As a FNP you will get the opportunity to diagnose heart murmurs. This usually causes panic in parents, so you need to understand what you are hearing. Describe a situation in which you diagnose a heart murmur on a pediatric patient. Include grade/intensity, timing in cardiac cycle, location on the chest where murmur is the loudest, radiations or transmission, quality, duration and pitch. Use Box 38.2 (Auscultatory Findingsâ€“Innocent versus Pathologic Murmur) and Table 38.5(Common Innocent Murmurs) from your Burns’ Pediatric Primary Care textbook. Name the murmur and follow-up recommendations.
