In brief: Murmur grading

Subjective, but grading based on: 1: murmur is only audible on listening carefully for some time.
2: murmur faint but audible on placing the stethoscope on the chest. 3: loud murmur readily audible but with no palpable thrill. 4: loud murmur with a palpable thrill. 5: loud murmur with a palpable thrill. Audible with stethoscope rum just on chest 6. Audible with stethoscope off chest wall!
