Split (S2) Heart Sound
Hi, I am looking for answers as to my daughter's physical for sports last week. Two year ago, my daughter would have chest pains during basketball practice and I was referred to a pediatric cardiologist. The specialist did an ultrasound and found nothing wrong with her heart. The chest pains eventually subsided about a year later.
Since then, my daughter has gone through a huge growth spurt (6 inches in less than 6 months). I took her for her sports physical and the doctor said that she has a split heart sound. She didn't want to follow up with anything because my daughter had an ultrasound of her heart two years ago. I am still concerned because she has never had this before so how could it be normal or at least NOT be a sign of something serious?
I have an appointment with the pediatric heart cardiologist but they can't take her for another two months. Has anybody ever heard of this? If you have, please share what you know. According to the general practitioner, the normal person's heart sounds like lub-dub, lub-dub. But, my daughter's heart sounds like luba-dub, luba-dub.
Any information would be helpful and much appreciated.
