Evaluation of cardiac murmurs in children
- 48 Downloads
Cardiac murmur is a common finding. The murmurs are the most common reason for detection of cardiac disease in children. They are divided into systolic, diastolic and continuous types. Careful evaluation of the murmur and other associated findings will often result in making a reasonably correct diagnosis. Occasional use of noninvasive and invasive studies is necessary for accurate diagnosis. However, these studies may often be required for quantitation and prior to surgical intervention.
