• The Heart House

Plan of Action

If you have been told that your child has a heart murmur, follow this flow chart to help you determine whether your child needs to see a pediatric cardiologist.

If the answer to all of these questions was no, rest assured that your child has an innocent heart murmur. However, this chart is intended to increase your awareness about heart murmurs, and should not be used as a substitute for a doctor's care. You should follow-up with your pediatrician or family doctor and follow their advice.
