Pediatric cardiology helps children with heart conditions. Kids can get support and treatment from before birth (fetal life) up to and including age 16.
Heart conditions include:
- Heart defects
- Heart rhythm issues
- Heart muscle issues
The pediatric cardiology team is based at the Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital in Saskatoon and provide services at the Regina General Hospital every week. Kids can receive treatment, heart ultrasounds and other heart tests through their pediatric cardiologist at these hospitals and in outpatient (non-overnight) clinics. In some cases, the team can be accessed through Telehealth if you and your child are unable to visit these two hospitals.
Talk to your doctor or nurse practitioner and ask how to see a Pediatric Cardiologist.
