Heart sounds caused by vibrations resulting from the flow of blood through the heart. Heart murmurs can be examined by HEART AUSCULTATION, and analyzed by their intensity (6 grades), duration, timing (systolic, diastolic, or continuous), location, transmission, and quality (musical, vibratory, blowing, etc).
Act of listening for sounds within the heart.
Graphic registration of the heart sounds picked up as vibrations and transformed by a piezoelectric crystal microphone into a varying electrical output according to the stresses imposed by the sound waves. The electrical output is amplified by a stethograph amplifier and recorded by a device incorporated into the electrocardiograph or by a multichannel recording machine.
Systematic and thorough inspection of the patient for physical signs of disease or abnormality.
The hollow, muscular organ that maintains the circulation of the blood.
Ultrasonic recording of the size, motion, and composition of the heart and surrounding tissues. The standard approach is transthoracic.
The sounds heard over the cardiac region produced by the functioning of the heart. There are four distinct sounds: the first occurs at the beginning of SYSTOLE and is heard as a "lubb" sound; the second is produced by the closing of the AORTIC VALVE and PULMONARY VALVE and is heard as a "dupp" sound; the third is produced by vibrations of the ventricular walls when suddenly distended by the rush of blood from the HEART ATRIA; and the fourth is produced by atrial contraction and ventricular filling.
Instruments intended to detect and study sound produced by the heart, lungs, or other parts of the body. (from UMDNS, 1999)
Printed publications usually having a format with no binding and no cover and having fewer than some set number of pages. They are often devoted to a single subject.
The pathologic narrowing of the orifice of the TRICUSPID VALVE. This hinders the emptying of RIGHT ATRIUM leading to elevated right atrial pressure and systemic venous congestion. Tricuspid valve stenosis is almost always due to RHEUMATIC FEVER.
Heart failure caused by abnormal myocardial relaxation during DIASTOLE leading to defective cardiac filling.
The valve consisting of three cusps situated between the right atrium and right ventricle of the heart.
The number of times the HEART VENTRICLES contract per unit of time, usually per minute.
Pathological conditions involving the HEART including its structural and functional abnormalities.
Part of the body in humans and primates where the arms connect to the trunk. The shoulder has five joints; ACROMIOCLAVICULAR joint, CORACOCLAVICULAR joint, GLENOHUMERAL joint, scapulathoracic joint, and STERNOCLAVICULAR joint.
The articulation between the head of the HUMERUS and the glenoid cavity of the SCAPULA.
Bony structure of the mouth that holds the teeth. It consists of the MANDIBLE and the MAXILLA.

Prevalence and clinical significance of cardiac murmurs in neonates. (1/133)

AIM: To determine the prevalence and clinical significance of murmurs detected during routine neonatal examination. METHODS: In a two year prospective study, 7204 newborn babies underwent routine examination by senior house officers. All those with murmurs underwent echocardiographic examination. All babies presenting later in infancy were also identified, to ascertain the total prevalence of congenital heart disease in infancy. RESULTS: Murmurs were detected in 46 babies (0.6%) of whom 25 had a cardiac malformation. The most common diagnosis was a ventricular septal defect, although four babies had asymptomatic left heart outflow obstruction. A further 32 infants from the same birth cohort had a normal neonatal examination but were found to have a cardiac malformation before 12 months of age. CONCLUSIONS: The neonatal examination detects only 44% of cardiac malformations which present in infancy. If a murmur is heard there is a 54% chance of there being an underlying cardiac malformation. Parents and professionals should be aware that a normal neonatal examination does not preclude a clinically significant cardiac malformation. The detection of a murmur should prompt early referral to a paediatric cardiologist for diagnosis or appropriate reassurance.  (+info)

Heart murmurs in pediatric patients: when do you refer? (2/133)

Many normal children have heart murmurs, but most children do not have heart disease. An appropriate history and a properly conducted physical examination can identify children at increased risk for significant heart disease. Pathologic causes of systolic murmurs include atrial and ventricular septal defects, pulmonary or aortic outflow tract abnormalities, and patent ductus arteriosus. An atrial septal defect is often confused with a functional murmur, but the conditions can usually be differentiated based on specific physical findings. Characteristics of pathologic murmurs include a sound level of grade 3 or louder, a diastolic murmur or an increase in intensity when the patient is standing. Most children with any of these findings should be referred to a pediatric cardiologist.  (+info)

Cardiologic evaluation of children with suspected heart disease: experience of a public outpatient clinic in Brazil. (3/133)

CONTEXT: During initial evaluation of children on an outpatient basis, the index of suspected heart disease may be high, particularly if we consider that innocent murmur occurs in about 50% of the pediatric population. This is the most common cause of referral to the pediatric cardiologist. OBJECTIVE: To report on the experience of a public outpatient clinic in the southeastern region of Brazil. DESIGN: Retrospective analysis of all patients submitted to cardiologic evaluation within a 39 month period. SETTING: Public pediatric cardiology outpatient clinic. PARTICIPANTS: 2675 consecutive children aged+info)

