We just completed a thorough cardiologist evaluation on DS who is applying for Class of 2024. A doctor thought he heard a slight heart murmur when he had a sports physical last year so we decided to get a complete check up. Cardiologist found "trace regurgitation in mitral, tricuspid and pulmonic valve." Everything else was normal in size and function. Is this grounds for DQ? Thank you for input.

Get an ECHO which will help clarify the etiology of the murmur. It is unlikely that your DS has mitral, tricuspid, and pulmonic insufficiency.

When DS had his DoDMERB exam, the physician detected a possible heart murmur. DoDMERB required specific tests be run by a cardiologist and submitted back. In my son's case, it was not a true heart murmur, and the report from the cardiologist was sufficient to have him cleared.

My PCP thought he heard a heart murmur in me. I went to the cardiologist and had every test in the books (echo, stress test, I think others) and she didn't find anything wrong and didn't hear a heart murmur. So, based in this and Wagmore's story, I would say anything is possible.

Even if it’s a murmur, it still may be nothing. All depends on the etiology.
DS DQ’d for Asthma but not his murmur.
