  • Can a child get an ECG?

    Yes. Any Pediatric Cardiologist can do it READ MORE

  • My son had a heart transplant. What will recovery entail?

    The time from heart transplantation until doing normal activities varies and depends on how well your son was going into the transplant, his underlying disease (cardiomyopathy? Congenital heart disease?), and nutritional status. Best case scenarios can be being discharged 1 week after transplant, but, of course, can be much longer. In the best case, activities can restart within the month. Many transplant teams will have the child wear a mask for 6-12 months and going back to school is commonly over the same time span. He is likely to be able to do more activities than pre-transplant, but, again, this is dependent on several individualized factors. He will need to be compulsive taking his medications and following the plans outlined by his transplant team (clinic, cath with biopsies, blood draws, etc.). READ MORE
