A 5 y/o g is referred to a cardiologist because of a murmur heard during a routine examination.

Which one of the following clinical characteristics is consistent with an innocent murmur ?

(They always ask this question in the examination !!!!)



1. audible only in diastole

2. audible throughout systole

3. associated with a precordial heave

4. attenuated with change in body position

5. radiates from apex to the axilla

Thanks ! Very important concept in heart murmur in kid and adult medicine
