Pediatric Heart Information for Patients, Families, Medical Professionals

The Heart Institute team at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center developed the Heart Institute Encyclopedia to provide easily accessible information on cardiac diseases, defects, disorders, and problems that may affect a child’s heart. The Heart Institute Encyclopedia also provides information about options available to diagnose and treat children’s heart conditions and anomalies.

Cincinnati Children’s Heart Institute staff believe supplying information is a vital component to providing the highest level of care to patients, as well as support to their families, physicians and other health care professionals.


The encyclopedia includes topics such as:

– Cardiac Anomalies / Congenital Heart Defects
– Heart Diseases
– Signs and Symptoms
– Diagnostic Methods
