Excellent state of the art facilities using the latest technology
The diagnosis of congenital heart disease is usually made by echocardiography (ultrasound of the heart). Our facilities allow diagnosis to be made in the foetus, in preterm babies weighing 500 grams, as well as in fully grown adolescents and adults.
Our magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanners allow us to make detailed images and measurements of the heart’s pumping chambers (ventricles), valves and the blood flow in the different vessels attached to the heart.
The children’s heart ward is based on Savannah Ward. It has 14 beds, including four cubicles for children with infections that may need isolation, or children who need special precautions. All beds have equipment to monitor the heart rhythm, oxygen levels and breathing.
