Dr. James Ferguson
Pediatrics
In brief: Innocent murmur
If you want to call it one, the most common heart related issue with kids is an innocent heart murmur.
If i listen to the same child often enough, i will hear an extra noise, a murmur, that represents the simple dynamic movement of the heart; blood flow thru veins of the neck, or other normal findings.Irregular formation of the heart or its valves, rhythm problems & disease are uncommon.
