Heart Murmur–Related Treatment

Your child does not need any treatment just for a heart murmur.

Most heart murmurs in children do not mean there’s a problem. They will go away on their own as the child gets older.

If your child’s heart murmur is from a structural heart problem, like ventricular septal defect, or some other health problem, like anemia, your child may need treatment for that condition.
