  • Innocent Cardiac Murmurs

    […] murmurs. cyanosis or clubbing abnormal breathing (tachypnoea, intercostal recession) failure to thrive abnormal pulses - diminished or absent femorals abnormal cardiac impulse hepatomegaly[gpnotebook.com] Investigations If the GP understands how a typical Still's murmur sounds and how to make it vary with posture then more serious pathology will rarely be missed.[gponline.com] Liver edge: Hepatomegaly may reflect a high right atrial pressure associated with congestive heart failure. Precordium: The precordium should be normally quiet.[pedcard.rush.edu]

  • Left to Right Cardiac Shunt
