One way for the doctor to determine the health of your heart is by listening to your heartbeat. He would do this using his stethoscope. If it beats on a normal rhythm, then you should be alright. In some instances, an irregular beat or some murmurs is coming from your heart. This could be an early indication of bacterial endocarditis. Always be sure that your heart beats on rhythm. All abnormalities cannot be precisely detected without a thorough check-up with your doctor.
