Generally, in some consultation with a head pediatrician, or a guardian, cardiac murmur is recognized in the boy. A situation that can create difficulties in the parents and questions such as: Is it something serious? How was it not found in the front?
What is it Through stethoscope, the doctor listens to heart sounds, to assess his status. When the heart is murmured, extra sound is produced; most murmurs should not be of concern and have no effect on the child's health.
"Sometimes they are the result of a normal blood flow that cycles through a healthy heart with more speed (functional or innocent murmur), this is often, six in ten children can present an innocent murmur at some point or twf. In some cases it causes fever, dehydration or anemia which makes the heartbeat faster and thus generates more noise. They usually disappear on their own as the child grows and there is no risk to health. "Paradoxian Carina Maciá (MN 145913) explained" in other cases, murmur can indicate a change in the heart structure that may be of birth or acquisition (organic murmurs) ".
According to a specialist at the Medical Center in Switzerland, "this is caused by blood rolling through small communications that are still after birth or by rarely narrow, organic conditions".
What should be done when the pediatrician finds a murmur? "Most of the murmurs during childhood are innocent," said Maciá, "in some cases the pediatrician may consider it necessary to arrange a consultation with the cardiologist to finish studying."
Regarding whether functional murmurings restrict the child in his daily activity, the expert considered that "The innocent murmurs can be seen in healthy hearts, so it is possible to continue the daily routine. The organic murmurs will depend on all cases, but most do not limit the child's leisure activities. "
And at the time that innocent murmur can not be heard at times, he emphasized: "It's quite common to hide hidden during an investigation, even when they were not heard from before. Typical murmurs usually appear and disappear, depending on the rate of heart, the situation during the exam and fever presence. Some new murmurs may indicate short-term heart condition. "
Finally, the pediatrician said "heart grief is the result of an investigation, not a disease." The pediatrician and the children's cardiologist can decide if the murmur is active (which means that the child is healthy) or if there is a specific heart problem. If there is a problem, a child's cardiologist will advise the appropriate treatment.
