These normal noises are extremely common in children. Up to a quarter (25%) of healthy children have these soft murmurs at different times.

These noises are often heard at one of the routine examinations, or when there is an incidental infection. They are louder when the heart is beating faster than usual e.g. with a temperature, or if the child is particularly worried. They are usually soft, heard in one area, change with sitting or lying, frequently have a buzzing or musical quality and are the only finding. The rest of the examination is normal.

The noise is often so typical that no tests are necessary. You may be reassured that all is well and the child may be discharged with a normal heart and no restrictions.
