Pediatric Cardiology focuses on screening and treatment of heart disease in children. Screening begins during neonatal period, under one-month in age, and continues on through adolescence up to the age of 18.
Diagnostic support exams utilized are as comprehensive as those used for adults and include the following: electrocardiogram, MAPA, HOLTER, stress testing, and echocardiogram.
Pediatric Cardiology also plays an important role in prevention of sudden death during engagement in sports activities, considering that the majority of children do engage in this type of activity. Prevention of these events consists of performing electrocardiograms as well as guidance for subsequent exams, should the need for such be identified.
