Abstract: “Cardiac murmurs” are noise associated with deviation in blood flow dynamics and improper closure of valves. The whooshing sound is produced by blood flow across abnormal valves or due to abnormal connection between heart chambers. There are various equipment like ECG recording electrical activity of heart and echocardiography depicting structure of heart using Doppler waves. But these equipments require hospitalization and may be expensive to the patient. Clinical tool like stethoscope helps physician to know about heart murmurs, this require expert opinion and a trained ear of a doctor.
