abstract

  • A great variety of problems referable to the cardiovascular system can prompt a visit to the pediatric emergency room. From the initial presentation of congenital heart disease, to the subsequent life-long management of these patients, to miscellaneous problems like Kawasaki disease and chest pain, the front-line pediatrician must be skilled in the recognition and early management of myriad complaints. This article focuses on information that can assist the emergency pediatrician in the evaluation and treatment of the cardiac patient from arrival in the emergency room until transfer of care to the pediatric cardiologist or inpatient staff.
