Pediatric Heart Murmur

Look up a term in The Heart Center glossary.

A heart murmur is simply an extra sound heard when listening to the heart. The normal sounds a heart makes are from the valves closing.

If there is turbulence, or disturbance, in the flow of blood through the heart or major blood vessels around the heart, a murmur may be heard.
