vascular murmur
Explanation:
I think that 'karsus' is normally 'vascular murmur' or 'bruit' (i.e. kar = blood vessel, sus = rushing noise), though I'm not sure how that fits in here.

agree  conniebrathen: Of the two, bruit is the best term here, typically used for the whoosing sound from a well working fistula. (As a vascular sonographer,I sometimes scan said fistulas, so I can offer some certainty about the term)
