In brief: Yes

Many patients with patent ductus arteriosus (pda) will have a murmur, and that murmur is often described as machinery or continuous.

In brief: Continuous murmur

A PDA causes a continuous murmur because of constant flow of blood from the systemic arterial circulation to the pulmonary arterial circulation.
It is often described as a "machinery-type" sound.
