In brief: Diagnosis vs Finding
An ASD (atrial septal defect) and vsd (ventricular septal defect) or diagnoses.
ASD the hole is between left and right atria. Vsd the hole is between left and right ventricles. A murmur is diagnostic finding (sign). It is a sound caused by turbulent flow (rough like rapids in a river). Murmurs can be heard with many issues in the heart. An ASD may not even have a murmur.
