The skill of auscultation of the heart must be learned by supervised experience with patients in whom a wide variety of normal and abnormal heart sounds and murmurs can be heard. Many highly competent physicians responsible for diagnosis and treatment of the pediatric cardiology patient may not be aware that they have not yet become experts at auscultation. Once learned, the skill can be maintained only by frequent practice in hearing and evaluating both subtle and obvious sounds emanating from ...

Summary Internal medicine cardiovascular specialists and internists are going to be seeing increasing numbers of adult patients with congenital heart malformations, and most of them will have had one or more surgical or therapeutic catheter procedures. The nonsurgical cases will have either benign defects or important but inoperable anomalies, or the physician may encounter the rare case which, though amenable to surgery, has escaped operation until adult life. Among patients with postoperative ...

In Reply .—The dialogue in Dr Hersher's letter will doubtless remind many pediatricians of problems that they have had with innocent heart murmurs, especially when trying briefly to explain one to the understandably distraught parent or anxious teenager. To minimize referral of children with innocent murmurs to cardiac centers, Dr Hersher urges pediatricians to take the extra time required to perform a thorough cardiovascular, especially auscultatory, examination. It is asking a lot, Dr Hersher,...

In Reply .—Dr Cheng's kind comments about my editorial on innocent murmurs made me a "sitting duck" for the barb that was to follow ("... he forgot to point out. ") about my glaring omission of the location of Still's murmur! Quite right, Dr Cheng; this murmur of aortic valve origin is heard best not in the so-called primary aortic area (second intercostal space at the right sternal edge) but rather in the secondary aortic area (third to fourth intercostal space at the left sternal edge). This o...

Abstract Atrial ectopic tachycardia is an uncommon life-threatening supraventricular tachycardia in children and is resistant to usual antiarrhythmic drugs. Whereas the cellular mechanism of atrial ectopic tachycardia is unknown, atrial ectopic tachycardia may be due to a form of automaticity. Moricizine HCl has been used primarily for ventricular rhythm disturbances; the drug depresses abnormal automaticity and delayed after-depolarizations but has little effect on normal automaticity. Because ...
