Chest Pain in Children & TeenagersChest pain in children is relatively common. It frequently causes anxiety for children, parents, and grandparents. It can be due to a problem with the heart, hence a cardiac assessment is recommended.
Heart Murmur in Babies & ChildrenHeart murmurs are very common in children. They are extra noises from the heart, heard with a stethoscope. They may represent an underlying heart problem or may be a normal finding (innocent).
Dr Naqvi presents her research at The World Congress In Paediatric Cardiology and Cardiac Surgery In Barcelona.
