Information About Heart Murmurs

A heart murmur is a whooshing sound between heartbeats that a doctor hears through a stethoscope. The whoosh is just an extra noise that the blood makes as it flows through the heart. Most murmurs don't mean anything is wrong. But sometimes they are a sign of a heart problem.
