Heart Children: A Practical Handbook for Parents

Heart Children: A Practical Handbook for Parents

For the past 30 years ‘Heart Children: A Practical Handbook for Parents‘ has guided parents and families through the heart conditions that children may be born with or acquire, the treatments available, and how to deal with the many medical and social problems that they may have to face. This fifth edition of the book has attempted to keep pace with the many innovations in the field of paediatric cardiology, which are now preserving the lives that would have been lost a short generation ago. It distils much of the practical knowledge developed in the kitchens, bathrooms and children’s bedrooms by parents struggling with children who won’t eat, sleep, or take their medicine, explaining where to get help, or at the very least empathy.

The book has been painstakingly put together by: by Hazel Greig-Midlane (Editor), Stankhar Sridharan (Editor), to whom we are extremely grateful.
