Functional murmurs are short, early systolic or midsystolic murmurs of grade 2/6 or less that are well-localized to the area of the left sternal border and diminish in intensity when the patient stands, sits up, or strains during the Valsalva maneuver. Patients with functional murmurs have normal neck veins, apical impulse, arterial pulse, and heart tones.

Functional murmurs, also called innocent murmurs, are noises made by the normal heart or its surrounding structures. At least 80% of children have functional murmurs at some point during childhood. The PPS murmur is a common innocent murmur in babies. Still’s murmur is a twanging, vibratory sound typically found during the preschool years.

Functional (high-flow – also called physiological) murmurs are innocent murmurs that are heard in the absence of cardiac valvular disease. An example is an aortic systolic ejection murmur caused by a high cardiac output state, as in athletes and anaemia. Another example is pregnancy, where the rise in cardiac output. Functional murmur without anatomic abnormality for the murmur. Musical Murmur: Having a musical quality: Pansystolic Murmur: Occupies entire interval of systole.
