Pediatric patients require special attention for treating their cardiac conditions and preventing heart failure. Treatment for heart failure in children may involve professionals from multiple medical disciplines.

Heart Failure in Pediatric Patients describes the pathophysiology, classification and clinical presentation of heart failure in pediatric populations with an emphasis on infants with congenital heart disease.

Readers will learn about different modes of clinical investigations for pediatric heart patients as well as heart failure in conditions of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. The book also presents chapters on the management of heart failure including surgery in critical conditions.

This book explains concepts with interesting images and videos that illustrate and accurately describe cases. it answers the needs of cardiology learners at different levels; undergraduate, postgraduate, specialists and allied professionals who will be able to benefit from the perspective of several cardiologists working at different regional medical centers.
