Frequency Spectrum (pitch) of the Flow Murmur.

This murmur is somewhat musical, with one strong and narrow (tone) peak.
However overall width is about 85 to 140 Hz.


Systolic Murmur has Intensity =31.39% (grade 2 is between 20% to 45%).
Murmur Duration is 70%.

It is early systolic murmur, grade 2. Its intensity score puts it into
innocent category, frequency half-bandwidth (24 Hz) is wider than
what is required for musical Still's. Frequency Score is 115 Hz also
typical for innocent murmurs.

CONCLUSIONS:

Systolic Murmur is immediately visible on the Phonocardiogram
and Heart Energy Signature Spectrogram. It is low in intensity
and frequency spectrum is wider than that of Still's (vibratory) murmur.
No diastolic murmurs. This is innocent flow murmur, grade 2+.
S2 normal split was detected. Intermittent S3 was detected.