Apical systolic click and murmur associated with neurofibromatosis. (4/133)

Accuracy of clinical assessment of heart murmurs by office based (general practice) paediatricians. (5/133)

AIM: To determine the diagnostic accuracy of physical examination by office based (general practice) paediatricians in the evaluation of heart murmurs. DESIGN: Each of 30 office based paediatricians blindly examined a random sample of children with murmurs (43% of which were pathological). Sensitivity and specificity were calculated and were related to paediatricians' characteristics. RESULTS: Mean (SD) sensitivity was 82 (24)% with a mean specificity of 72 (24)% in differentiating pathological from innocent murmurs, with further investigations requested for 54% of assessments. The addition of a referral strategy would have increased mean sensitivity to 87 (20)% and specificity to 98 (8)%. Diagnostic accuracy was not significantly related to the paediatricians' age, education or practice characteristics, but was related to referral practices and confidence in assessment. CONCLUSIONS: Diagnostic accuracy of clinical assessment of heart murmurs by office based paediatricians is suboptimal, and educational strategies are needed to improve accuracy and reduce unnecessary referrals and misdiagnosis.  (+info)

A 72 year old woman with ALCAPA. (6/133)

ALCAPA syndrome (anomalous origin of the left coronary artery from the pulmonary artery), which causes the left coronary artery to grow with an anomalous origin from the pulmonary artery, is a rare disease which may result in myocardial infarction, congestive heart failure, and sometimes death during the early infantile period. A 72 year old woman with ALCAPA syndrome is presented. The asymptomatic patient presented with a cardiac murmur which was discovered during a routine check up for a gynaecological intervention. Coronary cineangiography established the diagnosis. Although surgical correction is the usual treatment for such cases, medical treatment was preferred for this patient because she was asymptomatic without clinical signs of heart failure.  (+info)

Tricuspid aortic valve with partial commissural fusion: prelminary report of an apparently common cause of aortic ejection sounds with potential for serious sequelae, illustrated by two cases. (7/133)

We report the cases of 2 patients whose tricuspid aortic valves were found to have partial commissural fusion. Both patients experienced complications that were probably related to this abnormality: bacterial endocarditis in 1 instance and a lacunar stroke in the other. In order to illustrate the similarity of physical findings, we also describe the case of a 3rd patient, who had a typical bicuspid aortic valve. Tricuspid aortic valve with partial commissural fusion has been described in autopsy series and has been predicted to cause an ejection sound, but we could find no previously published description of this lesion in living patients. We wish to alert others to the possible presence of aortic commissural fusion, to its potential for serious and likely preventable sequelae, and to the ability of carefully performed transthoracic high-resolution digital echocardiography to demonstrate this condition when its characteristics are found on physical examination.  (+info)

The patient with a systolic murmur: severe aortic stenosis may be missed during cardiovascular examination. (8/133)

Significant aortic stenosis is prevalent amongst elderly people. It may be subclinical, manifesting only as a murmur, but can still cause unexpected death with little warning after symptoms develop. Recent studies have highlighted the unreliability of the classical clinical signs of severe aortic stenosis, leading to concern that some patients may not be referred appropriately for echocardiography. Here, we review the evidence for the accuracy of each sign. We suggest that the assessment of the patient with a systolic murmur should be reappraised, and offer guidelines toward improving the recognition of aortic stenosis in the community.  (+info)

