Heart Murmurs and Valve Disease
A heart murmur may not always point to a serious medical condition. This video explains what a heart murmur is and why medical treatment may be needed.
The first indication of a murmur is usually an abnormal sound coming from the heart. If a doctor notices a clicking or whooshing noise, he may determine that a patient has a heart murmur. In some instances, no further action is required to correct the problem. Should the murmur reveal a narrowing of a heart valve or valve regurgitation, treatment may be recommended to remedy it.
