Devices used in pediatric cardiology
  • Stethoscope: This is an acoustic device which the pediatric cardiologist uses to listen to the internal sounds such as heart sounds. It can also be used to listen for bowel sounds, lung sounds and bruits (renal and carotid).
  • EKG calipers: This is a device used to measure intervals and also compare intervals on EKGs.
  • Pacemaker: This is an electrical device which is implanted to replace the natural pacemaker of the heart.
  • Defibrillator: This is an electrical device which alters the heart’s rhythm using electrical energy. It is used to top fibrillation of the heart.

Diagnostic tests and procedures

  • Echocardiogram: – a sound wave picture to check the structure and function of the heart.
  • Ambulatory ECG: This is a test, which is done during activity to look for any abnormal heart rhythms.
  • Exercise test: This is a test to measure if the heart is functioning well.
  • Cardiac Catheterization: This test involves placing a small tube (catheter) in or near the heart for closer observation. It can also e used to relieve the blockage.
  • Blood tests: This includes testing the levels of cholesterol, Creatine kinase, and Troponin .
  • Echocardiography (echo): This test inspects the heart’s chambers and blood flow.
  • Transthoracic echocardiogram (TTE): This is an echocardiogram of the heart via the thorax. It is a noninvasive procedure and takes a short time.
  • Transesophageal echocardiogram (TEE): This is an echocardiogram of the heart through the esophagus. It can require general anesthesia or sedation.
  • Cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging (CMR): An MRI of the heart utilizes the ECG to observe specific mechanical functions of the heart.
  • Auscultation: This test involves listening to sounds such as heart sounds using a stethoscope.
  • Electrocardiography (ECG or EKG): This test measures the electrical activity of the heart using electrodes which are placed on the skin.