APPLETON, Wis. - Young or old, around a third of all people experience heart murmurs at some point in their life. An estimated 30 percent of children (mainly ages three to seven) and 10 percent of adults are affected by this type of irregular heartbeat. Most cases are harmless. Still, it is good to have your pulse on this condition, says Babar Parvez, M.D., a physician specializing in clinical cardiac electrophysiology for rhythm disorders of the heart at ThedaCare Cardiovascular Care in Appleton. A heart murmur is detected as a doctor listens to a persons heartbeat using a stethoscope. When we hear more of a swooshing or swishing sound, we suspect a heart murmur, Dr. Parvez explains. Most of the time, were not concerned. In some cases, we need to look at treatment options immediately.. A heart murmur is simply disordered blood flow throughout the heart chambers. Experts categorize heart murmurs as either harmless, called innocent heart murmurs, or abnormal, which should be taken ...
The most common type of heart murmur is called functional or innocent. An innocent heart murmur is the sound of blood moving through a normal, healthy heart in a normal way. Just as you might hear air moving through an air duct or water flowing through a pipe, doctors can hear blood moving through the heart even when theres no heart problem.. An innocent heart murmur can come and go throughout childhood. Kids with these murmurs dont need a special diet, restriction of activities, or any other special treatment. Those old enough to understand that they have a heart murmur should be reassured that they arent any different from other kids.. Most innocent murmurs will go away on their own as a child gets older.. ...
Treatment of heart murmurs often depends on the age and health of your dog. Some owners opt not to treat heart murmurs because they arent causing a serious problem. Some puppies born with heart murmurs even heal on their own. However, several treatment options are also available, depending on the cause of the heart murmurs. If the murmur is caused by hypertension, also known as high blood pressure, often a diet change and increased exercise regime can solve the problem. Your veterinarian may recommend a low-sodium diet with more omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin A and coenzyme Q10. If the heart murmur is caused by heart disease, your veterinarian may prescribe a diuretic, which will prevent fluids from building up in your dogs heart. Medications such as Enalapril, Lasix or Benazepril are often prescribed to lower blood pressure and strengthen cardiovascular functions as well. In some cases, surgery may be the only treatment to repair the injured valve. This can be recommended both in young puppies ...
Im trying to think of the occasion when a cat owner would be searching the Internet for an answer to the life expectancy of a cat with a heart murmur because, it seems to me, their veterinarian would tell them having diagnosed the condition. Perhaps some unqualified cat owners have detected a heart murmur. However, as expected, they are usually detected when a veterinarian listens to a cats heart using a stethoscope. There may also be symptoms if the heart murmur is clinically significant such as weight loss due to poor appetite, breathing problems, lethargy, and weakness.. As anybody can buy a quality stethoscope online, on Amazon, I suspect that cat owners are doing their own diagnosis and detected a heart murmur in their cat because they have noticed symptoms.. The problem appears to be that you need to be able to grade the severity of the murmur to assess lifespan and that would normally require the training and skill of a veterinarian. And youll need to diagnose underlying illnesses ...
Heart murmurs are a common finding during physical examination of children but most of them are innocent or normal.recognizing the etiology of heart murmurs can help us in differential diagnosis of them.the peresent study was undertaken to determine the prevalence and etiology of heart murmurs in 4761 school children.the sex ratio was nearly 1:1 ,murmurs were heard in 459 students (9.64%) with no statistical difference between boys and girls(p|0.05).Innocent murmurs found in 298(64.92%) and pathologic murmurs in 161 ones(35.08%).most(91.93%) pathologic murmurs were valvular in origin and the rest(8.07%) were a sign of intracardiac shunts.mitral valve prolapsus (MVP) was the most common valvular abnormality(77.03%).MVP was 1-17 times more prevalent in girls than in boys (p|0.05).next common forms of valvular lesions were pulmonic stenosis(0.46%) and aortic valve stenosis(0.19%).pulmonic stenosis was 2.67 times more prevalent in boys than in girls(p|0.05),nd aortic stenosis was seen only in boys (p=0.002
Few heart murmurs mean that activity should be curtailed. Most heart murmurs are harmless. If you hear you have a heart murmur do not let that fact alone throw a gloom over you. It probably will not influence your life at all.. A case in point is one I recall from the time I was a medical officer in the army. A young friend of mine came to me in great distress: an army medical board had turned him down because he had a systolic murmur in the heart. He wanted to enter an officers training camp. I found he did have a murmur as described, but was able to persuade the board to accept him. He passed through the arduous ordeal of the training camp, went to France with his unit, and served with distinction during the entire war, without ever being sick or knowing that he had a heart. He is still engaged in active business and is in good physical condition.. Such cases are very common. It is not necessarily the physicians fault. Most wise physicians, when they find such a murmur in one of their ...
Systolic heart murmurs are heart murmurs heard during systole. They can be classified by when the murmur begins and ends, between S1 and S2. Many involve stenosis of the semilunar valves or regurgitation of the atrioventricular valves. Mid-systolic ejection murmurs are due to blood flow through the semilunar valves. They occur at the start of blood ejection - which starts after S1 - and ends with the cessation of the blood flow - which is before S2. Therefore, the onset of a midsystolic ejection murmur is separated from S1 by the isovolumic contraction phase; the cessation of the murmur and the S2 interval is the aortic or pulmonary hangout time. The resultant configuration of this murmur is a crescendo-decrescendo murmur. Causes of midsystolic ejection murmurs include outflow obstruction, increased flow through normal semilunar valves, dilation of aortic root or pulmonary trunk, or structural changes in the semilunar valves without obstruction. Late systolic murmurs starts after S1 and, if left ...
Diastolic heart murmurs are heart murmurs heard during diastole. Diastolic murmurs start at or after S2 and end before or at S1. Many involve stenosis of the atrioventricular valves or regurgitation of the semilunar valves. Early diastolic murmurs start at the same time as S2 with the close of the semilunar (aortic & pulmonary) valves and typically end before S1. Common causes include aortic or pulmonary regurgitation and left anterior descending artery stenosis. Mid-diastolic murmurs start after S2 and end before S1. They are due to turbulent flow across the atrioventricular (mitral & tricuspid) valves during the rapid filling phase from mitral or tricuspid stenosis. Late diastolic (presystolic) murmurs start after S2 and extend up to S1 and have a crescendo configuration. They can be associated with AV valve narrowing. They include mitral stenosis, tricuspid stenosis, myxoma, and complete heart block. diastolic murmur at Dorlands Medical Dictionary Diastolic Murmurs -- Clinical Methods -- ...

