Each year, over 5,000 children are evaluated in the cardiology outpatient services department. There they are diagnosed and treated as outpatients when possible and referred for inpatient testing as indicated. Diagnostic tests include full non-invasive diagnostic studies, including electrocardiography, doppler-flow, echocardiography, stress testing, holter and event recorder monitoring, and fetal and transesophageal echocardiography. Outpatient cardiology procedures may include catheterizations or minor surgical procedures. All of these cardiology outpatient services are provided with expertise at Nicklaus Children's Hospital, formerly Miami Children's Hospital.
