I'm scheduled for a test in heart cardiology. For systolic murmur. I heard the test will take about one hour. What do I do there? Little bit nervous
See below. I believe they have scheduled for a 2D echocardiogram which is a fairly benign test. They will look at your heart with an ultrasound probe to determine the cause of your murmur. It is not painful and your would be just laying in a dark room on a table while they take some images of your heart. .

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.
