  1. Echocardiography in children
    Echocardiography in children
    Structural echocardiography is performed to visualise the heart in real time using ultrasound waves. It is safe, non-invasive and easy to perform in children. The results are provided on the same day. Echocardiography is the gold standard investigation to diagnose congenital heart defects and performed on bedside or in the outpatient clinic. Functional echocardiography provide physiological information on bedside and helps in making individualised clinical decision making in sick children. Clinical parameters are indirect / surrogate markers of perfusion whilst functional echocardiography can help in assessing preload, cardiac functions, afterload, cardiac output and blood flow directly. Hence, it provides direct assessment of haemodynamic status in real time on bedside.
  2. Congenital Heart Disease in Children
    Congenital Heart Disease in Children
    The incidence of congenital heart defects in children is around 8-9 per 1,000 in general population. Around half of significant congenital heart defects are diagnosed after birth Children are often suspected to have heart defect if they are noted to have heart murmur or low oxygen levels. However, not all children with heart murmurs have heart defects and a small portion of children with heart defects may not have any murmur. Infants and young children with heart defects often present with non-specific symptoms such as feeding difficulties, breathing difficulties, breathlessness, recurrent chest infections or easily tiredness. Echocardiography is the investigation of choice to diagnose congenital heart defects in children.
