There are two.... Heart sounds that every healthy heart makes, sound one (s1) and sound two (s2 (racepinephrine)). Systolic means it happens after s1. Diastolic means it happens after s2 (racepinephrine). Systolic sounds occur when the heart is pumping. Diastolic sounds happen when the heart is refilling for its next pump.
Should I be worried? Can it get worst? What should she be prevent from doing? Would she out grow it. Thanks hello I have a 6years old daughter, I took her to the doctor and I was told she has a heart murmur, I really never heard of such a thing. Her doctor
A. A heart murmur is just a sound we hear when we listen to someone's heart. Sometimes this is a sound made by blood flowing through a hole in the heart or a leaky valve, sometimes it is just the sound of normal blood flow. Often, doctors can tell whether the murmur is concerning just by how it sounds. 50% of kids at some point will have a heart murmur - usually it is just because their chests are so much thinner than adults that you can actually hear the normal blood flow. She may or may not grow out of it, but if she has a normal heart - it doesn't matter. It's just a sound that can indicate a problem, but not a problem in and of itself. If you have any other questions, you should give her doctor a call.
Likely normal. Having a heart murmur means that when the heart beats, there is enough energy in the blood flow that some of the energy is transformed into sound. In a six year old, most likely this is a normal murmur and not a murmur caused by a heart problem. An experienced listener can hear differences in the sound that predict whether the murmur is normal. Children typically have normal murmurs.
I have a heart murmur but my doctor told me it was extremely loud and protruding thorough my neck. I've been having palpalations and a fast heart rate?
Heart murmur. Heart murmur radiating to the neck generally indicates narrowing of the aorta. I suspect your doctor scheduled some follow up testing. Palpitations and a racing heart beat could be related if the heart is having difficulty pumping blood through a tight valve. It is important that you review any educational material provided by the doctor and proceed with the upcoming work-up.
I am 27 yo Male, no previous heart condition. Dr. told me I have systolic murmur; sounds like 1.5/6. How soon should I get echocardiogram? Necessary?
Depends. Most heart murmurs are not anything to worry about and do not require an echocardiogram. If there is something else going on with your health that could cause a new heart valve problem, then your doctor would want to see an echocardiogram. It is probably best to sit down with your doctor, and gear what they think.
I was told I have soft systolic murmur in aorta area and referred to heart cardiology. What's gonna happen next? Very nervous. BP 150/90, 35yrs
Don't be nervous. Soft systolic murmur is a very vague description given to you by your doctor. It could be something absolutely benign. If you're having symptoms such as chest pain, shortness of breath or other cardiac symptoms AND you have a murmur, then perhaps there's more reason for concern. I'm sure your cardiologist will give you a good explanation and hopefully nothing serious. Be well!
Heart murmur. A pediatrric cardiologist.
Infant murmer. Assume it was heard by a pediatrician. Most infant murmers are benign and resolve over time. You should seek the advice of your pediatrician about the murmer. Sometimes an echocardiogram is obtained to evaluate the murmer and if abnormal then you may be referred to a pediatric cardiologist.
Pediatric cardiologi. You should take her to a pediatric cardiologist. Did your pediatrician say what kind of a murmur it is? A lot of children, at some point, have an innocent murmur, which is transient and benign. If it is pathologic, you should be referred to the specialist, be well!
My doctors said I may be at risk for a heart murmur. How would you tell if you had a heart murmur or not beforehand?
Heart Murmur. Not all heart murmurs are associated with significant heart disease. If a heart murmur was heard in physical exam, get an echocardiogram to rule out valvular abnormality.
A sound. Lots of confusion about what a murmur is. It's simple: a murmur is an abnormal noise coming from the heart as heard with a stethoscope. A murmur can be innocent, meaning an abnormality that is of little consequence: or else it can portend an issue that needs further work up. If your physician hears a murmur ask if it bears working up further.
Stethoscope. A heart murmur is a sound your doctor hears with s stethoscope during your physical exam. You either have one, or you don't. Many heart murmurs are harmless, just the normal sound of heart flowing through your heart. Some may indicate pathology, such as a narrowed or leaking valve. An echocardiogram is a good way to tell the significance of a cardiac murmur.
Physical exam. Echocardiogram, sthetoscope.
Usually. A murmur is just an abnormal sound the heart makes, usually from one of the 4 valves. The vast majority are of no clinical significance. But the type and quality of murmur help to determine if it's a problem. Especially if you are not having any symptoms (fatigue, dizziness, etc) a mild murmur is benign.
Echocardiogram. Many heart murmurs are insignificant and the examining physician usually can identify significant ones. If there is any doubt, an echocardiogram can diagnose abnormalities of the heart which produce heart murmurs. If the echocardiogram is normal it proves that a murmur is insignificant.
