The doctor at my child's examination said ' The heart revealed a regular rate and rhythm. (and I don't know the pronounciation) He said " no murmur was osciltated (?)" How is that word spelled and does it mean no murmur was noted?
The term that your doctor likely said was, “auscultated,” which means heard. Thus, no murmur heard means that no murmur was noted on your child’s examination. Yes, we do use big medical terms, although it is certainly within your right to ask what we mean if we’re not doing a good job explaining things to you!
