1 doctor agrees
In brief: Depends
A systolic murmur describes turbulent blood flow during the systolic portion (where the ventricles push blood to the lungs and body) of the cardiac cycle.
There are several causes of this, which range from trivial to more serious. You should speak with your md to determine the etiology of the murmur and then he/she can advise about exercise and exertion levels.
