Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Neill and Edward Clark, professors in pediatric cardiology, along with pediatric nurse Carleen Clark, have written a reasonably detailed book for parents on heart defects and diseases in children. They outline how the heart develops in a child and show what can go wrong during the growing process. They also discuss the risk factors for heart defects, explain how heart problems are recognized, and cover treatment options. While the severity of heart problems in children is not minimized, the authors emphasize that most conditions are now treatable. Parents are reassured that none of their actions would probably have caused or prevented their child's condition. Transplantation and accompanying medical conditions with heart defects are given brief attention. Recommended for family health collections.

Format: Hardcover
This book was very informative, but we have found that the newer publication released in 1998 was more up to date. "Heart Defects in Children - What Every Parent Should Know" was written by a nurse, and has easier to understand explainations of the defects. It also has a draw in heart section where you can more easily visualize your child's defect. Check it out.

Format: Hardcover
As parents of two children with congenital heart defects, we found this book to be a wonderful resource. It is a must buy for parents who find themselves faced with the prospect of raising a child with a heart condition. This book does a wonderful job of describing the types of heart defects in terms the average person can understand.

My husband and I found this very useful when our child was first diagnosed, I was always referring to the list of terms and the pictures.
My only regret is that of another review in that the statistical information is out of date.

I learned a lot from reading this book when my daughter was in the hospital having her first heart surgery. But the mortality statistics are outdated. The outcomes for children having heart surgery and children with HLHS and Truncus are much more hopeful than they were in 1992.
