there are varying levels of heart murmurs. Mine is VERY minor, but I can feel the flutter when it happens.

Nope, I've never noticed any change in the info from my HRM

I wouldn't think so, but your doctor might be the person to ask about it.

Would a heart rate monitor be effected by a heart murmur? I have had my heart murmur checked by my doctor, but forgot to ask if it would skew the reading from my heart rate monitor.