Even though your child has a healthy heart murmur, they could have acquired a heart valve disease through a different means. For example, sometimes a routine surgery will result in a bacterial infection that ends up attacking the heart and scarring of the hearts valves. Something like strep throat could end up as endocarditis and weaken the heart valves. That is why its important that you contact your cardiologist if some of the above symptoms present themselves or you have at another reason to believe that there is more than just an innocent heart murmur involved.. ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Cost assessment of the evaluation of heart murmurs in children. AU - Danford, D. A.. AU - Nasir, A.. AU - Gumbiner, C.. PY - 1993. Y1 - 1993. N2 - Echocardiography available directly to primary care physicians represents an alternative strategy to pediatric cardiology consultation for childhood heart murmur evaluation. A decision analysis model compared the costs of two diagnostic strategies: (1) echocardiography first, referral to the cardiologist if appropriate; and (2) cardiologist evaluates murmur, echocardiography if appropriate. The model incorporated probability of heart disease, frequency of cardiologist-ordered echocardiography, and echocardiography results established by review of 388 records of consecutive patients evaluated for murmurs in a pediatric cardiology clinic. Echocardiography-first strategy costs were $257 greater than referral-strategy costs. Referral-strategy advantages were not highly sensitive to changes in model assumptions. Pediatric cardiology ...

Ive been told that my dog, a 6 year-old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, has a heart murmur. I am a bit confused about what the murmur means and what to do!. A heart murmur is an abnormal heart sound that can be heard when listening to the heart with a stethoscope. It occurs when there is turbulence in the flow of blood through the heart. There are a variety of diseases that can produce a murmur in the heart. However, the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel breed is predisposed to the development of mitral valve disease. To better understand mitral valve disease, a little anatomy lesson is needed. The heart has four chambers: two upper chambers called atria (a right and a left atrium) and two lower chambers called ventricles (also divided into right and left). In between each chamber is a valve that allows the blood to move forward through the heart, while preventing the blood from going in a backward direction.. The heart valve located between the left atrium and left ventricle is known as the mitral ...

Heart murmur and arthritis in older Poodle Question: Hello Dr. Richards, I have a poodle mix, Bonni, that is 11 years old. She is my baby and I am very concerned about her. I adopted her (at 6-8 months) from the Humane Society in Texas, she had been abused and was aggressive towards men, but they were doing their best to find a suitable home for her. As a puppy she was diagnosed with a mild heart murmur and her only other problem until recently was skin allergies. Noticing that she hasnt been feeling good lately (she had been really chewing on the same spot on her right hip and been hobbling a bit), I took her to my vet for a geriatric exam, where the vet did a series of tests. The blood tests revealed that all of her levels were within acceptable standards except for the LDH or LHD (?), the vet explained it as a feel good level. The norm, I believe, was 300 - 800, and she was at 1200. Her x-ray also showed mild enlargement of her heart, and he noticed that she was favoring her front legs. ...

A normal heartbeat makes two sounds like lub-dub. These are the sounds of your heart valves closing. When a person has a heart murmur, there is an abnormal sound when the heart beats. There can be a whooshing or swishing sound, and these types of sounds are made by turbulent blood in or near your heart. Heart murmurs can be present at birth or can develop later in life. Most heart murmurs - especially in infants and children - are harmless. These are called innocent or functional murmurs, and a person with this kind of murmur has a normal heart. There are generally no signs or symptoms with innocent murmurs, and treatment is usually not required. While a heart murmur in and of itself is not a disease, it may indicate that there is an underlying problem with the heart. Characteristics of pathological murmurs often include a sound level of grade 3 or higher, a diastolic murmur, or an increase in intensity when the person is standing. Given that you murmur has been classified as a grade 2 ...

A heart murmur doesnt feel like a fluttering in your chest. In fact, you cant feel it all-a stethoscope is the only way to detect this whooshing or swishing sound, which is caused by turbulent or abnormal blood flow in or around your heart. Some murmurs are harmless, but others can signal an underlying heart condition. It can be caused by heart valve problems-either narrowing or leaking of the valves-holes in the heart, or other congenital heart defects, says Brent Lampert, DO, a cardiologist at The Ohio University Wexner Medical Center in Columbus. However, most are innocent or harmless murmurs. Some murmurs, depending on their cause, can trigger symptoms. A doctor can detect any heartbeat irregularities at your regular physical exam and evaluate further with an echocardiogram (an ultrasound of the heart). Its important to know that many patients will not experience symptoms, or the valve disease progresses slowly enough that the heart compensates and symptoms are hardly noticed, ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Cost‐Effectiveness of Echocardiography for Evaluation of Children with Murmurs. AU - DANFORD, DAVID A.. PY - 1995/3. Y1 - 1995/3. N2 - Echocardiography is widely accepted as an accurate diagnostic test to evaluate heart murmurs in children, however its costs, and the ubiquity of murmurs in children, discourage its universal application. The purpose of this article is to identify some clinical circumstances in which the cost of echocardiography is justified for the evaluation of heart murmurs in infants and children. Eight common clinical problems were selected in which a heart murmur is present and a diagnosis is called for. Effectiveness of echocardiography and less costly clinical diagnostic methods in these settings were compared. In some circumstances, echocardiography is worth the cost, because clinical evaluation is unacceptably insensitive to important disease (the premature infant with a murmur which might represent a patent ductus arteriosus, the infant with a ...

