Common Questions and Answers about Heart murmur newborns

Avatar n tn A heart murmur is simply a symptom. Heart murmurs can be completely benign (meaning, they cause no harm at all) or a symptom of a very serious heart defect. If you have a concern about a heart murmur in a newborn, the baby's doctor would have to tell you what they think suspect the problem is from. Most heart murmurs can simply be watched, if there is no other accompanying symptoms of difficulties present with the infants health.
Avatar n tn Sometimes there is nothing wrong with the heart valves, it is just the thick chest wall. Infants sometimes outgrow a heart murmur due to the fact that they are still growing and changing. Most likely the doctor will monitor the heart murmur. Wondering if you are pregnant and found out some news during your ultrasound?
Avatar n tn My first was born with a VSD and has a residual heart murmur, my second also has a murmur and I imagine in short order they will notice on in my third. The VSD closed in its own with my first and the murmurs have been ruled "innocent" all have nursed well. My husband has a heart condition and our boys are likely affected by genetics. I agree with the others, get together with a lactation consultant about the latching issues. They are most likely not related to the heart issue.
Avatar n tn 22 MY 2 MONTH OLD WAS DIAGNOSED WITH A HEART MURMUR BY OUR PEDIATRICIAN. WE HAVE AN APPOINTMENT WITH A PEDIATRIC CARDIOLOGIST AT THE END OF JUNE. WHY DIDN'T ANYONE NOTICE THE MURMUR AT BIRTH OR AT HER ONE MONTH APPOINTMENT? IS WAITING 1 MONTH TO SEE THE CARDIOLOGIST DANGEROUS? WE ARE FLYING ON AN AIRPLANE BEFORE THE APPOINTMENT AND I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW IF THIS IS DANGEROUS AS WELL.
Avatar n tn As far as the murmur goes, I xray quite a few babies with heart murmur and have yet to hear about a complication with the murmur. And these babies have become regular patients of our department. They come in to check up on their progress and happy to say that every baby and young child that comes in has had no serious problems. I wish the best for you and your child. Take care. I hope this message sent some comfort.
1527052 tn?1291673959 My 2 day old grandson has been diagnosed with a heart murmur and we have been told he has too much oxygen in his blood. His eating habit is good, however after feeding his little burp is more of a man size belch coming from his feet. What would cause too much oxygen and how bad is this rare condition.

Avatar f tn I have open heart 4 years ago they replaced 5 arteries I went for my yearly check up and now have a heart murmur is this normal to get so long after surgery and can the murmur be why I am sleepy all the time
Avatar f tn I do not know of any relationship between a heart murmur and weight gain, or chest pain. I believe many people have heart murmur and it is not dangerous. I think most case are just monitored, perhaps even echocardiograms every few years to get an accurate measure on how the heart and all its valves are working. A murmur can also be caused by a leakage between heart chambers, which I believe are usually left untreated.
Avatar n tn I recently had a pre-op physical and the Dr. not my normal Dr. picked up a heart murmur. I have had a history of SVT and on Atenalol.
Avatar f tn Most murmurs can only be heard with the assistance of a stethoscope. A murmur may be heard in a normal heart, and may not necessarily caused by a structural defect in the heart itself. Murmurs may also be the result of various problems, such as narrowing or leaking of valves, or the presence of passages between chambers of the heart. Elevated blood pressure may not be related to the murmur.
Avatar n tn No, it's not bad news. It's good news that this was found and that you can get it checked out. A lot of people have heart murmurs that are considered "benign;" in other words the heart murmur doesn't mean anything and won't hurt the person. The reason for you to see a cardiologist is to make sure that's all it is. Probably you will go once and not need to go back.
Avatar n tn I recently went in for my yearly exam and the doctor mentioned i had a heart murmur. I've read a lot of articles on the web and they all seem to agree that this can be caused by certain sicknesses or diseases, or you have it from birth. My question is if i havent had any of these diseases or conditions and havent had a "heart murmur" show up in the past, should i be concerned?
Avatar f tn All babies are born with a heart murmur and that murmur usually closes by the time a child turn 12 months.
162489 tn?1189755831 I took my cat to the vets today for his annual booster vaccinations and a general checkup. The vet noticed that he has a heart murmur and that he needs to go for an ultrasound. Can anyone tell me if having a murmur will affect the quality of his life. He is only 4 yrs old and is a lively and loving cat. I'm so worried about him. Is a heart murmur a very serious problem?
Avatar f tn I just got told that my one year old has a heart murmur why all the sudden how come they didnt find it when he was born.?well my question is Can heart murmurs come out of no way??
Avatar n tn I have a 15 month old daughter. Very active, very healthy, growing and developing just fine. A slight heart murmer was detected 12 months ago, and the doctor's advice was to come back in 12 months for evaluation. The murmur is more pronounced now, and has been called a "flow murmur". We have an appointment made at the Childrens Heart Clinic. What can I expect? What should I ask? What is a "flow murmur"? Thanks!
Avatar n tn If a child has a heart murmur, and grows up and becomes an athelete (football player), can the murmur cause his death?
