Paediatric Cardiology is a branch that focuses on the diagnosis and management of heart conditions in children from birth to adolescence. This speciality deals with the evaluation and management of congenital heart defects, arrhythmias, cardiomyopathy, and other heart conditions in children. Paediatric cardiologists are specially trained to provide care to children with heart conditions and work closely with a team of healthcare professionals to provide comprehensive care to young patients. They use a variety of diagnostic tools and treatment options to help children with heart conditions live healthy, active lives.

We treat a wide range of heart conditions in children, including:

  • Congenital heart defects: These are abnormalities of the heart that occur before birth, such as holes in the heart, valve defects, or abnormal blood vessels.
  • Heart murmurs: These are sounds made by blood flowing through the heart that may indicate an underlying heart condition.
  • Arrhythmias: It refers to irregularities in the rhythm of the heart that can lead to it beating either too quickly, too slowly, or in an irregular pattern.
  • Cardiomyopathy: It is a condition of the heart muscle that can cause the heart to become thickened or weakened.
  • Kawasaki disease (MIS-C/MIS-N): This is a condition that can cause inflammation of the blood vessels, including those in the heart.
  • Rheumatic fever and Heart Disease: This is a condition that can develop after a strep throat infection and can cause inflammation of the heart and other organs.
  • Hypertension- It is a condition in which blood pressure increases.

At Max Healthcare, we understand the unique challenges that come with diagnosing and treating heart conditions in children. We have a team of internationally renowned paediatric cardiologists who provide the highest quality care to our youngest patients.

Some of the latest technology we use includes:

  • Echocardiography: This is an ultrasound-based imaging technique used to provide detailed images of the heart's structure and function.
  • Electrocardiography (ECG): It is a non-invasive test that records the electrical activity of the heart. We use the latest ECG technology to diagnose and monitor heart rhythm disorders.
  • Cardiac catheterisation: It involves inserting a thin, flexible tube into a blood vessel and navigating it up to the heart. It is a minimally invasive procedure that helps diagnose and treat various heart conditions in children.
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI): This is a non-invasive imaging technique that uses a powerful magnetic field and radio waves to create detailed images of the heart and other organs. We use the latest MRI technology to diagnose and monitor heart conditions in children.
  • Transesophageal echocardiography (TEE): This is a specialised echocardiography technique that involves inserting a small ultrasound probe down the throat and into the oesophagus to get a closer look at the heart. We use the latest TEE technology to provide highly detailed images of the heart's structure and function.

At Max Healthcare, our conviction is that every child should receive the best care possible, and we are committed to delivering that care in a compassionate and supportive setting. If your child has been diagnosed with a heart condition or is encountering symptoms like chest pain, shortness of breath, or fainting, we urge you to contact us without delay to arrange a consultation with one of our experienced paediatric cardiologists. We are always available to assist you!
