Pediatric Cardiology – Day 8

It was a pretty good day in pediatric cardiology. A couple surprisingly interesting cases. Surprising because they were supposed to be basic consults with normal workups and no cardiac relevance, but ended up being potentially cardiac-relevant. There was a good amount of talk about wearables today as well. One patient caught some interesting heart stuff (possible SVT) on his Garmin heart monitor belt/ strap thing. One patient’s dad developed an Apple Watch app that tracks and plots his daughters heart rates on a graph. All the patients and families were so lovely and now that I think about it I haven’t really encountered a “difficult” family during this whole rotation so far. While there are some stuff I’m still missing here in cardiology, there are also certain things I here that I like a lot that I definitely wouldn’t get in primary care.