Abstract: Kawasaki disease(KD) is acute vasculitis in childhood. The authors report the 12-month-old girl with initial presentation of cardiac murmur who was diagnosed incomplete KD.. Case: A 12-month-old girl with history of 3 days fever up to 38°C and upper respiratory symptoms including rhinorrhea visited a pediatric clinic. Cardiac murmur was noticed, then she was referred to Pediatric Cardiology clinic. She had loss of appetite and her growth curve showed severely underweight of 8.4kg(less than 3p) compared to height 78cm(50~75p).. On hospital day 1, laboratory studies revealed a white blood cell (WBC) 9.4(seg73%, Lym23%)x 103/uL, hemoglobin concentration(Hb) of 5.5 g/dL with hematocrit(Hct) 21%, platelet count 426,000/uL.

A community outreach project. Holy Innocents is proud to be part of this homeless respite that focuses ultimately on alleviating the problem. We can only offer this respite because of the generous help and energy of so many people within and without our community. There are lots of church volunteers and volunteers from the local community who help each week with the running of the respite.. Teachers and parents from our local schools have also taken part in the project and have helped cook evening meals and breakfasts. Local schools have enjoyed bringing classes along to Holy Innocents during the daytime before we open our doors to the guests, to learn about issues around homelessness and what happens at our overnight respite. School children have also taken part in setting up beds and tables in preparation (though only over 18s can volunteer with guests in the evenings).. Local business and residents have also been very generous in supporting the project financially. Moors Bar on Park Road ...
By SJA Jafri +Agencies. WASHINGTON/MELBOURNE: On the basis of victim families and aggrieved persons statements, vocal and written documentary evidence and contradictions of officials and unofficial proclamations, media reports and sources claims, many media outlets across the world including Press Media of India (PMI), British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC), Press TV, Cable News Network and Messenger claimed that 37-Shia Muslims those executed in Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) on Tuesday were innocent while, before beheading the said people they were brutally tortured and beaten as per KSAs routine against Shia Muslims as practised for the last seven decades.. Long before Saudi Arabia announced it had carried out one of the largest mass executions in its history earlier this week, some of the men condemned to death had made impassioned pleas to the courts in a bid to save their lives.. Many said they were totally innocent, that their confessions had been written by the same people who had ...
On December 9, 2019 from 10:00am - 3:30pm, Heart Valve Voice (HVV) Canada will conduct complimentary stethoscope checks at the Newmarket Seniors Meeting Place. A routine stethoscope check can be the first step in identifying and diagnosing heart valve disease. Our event on December 9 is an opportunity for individuals in and around the Newmarket region to come meet with us, learn more about HVV Canada and our work, as well as have the opportunity to receive a stethoscope check. While this event does not replace or qualify as a formal doctors appointment, we will be able to provide education on the signs, symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment of heart valve disease. For those that would like a stethoscope check, our on-site physician and nurse practitioner will listen for a characteristic heart murmur or click murmur that can be an indication of a valve disorder. The stethoscope checks conducted at this event are completely voluntary and will take place in a health room that offers privacy to ...
General Illness Information. Medical Term: Mitral valve prolapse.. Common Name: None Specified. Description: Bulging of one or both leaflets of the mitral valve (valve between the left ventricle and left atrium in the heart) during the contraction phase of the heart cycle. This causes a characteristic heart murmur. This is a common and often benign disorder, and is most frequent in young to middle-aged women.. Unknown in most cases. Occasionally it is inherited (Autosomal dominant type).. Prevention: At this time, there is no prevention known.. Signs & Symptoms. This condition is often an incidental finding in normal persons, without any symptoms. It may be discovered on a routine examination. The following symptoms may or may not be present:. ...
The mitral valve sits between the left atrium and the left ventricle and helps control the flow of blood as it passes from the left atrium into the left ventricle. The valve has two flaps of tissue - known as leaflets - that open and close together like a pair of swinging doors. Each time the heart beats, the left ventricle pumps blood out to the body and the flaps of the mitral valve swing shut to prevent the blood in the ventricle from flowing backward into the left atrium.. In cases of MVP, one or both of the mitral valves leaflets may flop back and bulge into the atrium when they are shut, a bit like a balloon. This may happen because one of the flaps is abnormally shaped or a little too big.. Sometimes, when the flaps do not close evenly, blood can leak back into the left atrium. This is called mitral regurgitation. In all of us, a tiny amount of mitral regurgitation may be normal. When there is more than a little leakage, the doctor may hear a whooshing sound - a heart murmur - between ...
The symptoms of a strep infection include a sudden onset of a very sore throat with a high fever. Nausea and abdominal pain may occur in children. However, many patients who develop strep throat do not develop these classic symptoms. An abnormal immune response by the body, following a period of approximately 10 days to 2 weeks after the strep infection, is believed to cause the clinical signs of rheumatic fever.. The signs and symptoms of rheumatic fever depend on which body systems are affected. In approximately half of the patients with rheumatic fever, the heart is involved. Patients may develop the symptoms of heart failure, such as shortness of breath. Leaking (incompetence) of one of the heart valves results in a heart murmur, which can be heard by a physician.. The arthritis of rheumatic fever is not chronic arthritis. It usually occurs in 60% to 70% of patients. It usually affects large joints, such as elbows, wrists, shoulders, ankles, and knees. It rarely affects the fingers, the ...
We finally got to see a cardiologist about Elizabeths heart murmur today. She had an echocardiogram done at the hospital, but Ive had a hard time getting anyone to tell me what the results were. I thought that my appointment today was to have somebody finally tell me about it, but the doctor was surprised to hear that it had been done, and certainly didnt have a copy. At any rate, they did an EKG and another Echo today, and told me the results immediately. It seems that Elizabeth has 3 holes in her heart. The first, called Patent Ductus Arteriosus (PDA) is so tiny they wouldnt measure it because any number she came up with would be inaccurate. The second, called Patent Foramen Ovale (PFO) is about 3 mm across -- the doctor says thats small. These first two holes exist in all babies before theyre born and close within the first days or weeks of life in most babies. For many though, they persist for a while and cause few or no symptoms until they close on their own. We probably wouldnt have ...
We report the case of a 3,5 month-old infant presented at cardiology consultation of our institution for investigation of a heart murmur associated with failure to thrive and respiratory distress. Echocardiogram showed dilatation of left heart cavities, patent foramen ovale, small muscular ventricular septal defect and pulmonary hypertension. Angio-CT was performed on a 64-slice CT to better characterize the congenital heart disease. Aortopulmonary window was diagnosed and surgically corrected. Patient evolution was good with discharge 10 days after surgery. The authors review the literature and stress the importance of angio-CT in pre-operative evaluation.. ...
When most people think of heart disease, they associate it with health problems that arise from living an unhealthy lifestyle. This is not the case however, as some people are born with congenital heart disease or heart murmurs. When an infant is born with an abnormal heart, it is called a congenital heart defect. This occurs in about eight out of every 1,000 infants born. While some defects are mild and not noticeable during infancy or even in childhood, some are severe and require immediate surgery.. Thanks to the advancements made in technology, cardiac medicine and catheter-based interventional procedures, now over 90 percent of infants born with congenital heart disease are living longer into adulthood. Skilled doctors who specialize in treating adults with this disease, make it possible for them to live a long, full life.. There are several factors linked to the development of congenital heart defects in infants. They include the following:. ...

