Managing your heart condition.
If you are an adult living with a heart defect, you should have regular access to a cardiologist. This is vital to ensure you talk about about treatments, medicines, and the ongoing and long-term care for your specific CHD condition.
Armed with this knowledge you can make the best possible choices for your health.
When seeing a CHD Specialist, Cardiologist or GP it helps to know your medical history. This includes:
- Type of heart defect you have
- Procedures or surgeries you have had performed
- Medications that are currently prescribed for you and were prescribed in the past
- Type(s) of care you need.
