A boy with patent (open) ductus arteriosus (usually closes within 1st hr after delivery but doesn’t stay close until healed – sealed shut) was delivered
6 hrs ago and is being held by his mother. As the nurse enters the room to assess the neonate’s vital
signs, the mother states that my baby has a heart murmur and the mother says, “Does that mean he has a bad heart?” Which response by the nurse would be appropriate?
"The murmur is caused by a natural opening which can take a week or two close"
