Doctor insights on:
Echo listed tricuspid, aortic, mitral valve as normal.But no pulm valve.Also doppler didn't mention pulm.Told innocent murmur. Pulm not visual.How do they know that the pulm was not causing the mur?
Well...: An innocent murmur usually means a low intensity one (by the braunwald criteria at least) and these can come and go. It's normal to have trivial leakages of the various valves. You don't have to aggressively hunt for the cause of that murmur. Now, that said, doppler can often identify "trivial" regurgitation of valves even when the valve isn't directly seen. That may be at play here. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Is the murmur of pulmonary stenosis fairly unique?Fairly obvious when its heard? I.E. Wide split s2etc.Or does it sound like innocent murmur?
Yes and no: The murmur of pulmonary stenosis is diffierent from an innocent murmur but other heart conditions cause split s2 (racepinephrine). The murmur has a crescendo-decrescendo shape, and a harsh quality. Because it takes longer for the right ventricle to eject its load of blood through the stenotic valve, the closure of the pulmonary valve is delayed. This causes the splitting of the second heart sound. ...Read more

22mth son obsessed with nmbers wants rubber digits1-9 ALWAYS with him, wails without them, asks for number songs. He Speaks well. Is this aspergers?
Could be but first: research Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD). On the other hand, your son is not even two, so let's not be too alarmed. Kids go through stages, and the stages change rapidly--the younger the more rapid the changes. Be patient and indulge him. What you describe is not harmful, just different. Consult with other parents, or if you are still concerned, a pediatrician or child psychologist. ...Read more
Mitral regurgitation: Our echocardiogram studies are so sensitive that they frequently show tiny amounts of insignificant valve leak, with trace mitral regurgitation being the commonest of these. It is not a concern. To have a murmur you have to have enough turbulent blood flow to make an audible noise. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
