In brief: Flow murmur
Ejection systolic murmur usually refers to a benign murmur caused by increased blood flow.
In other words, this is a functional murmur and not caused by any valvular pathology. Common causes are increased heart rate, increased adrenergic tone (ie adrenaline), increase blood volume as in a pregnant state. More serious systolic murmurs indicate aortic stenosis, or outflow tract obstruction.
