Abstract

The assessment of a patient with possible or known heart disease by history taking and physical examination is the purview of all pediatric cardiovascular subspecialists. The requirements for assessment depend on the subspecialty area of expertise, and are as varied as evaluation of a heart murmur by an outpatient cardiologist, evaluation of cyanosis by a neonatologist, assessment prior to surgical intervention by a pediatric cardiac surgeon or anesthesiologist, and evaluation of low cardiac output by a cardiac intensivist. This section will review the important history and physical examination components of a comprehensive cardiac assessment.
