and may leak. You hear a murmur, which may be a problem or not. You usually won't hear a valve prolapse but find out about it on a cardiac ultrasound or catheterization.See 2 more doctor answers
Dr. Sevveg, Mod. Aortic Stenosis is new diangosis April 2014 found w Echo by New ♡Dr w poss mild hypokensis of Apex. No heart murmur April 2013, but YES rt side murmur in March '14. Can D.M. cause it & Sob
Unlikely: Unlikely that DM caused AS. However DM does accelerate atherosclerotic and inflammatory process involved in plaque build up in coronary arteries and other vasculature which is a similar process involved in thickening and hardening of valves. SOB - shortness of breath needs to be worked up... Check with your doc... You will need stress testing...
I wouldn't: Physiologic is another label for innocent or "unimportant" murmur. It is used for a variety of "extra noises" like the flow of blood from the head to the heart or the vibrations of a normal heart in a chest during beating. It is often mentioned in passing during a well visit.
Not necessarily: Many children have murmurs. And many of those murmurs are "innocent", meaning they are not related to an actual problem with the heart. On the other hand, murmurs can be a sign of a problem. Please discuss this issue with your physician to determine your specific level of risk.See 2 more doctor answers
Usually Benign: I think almost every kid I have seen long term has had a murmur at some point. Murmur just means an extra sound, usually vibration from blood flow. It can amplify with fever or even be normal flow in veins of the neck. If at a typical location & of usual quality ur doc may just list it in the chart & assess it at future visits. If it had greater meaning u should have been informed at the time.See 1 more doctor answer
What should I watch for if my boyfriend was born with a heart murmur? And how do I know if its dangerous?
Other issues: Murmurs are often detected in the first hours after birth and represent a normal heart shifting from pregnancy flow patterns to air breather patterns. The PDA murmur disappears within hours or days. Other benign murmurs occur in kids, and disappear as they grow older. The "blue baby" murmurs that signal bad stuff are dramatic and sorted out in infancy. Your bf likely has no "heart" issues at all, ask.See 2 more doctor answers
5yo had physical and Pedi said her innocent heart murmur is louder than past but still nothing to worry about. Why isn't it gone and why is it louder?
Murmur: Your pedi might be right sometimes it is louder, but usually when you have anemia or fever. You can also ask to see a pediatric cardiologist, maybe an echo can be done and if normal you can be 100% sure that it is innocent or Ped cardiologist may not even see echocardiogram necessarySee 1 more doctor answer
NO: A heart murmur is a condition related to abnormal flow of blood through one (or more) of the heart valves. Anxiety can cause or worsen different abnormal heart rhythms, which in turn can increase the heart murmur. Example: anxiety can cause increased heart rate and in turn worsen a murmur. So the short answer is no, but anxiety can certainly make an underlying murmur more apparent.See 3 more doctor answers
Murmurs: Not likely murmurs give other symptoms related to breathlessness etc.
I was told I've got an enlarged right ventricle and a heart murmur. Did onecause the other perhaps?
Can you have an intermttant heart murmur? Some drs hear it and some don't so I never know whether to mention it. I have an autoimmune condition.
Heart sounds: Normal first heart sound (s1) means normal closure of the two valves (tricuspid and mitral) between upper and lower chambers of the heart. Normal second heart sound (s2) means normal closure of the outlet valves (aortic and pulmonary) from bottom chambers of the heart to all body parts (systemic circulation) and lungs (pulmonary circulation). S1 and S2 (racepinephrine) can be soft, loud or abnormally split attimesSee 1 more doctor answer
Does smoking hookah show up on your ultrasound for a heart murmur and is smoking hookah bad for you?
Smoking: Breathing any kind of smoke is not healthful for the lungs. Some smoke has absorbable substances which can cause systemic trouble.
Both my kids have innocent heart murmur is it possible that I could have a heart condition too I have hypothyroid but my heart has sharp pain?
Innocent murmurs: There is no known inheritance issues with innocent murmurs and they tend to resolve with time. Innocent implies no disease. It a sound created within a normal heart and is not a disease. Your symptoms may be entirely separate. Be assessed. I hope all goes well.See 1 more doctor answer
Sometimes I get pains near my heart. I have a innocent heart murmur. Doc said she could barely hear it and it was innocent. Is this bad or no?
Doesn't sound bad: Lots of people have heart murmurs. This doesn't mean there is anything wrong with you or your heart. If you are really concerned you could get an echo, (an ultrasound of the heart) but that seems unnecessary from the information provided. I would not worry about this, just like your doctor told you.
I have a heart murmur and im trying to get pregnant. When I give birth will the heart murmur effect me?
Murmur: Heart murmur is just noise. If the noise is caused by a significant heart blood flow problem, that is what you need to know. Ask your doc what is going on.
A heart murmur is a sound heard by a stethoscope made by the vibration of blood flow. It can be a normal finding in young healthy people, or can represent abnormal leakage (regurgitation) of a valve, valve narrowing (stenosis), or a congenital condition such as an atrial septal defect, a ventricular septal defect, ...Read more
This usually has to do with the onset of labor. It is a muscular tightening of the uterus. Contractions are timed from beginning to end of hardening of the uterus (duration) and from beginning of one contraction until the beginning of the next (frequency). A third descriptor is intensity or how hard ...Read more
