Treatment for Heart Murmurs in Children

Healthy children with innocent murmurs do not need heart murmur treatment because they have a normal heart. If your child has an innocent murmur, alert your pediatrician during regular checkups.
The treatment for heart problems that cause abnormal murmurs varies depending on the specific heart problem. For example, the treatment of congenital heart disease is based on the type and severity of the heart defect or defects causing the murmur. Treatment may include medications or surgery. Children with congenital heart disease are treated by doctors who specialize in treating children's heart problems (pediatric cardiologists).