Heart and blood vessels (cardiovascular system) - Most people with Marfan syndrome have problems associated with the heart and blood vessels. Because of faulty connective tissue, the wall of the aorta (the large artery that carries blood from the heart to the rest of the body) may be weakened and stretch, a process called aortic dilatation. Aortic dilatation increases the risk that the aorta will tear (aortic dissection) or rupture, causing serious heart problems or sometimes sudden death. Sometimes, defects in heart valves can also cause problems. In some cases, certain valves may leak, creating a heart murmur, which a doctor can hear with a stethoscope. Small leaks may not result in any symptoms, but larger ones may cause shortness of breath, fatigue, and palpitations (a very fast or irregular heart rate ...

Before Zoey Claire Randall was ever born, doctors knew something was wrong with her heart. Although they were not able to diagnose her while still in her mothers womb, the physicians told Laci and Aaron Randall the devastating news that Zoeys heart was not functioning the way it should be. When she was born 16 months ago, one month premature, tests revealed Zoey suffered from severe aortic stenosis, an enlarged heart, a heart murmur and an open PDA, which is basically a large hole in heart, her family reports. She was also diagnosed with severe kidney defects, hydronephrosis and ureterocele, which resulted in the scheduling of an upcoming procedure to remove the majority of one of Zoeys kidneys. Zoey has had two heart surgeries already and, according to her parents, seems to spend more time in the hospital or doctors office than she does at home. Zoeys first surgery occurred merely eight days after her first birthday, a procedure in which doctors plugged the hole in her heart with an ...
OBJECTIVE--To review the commonest types of cardiac tumours in childhood, their different presentations, and management. DESIGN--A retrospective study of patients with cardiac tumours. SETTING--Cardiac department of a teaching hospital. PATIENTS--Six patients with an age range between one day to three years presented over a period of 10 years. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES--To determine different presentations, management, and prognosis of cardiac tumours. RESULTS--Three patients presented with an arrhythmia, two with an asymptomatic heart murmur, and the sixth was discovered accidentally. Surgical resection of the tumours was performed in five cases, one patient died during the operation, one developed new tumours after surgery, and the remaining three have had an excellent result. Histology of those operated on showed benign rhabdomyomas in three and fibromas in the other two. The sixth patient was managed conservatively and the multiple tumours he had showed gradual resolution over a period of 10 ...
If my dog is eating a BEG diet but has no symptoms, should I test for DCM or switch to a different diet? Its unlikely that most dogs eating a BEG diet will develop DCM. However, given the fact that we dont yet understand why BEG diets are affecting some dogs and because DCM is a life-threatening disease, I recommend you reconsider your dogs diet until we know more. Contrary to popular belief, there are no health benefits of grain-free or exotic ingredient diets except in the rare case of food allergy. If your dog is a part of your family and you want to feed him the very best, be sure to base this important decision on more objective factors than marketing and the ingredient list (see our post). Be sure to watch for early signs of heart disease - weakness, slowing down, less able to exercise, shortness of breath, coughing, or fainting. If you notice any of these, get your dog checked out by your veterinarian who will listen for a heart murmur or abnormal heart rhythm (although not all dogs ...

