Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Yes, you can hear not only the silent room. Average person's carotid artery pulse and blood flow sounds can be heard in ears. During palpitations, we can hear the condition aortic stenosis blood flow sound. So many valvular diseases can be understood.

Thank you doctor,

Is this a disease or normal?

Carotid blood flow can be heard in normal person while doing exercise, or some can listen to when we keep our head one side. In diseases, it is called a murmur. In atherosclerosis, a loud blood flow sound can be heard.
