Cardiology

This medical specialty focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the heart and major blood vessels in children. When your pediatrician suspects that your child has a congenital or acquired heart problem, a pediatric cardiologist may be asked to investigate further. Children are often referred to the pediatric cardiologist for:

  • palpitations or heart murmurs
  • heart muscle disorders
  • rhythm disturbances or hypertension
  • chest pain and/or dizziness

Pediatric cardiologists interpret the results of diagnostic procedures such as electrocardiograms, echocardiograms and exercise tests, and share them with the child's parents and the pediatrician. Pediatric cardiologists evaluate and care for newborns, infants, children, adolescents and young adults in both hospital and outpatient settings.
