FAQs

The paediatric cardiology section focuses on diagnosing and treating cardiac diseases in infants, children, and adolescents. Services include congenital heart defect examinations, echocardiograms, electrocardiograms (ECGs), Holter monitoring, and care of various cardiac disorders in paediatric patients.

Non-invasive testing such as echocardiograms and electrocardiograms are commonly used to diagnose congenital cardiac abnormalities. These tests enable paediatric cardiologists to evaluate the anatomy and function of the heart, identify problems, and devise effective treatment programmes.

Although symptoms might vary, common signs of heart problems in children include difficulties feeding, low weight gain, fast breathing, persistent cough, cyanosis (bluish colouring of the skin), and fainting. If parents observe any uncommon symptoms in their kid, they should contact their paediatrician, who may refer them to a paediatric cardiologist for additional evaluation.

Treatment is determined by the individual cardiac disease found. Some diseases may resolve on their own, whilst others may necessitate medication, surgical intervention, or catheter-based therapies. Paediatric cardiologists collaborate with other specialists to create comprehensive, individualised treatment strategies for each child.

If parents observe any alarming symptoms or have a family history of cardiac problems, they should see their paediatrician at once. The paediatrician may refer the kid to a paediatric cardiologist for additional evaluation and diagnostic tests. Early detection and intervention can dramatically improve the results for children with cardiac problems.