Once I sit in the chair with headphones of, he will actually jump and whine until I let him on my lap. He is a kijiji rescue. The last owner said he was two years old, but after a visit to the vet, it is now believed he is about eight. Oliver had 23 teeth removed right away due to a serious infection and since then he has grown more hair (seriously, its more than two inches long!) and his heart murmur has disappeared. He gained 1 ½ lbs, making him now a full 7lbs! We believe he is a Chihuahua Papillion cross. His hobbies include long walks, playing ball, running around like a crazy dog, chasing the cat and hanging out with his family. If youd like to be a guest on the show, please contact us. ...

Digger is an older boy I took in as a stray some years ago. His previous life is a mystery, but as I got his health checked, we discovered kidney disease, a heart murmur, and severe dental decay. The veterinarian advised that we get a handle on his kidney disease before exploring options for dental surgery. This began a long process of many different medications and supplements. Kidney disease is complicated. It causes dehydration (which in turn, causes constipation), loss of protein through urine, weight loss, nausea, and other symptoms. He currently takes... Epakitin to reduce phosphate levels. Hilarys Renal Blend for overall kidney support. Daily IV fluids for hydration (shown in photos). A probiotic blend for digestion. Gabapentin for oral pain (until surgery). As well as an anti-nausea and appetite stimulant if he stops eating. Im happy to say that after imploring these medications and therapies, we have his kidney disease under control for now. Unfortunately, kidney disease is ...
Before we could get through the two weeks of tests that were scheduled, Mikes body began to succumb to the tumors that took two solid months of feeling progressively sicker to find. His body could do no more. Liver failure led to kidney failure, which led to a heart murmur and irregular palpitations and a calcium release from his bone marrow into his blood (which might bring osteoporosis to a 37 year old man). The dominoes were falling, and the doctors scrambled to play catch up as quickly as hospital-possible. After all, cancer had stopped being a silent killer some two months ago and was now loudly chanting victory. It was a fairly impressive head start by a formidable foe ...
The animals were removed due to unsanitary conditions, which it typically a byproduct of overcrowding.. One of the dogs needed emergency care and was immediately transferred from the residence to a nearby animal hospital.. The remaining 20 dogs were brought to ARLs Dedham and Boston Animal Care and Adoption Centers and have received thorough veterinary exams.. Several of the dogs were diagnosed with heart murmurs and dental disease, and the majority will be available for adoption later in the week.. ARL urges the public to reach out to their local animal control or ARL Law Enforcement (617-426-9170 x110, or [email protected]) should they know of an overcrowding situation.. Overcrowding can lead to serious health concerns not only for the animals, but for people living among the animals as well. Additionally, overcrowding often leads to under-socialized animals, creating ongoing behavioral issues, particularly for older animals.. ARL Law Enforcement also wishes to thank and commend Weymouth ...
My poor little Walt is yet another sebaceous cyst sufferer. The one on his shoulder burst yesterday. Its about the size of a dime. I cleaned it out with a little peroxide and the only other thing I had available to me was some triple antibiotic ointment so I put a bit on. Tonight when I got home from work around 7:30 pm he seemed a bit lethargic so I called the veterinarian and they had some scrub that they advised I wash it with twice a day until we can get it removed (he has a slight heart murmur that must be tested before they can place him under anesthesia). However, prior to even using the wash, I got home to find him a little lethargic. Im worried that this may be some side effect of the ointment - an allergic reaction or maybe it was too open of a wound and the ointment shouldnt have been used? Or worse, could he have ingested some? Or do you think it is more likely that an infection is brewing causing the lethargy? If he remains this way they said that I can bring him in tomorrow ...
Referral accuracy for murmur evaluations probably is low because the differences between innocent and pathological murmurs can be subtle. Computer-assisted analysis of heart sounds may increase the accuracy of primary care referrals to pediatric cardiologists, but the accuracy of the only FDA-approved artificially-intelligent cardiac auscultation system, Zargis Medical Corporations Cardioscan®, has never been determined prospectively in an unselected population of live pediatric patients. As a primary endpoint, the study herein proposed would prospectively compare the sensitivity and specificity of the Cardioscan® with that of CHMCAs Pediatric Cardiologists in the identification of cardiac pathology among 300 new and unselected pediatric patients referred to CHMCAs cardiologists for murmur evaluations, using two-dimensional transthoracic echocardiography as the common gold-standard. Double-blinding will be in place. The study also will attempt secondarily to gauge the clinical significance ...

