My 7 month old has been sweating more recently when taking his milk feeds. He has a heart murmur, but scan was ok. He has allergy to cows milk.?

Concerning. Increased sweating during feeds, especially of the head, in a child with a heart murmer can indicate a problem with the heart function. It is reassuring that he had a normal echocardiogram, which should rule out this serious condition. It would be unlikely that food allergy would cause sweating during feeds. It would be wise to follow up with your pediatrician for this.

I sneezed yesterday and started feeling breathless and still do today is this a result of allergies my asthma or my heart murmur?

Allergies and asthma. Although some heart conditions that cause heart murmers can be associated with shortness of breath, the combination of sneezing and breathlessness is most likely to be due to a flar in your allergies and asthma, or due to a new upper respiratory infection. If using your allergy and asthma medications as instructed does not provide you with relief, or if new symptoms develop, schedule a visit. Read more...

Will I need to worry if my 14 month old son has a physiological heart murmur?

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. Read more...

18month old has got to have a heart scan as the doctor found a heart murmur, he said it sounds quite loud. Should I be worried?

No. You should be worried if you DON'T have the exam - most likely an echo, not a scan. There is always more anxiety relating to the unknown. Many murmurs are innocent and require no treatment. If you have a serious cause, it's better to diagnose it earlier and treat it before permanent harm is done than to ignore it and wait. Good luck! Read more...

Doctor found a heart murmur on my 18month old today. He has got to have a scan. Should I be worried?

Well child? Children who are tired, short of breath, losing weight and not eating or playing may well have a serious heart condition. A playful, well child who is growing and gaining weight is less likely to have a significant or worrisome murmur. Read more...

Safety. With many children's surgeries, the longer that the surgeons can wait (while the child is stable and growing), the easier the surgery will be. Having a bit more weight and a more stable immune system helps a lot with surgery. Your child's doctor will follow her closely and make sure that she is not becoming unstable. Read more...
Atrial Septal Defect. Or autistic spectrum disorder? A small atrial septal defect rarely requires an invasive diagnostic procedure or heart surgery in a child. If your child was unable to cooperate for the 1st echo, the pediatric cardiologist may want to re-check in 3 mos. To insure that blood flow across the ASD is not causing his heart to work harder. See: http:/www.Heart.Org/. Call the pede cardiologist to ask why. Read more...
