German term or phrase: maschinenartiges Herzgeräusch
All,

I am translating a doctor's letter on a 72 year old patient suffering from a metastatic (pleural, pulmonal, hapatic, bronchial, osseal) brochial carcinoma.

The section in question reads: "über der Lunge rechts amphorisches Atomgeräusch, Herzaktion regelmäßig normfrequent, ***maschinenartiges Herzgeräusch*** über Aorta und Herzspitze.

Thank you.

agree  philgoddard: "Often described as a 'machinery murmur' or a 'washing machine murmur' because it sounds like water being agitated through the wash cycle."

agree  Anne Schulz: "machinery murmur" scheint noch gängiger zu sein // Na ja, einfach genug für den normalen Haus- und Übersetzungsgebrauch – nur wenn man superkorrekt sein will, kann man dazu etliche Überlegungen anstellen :-)
