Heart Health Screening

Heart Health Screening

Children and their parents in six southern districts of the capital Tehran will be examined for heart problems over a two-day period (January 18-19), said Samaneh Zamani, director general of the Health Office at Tehran Municipality (TM).
“Accordingly, 13 heart surgeons will screen and offer counseling services to the children and their parents at 13 health centers in the districts,” IRNA quoted her as saying.
There are many different types of heart problems that can affect children. They include congenital heart defects, viral infections that affect the heart and even heart diseases that are acquired later in childhood due to illnesses or genetic disorders.
Some of the heart diseases like congenital heart defects may not have clinical symptoms. “If diagnosed at an early stage, most of the diseases can be treated successfully,” she added.
