Pediatric & Geriatric Cardiology

A pediatric cardiologist is a pediatrician who has earned valuable training in diagnosing and treating children's cardiac problems. Evaluation and treatment may start with the foetus as because heart problems can now be detected before birth. The division of Pediatric Cardiology is responsible for the diagnosis of congenital heart defects, performing diagnostic procedures such as echocardiograms, cardiac catheterizations, and electrophysiology studies, and for the on-going management of the sequel of heart disease in infants, children and adolescents.

Geriatric cardiology means cardiovascular care of patients 65 years of age or older. The geriatric population is further broken down into elderly (between ages 75 and 84 years) and very elderly (85 years of age or older), with numbers reaching 40 million and 13 million people, respectively. Vascular disorders such as atherosclerosis and peripheral arterial disease cause significant morbidity and mortality in aged people.