Diastolic Murmurs - Aortic Regurgitation. You are listening to a typical murmur caused by aortic valve regurgitation. Aortic regurgitation is mostly seen in males, with a 3:1 ratio as compared to females. In 2/3 of cases, the regurgitation is secondary to rheumatic heart disease, and may have a component of aortic stenosis. Aortic regurgitation may also be primarily congenital or associated with syphilis infection, Marfan syndrome, or valvular deterioration due to infective endocarditis.. The murmur of aortic regurgitation is complex. The left ventricle is typically dilated secondary to extreme volume overload, as it must handle both the forward flow delivered from the left atria as well as the regurgitant flow from the aorta. This large volume of blood is ejected rapidly during systole, and an early mid-systolic flow murmur is frequently audible over the right upper sternal border with radiation into the neck.. The most notable aspect of the murmur is the diastolic sound produced as the blood ...
Introduction Asymptomatic cardiac murmurs are commonly detected on first day newborn examination. Majority of these get referred to cardiology services, as majority of the healthy term babies are discharged home on the first day of life. The waiting period for evaluation of the neonates by the Paediatric cardiology services is increasing partly because of increased identification of asymptotic murmur and increasing survival of children with critical and serious congenital heart disease. We recognised the increased waiting time for evaluation of the neonates with asymptomatic murmur and started Neonatal echocardiography clinic 2 years ago.. ...
One of the key features of clinical learning at Sydney Medical School are the SCORPIO sessions (SCORPIO apparently stands for structured, clinical, objective, referenced, problem-orientated, integrated and organised). With the exception of a few pseudo-SCORPIOs during haematology block, Ive generally found SCORPIOs to be great learning experiences and Im quite fortunate that my clinical school reputedly organises more SCORPIOs than the other USyd clinical schools.. Each SCORPIO session generally starts with a short introductory session to outline the session, after which students divide into small groups and rotate around several teaching stations. Each station features either a patient with a certain clinical presentation to solve/discuss - e.g. a young lady with immune thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) - or known clinical signs to elicit - e.g. a gentleman with a pronounced aortic valve ejection systolic murmur and carotid bruits.. For endocrinology block, the clinical school has organised a ...
To the Editor:. A 28-year-old man presented with 4 weeks of malaise, 1 week of progressive bilateral leg edema, hematuria, and 2 days of dyspnea and orthopnea. There were no other symptoms. He had chronic hepatitis C and a remote history of asthma. He smoked crack cocaine, marijuana, and cigarettes, but denied intravenous drug or alcohol use. His medical history was otherwise unremarkable and he was not taking any medications. He denied recent dental work.. The patient appeared weak and ill. His initial temperature was 36°C and he remained afebrile. Pulse was 115 beats per minute. Significant physical findings included clubbing, bilateral pitting edema past the knees, jugular venous distension, ascites, and bilateral pulmonary crackles. Cardiac auscultation demonstrated an S3, a diastolic murmur along the left sternal border, and a systolic murmur at the apex. There were no dermatologic manifestations, nasopharyngeal abnormalities, or inflamed joints.. Laboratory data revealed a leukocyte count ...
Mitral reguritation is a relatively common finding in coronary heart disease. In this series of 127 patients, selected with a view to coronary or left ventricular surgery on the basis of severity of symptoms, the incidence was 39 (31%). Mitral regurgitation is significantly more common in patients with a history or electrocardiographic evidence of previous myocardial infarction. Clinically it may present as a pan- or late systolic or even a mid-systolic, ejection type murmur at the apex or at the left sternal edge; but in 39 per cent of the patients with angiographic mitral regurgitation no murmur was present. Angiographically important mitral regurgitation (grades 2-4/4) was usually associated with a systolic murmur; this finding was independent of ejection fractions. Left ventricular enlargement clinically or radiographically is likely to accompany mitral regurgitation but left atrial enlargement (electrocardiographically or on chest x-ray) is a more reliable pointer to mitral regurgitation ...

False allegations of child sexual abuse (CSA) do happen. Nobody knows for sure how many are false, because there are serious problems in knowing who is factually innocent. The majority of people accused of this dreadful crime are not convicted. Between 2012-14, 17% of those accused were convicted, read more here. Cynics, and victims of child abuse may naturally think that those not convicted were guilty but got away with it. Victims of wrongful allegations of CSA may think that most of those found not guilty and many who were convicted are actually innocent. The actual proportion of those accused who are actually innocent probably lies somewhere between these two extremes. Dr Ros Burnett of Oxford Criminology Department prefers to use the term wrongful allegation instead of false allegation, because the latter description gives the impression that all such allegations are made maliciously. This is not the case, some wrongful allegations are due to the accuser misinterpreting an action that ...
