Paediatric Cardiology is a medical practice that revolves around cardiac (heart) diseases in developing children ranging from infants to 19 years old. A paediatric cardiologist generally treats congenital heart disease (inherited or present by birth), arrhythmias (variations in heartbeat rhythm) and disturbances in circulatory functions. In addition to having a deep knowledge of cardiology, they have an understanding of paediatrics too, so that they can diagnose and treat a child or an adolescent’s cardiac ailment in a wholesome manner. Pediatric Cardiologists can also have a career that focuses on basic science research or in medical education.
