Mayo Clinic offers the entire spectrum of pediatric heart care services, from selecting the most appropriate medication for a condition to handling the most complex pediatric cardiac surgery and heart transplant for children, using a multispecialty team approach to care.
Experts in Mayo's Division of Pediatric Cardiology evaluate signs and symptoms and treat numerous heart disease and heart-related conditions in children and teenagers.
Signs and symptoms
Examples of signs and symptoms evaluated in our Division of Pediatric Cardiology include:
- Heart murmurs
- Arrhythmia (abnormal heart rhythm)
- Tachycardia (fast heart rate)
- Bradycardia (slow heart rate)
- Syncope (fainting)
Diseases and conditions
Our experts diagnose and treat all types of heart diseases and related conditions in children, such as:
- Congenital heart defects
- Arrhythmias (heart rhythm disorders)
- Cardiomyopathies and heart failure (heart function disorders)
- Acquired and other heart disorders
Mayo's pediatric and adult cardiologists collaborate closely to coordinate care as your child ages if he or she has a condition that requires lifelong treatment and follow-up. Pediatric patients typically transfer to a separate adult hospital or clinic, with new physicians and a new treatment team, as they transition from pediatric to adult care.
