Cardiac Problems in Children, Secrets Revealed


Pediatric heart diseases have a wide scope of differential diagnosis that ranges from the benign to the life threatening. General pediatricians meet these problems every day in their practice and may have to make difficult decisions. Throughout our panel discussion we will tackle these common problems. We will ask our experts to share their knowledge and experience regarding the most bothersome questions. 
Is this patient suffering a rheumatic fever? Should I consider Kawasaki in this one year old child? Do I refer this patient for an echocardiography? What are the newest updates in the treatment of heart failure? Will my patient need an open heart surgery or can an interventional procedure solve the problem? Do we need a national pulse oximetry screening program?
At the Cardiology panel discussion PEDIA EGYPT 2019, you will know the answer to these questions and so many more. Come meet and interact with the biggest names in Pediatric cardiology
